How to hot brew: Boiling water is fine for herbal tea, but steeping green tea in boiling water can create a bitter taste. Heat the water for green tea to 180° or until the water starts to shiver right before any bubbles reach the surface.
How to cold brew: (yields 1 quart): Put 6 teaspoons of tea in a pitcher with 2-3 cups of fresh filtered cold water. Allow to steep overnight. Strain out the leaves and add ice. Garnish or sweeten if desired, and enjoy!
Cold brewing apricot tea is a simple and refreshing way to enjoy its unique flavors. To make a batch, all you need is 6 teaspoons of tea and 2-3 cups of fresh filtered cold water. Start by placing the tea leaves in a pitcher and pouring the cold water over them. Give it a gentle stir to ensure all the leaves are submerged.
Now comes the waiting game. Allow the tea to steep overnight, allowing the flavors to infuse into the water. This slow steeping process creates a smooth and mellow taste, perfect for those hot summer days.
In the morning, strain out the tea leaves, removing any remnants from the brew. The result is a beautiful golden liquid, ready to be enjoyed. If you prefer a stronger flavor, you can always add more tea leaves next time or let it steep for a bit longer.
To enhance the experience, add some ice cubes to your glass, instantly cooling down the tea. If you have a sweet tooth, feel free to add a touch of honey or your preferred sweetener. This will complement the natural sweetness of the apricots and create a delightful balance of flavors.
Now, take a moment to savor the aroma and take a sip of this refreshing beverage. The grassy notes of the green tea blend harmoniously with the creamy sweetness of the apricots. The caffeine content in the tea will provide a gentle energy boost, perfect for starting your day or keeping you alert in the afternoon.
