What water is best for iced tea?
Water is a crucial ingredient when it comes to making iced tea, as it affects the flavor of the tea. Here are a few tips for choosing the best water for iced tea:
Filtered Water: Filtered water is the best option for iced tea as it removes impurities that can affect the taste of your tea. Using filtered water will ensure that the true flavor of your tea shines through.
Spring Water: Spring water is another great option for iced tea. It's naturally filtered and free of minerals that can affect the taste of your tea.
Tap Water: If you don't have access to filtered or spring water, tap water can be used, but it may contain minerals or chemicals that can affect the taste of your tea. If possible, let your tap water sit for a few hours before using it to allow any chlorine to evaporate.
Remember, the quality of the water you use will have a direct impact on the taste of your iced tea. So, be sure to choose the best water you have available to get the most out of your tea.
What tea-to-water ratio should I use?
When making iced tea with the Craft Cold Brew Filter, it's important to use the right tea-to-water ratio to achieve the perfect flavor. Generally, a good rule of thumb is to use about 1 tablespoon of loose leaf tea for every 8 ounces of water.
However, the exact ratio will depend on the type of tea you're using and your personal preference for strength. For example, if you prefer a stronger cup of tea, you may want to use a little more tea. On the other hand, if you prefer a lighter flavor, you may want to use a little less.
To help you find the right ratio, we recommend experimenting with different amounts of tea leaves until you find the flavor that's right for you. You can also taste your iced tea after several hours of steeping and adjust the ratio accordingly.
Remember, the Craft Cold Brew Filter is a simple and convenient way to make iced tea, and there's no right or wrong way to do it. So, have fun experimenting and finding the tea-to-water ratio that works best for you!
How Long Should I Cold Brew my Iced Tea?
Different teas take different amounts of time to cold brew into delicious iced teas. Matcha is ready instantly, and green and white teas can take as little as 30 minutes. Black teas and herbals will take considerably longer, and are best tasting when they have been cold brewed overnight in the fridge. Feel free to experiment with your favorite tea to find the optimal length of time to cold brew for your preferred flavor!
