How to Make Cold-Brewed Iced Tea

By - Posted on 29 September 2010

The temperature in the San Francisco Bay Area reached over 100 degrees F (38 C) yesterday so I planned ahead by making some cold-brewed iced tea overnight. Here's the recipe:

adding the tea leaves

First, get some high-quality, loose-leaf tea. It can be black tea, green tea, or oolong tea. For regular iced tea, I use Earl Grey or a breakfast tea blend. I also like Oolong tea iced. For an iced green tea, try using a gunpowder green.

The ratio I use is about 1 heaping teaspoon for every cup (8 oz) of water. Put cold water in a jar and add the tea. Cover the jars and place them in the refrigerator for 8 to 12 hours.

Here are three jars of tea. There are two jars of Earl Grey and one of Oolong in the middle:

When it's done, strain out the tea leaves and serve. Put the extra tea back in the refrigerator.
