The energy requirement is almost nothing and the process is incredibly simple.
1. Add loose-leaf to to a jar 2. Add coldish water 3. Let the tea steep 12-15 hours 4. Strain, ready to drink!
I use 2 tsp per 8 oz cup of water whether I'm making hot or cold tea. So this means using 1/3 cup tea per 8 cups (1/2 gallon) of water. If you want to sweeten with sugar, add it during this step so it has time to dissolve. (My preference is to sweeten with organic agave, which can be added anytime as it dissolves easily into the tea.)
Then, just let the tea steep at least 12 hours on the counter or 15 hours in the fridge before straining. We use a fine mesh strainer found in most kitchens, but any strainer or infuser would work!
Enjoy the refreshing flavors and lasting health benefits of our teas this summer!
