5 reasons why you should cold brew tea

June 27, 2018

Cold Brew — It's Not Just A Trend

Quality cold brew tea, like coffee, is increasingly popular these days. Even the stalwart snobs among us have happily discovered that it cannot be considered inferior to their preferred paraphernalia-laden methods of brewing. Indeed, cold brew is just different, and with benefits of its own. So let's take a quick look at why cold brew appeals to tea lovers of all types.

5 Basic Benefits Of Cold Brew Tea

 1. Ease

As a brewing method, it doesn't get easier. Tea leaves in any reusable water bottle or pitcher, add water, let sit. Done.

2. Versatility

Any type of tea can be cold-brewed. And it's the most brew-friendly method because it's actually difficult to under or over-brew. You have lots of leniency in terms of following the recipe here!

3. Convenience

Cold brew tea is custom designed for people on-the-go. Put tea leaves in your water bottle and let it brew on your way to wherever. Or pull your pre-brewed bottle out of the fridge to enjoy right away, and all day long!

4. Endurance

The biggest differentiating factor of cold brew is that it maintains its fresh flavor for a really long time, especially if refrigerated. The tea leaves do not "stew" in a cold brew, and keep their vitality. And the slow, gentle cold brew method allows you to refill with fresh water repeatedly and still get a satisfying brew.

5. Health

Research has reported that cold-brewed tea contains more anti-oxidants and less caffeine than hot-brewed tea. So if you're looking for the pure enjoyment of a refreshing tea beverage, but want to keep the caffeine intake down — cold brew is the one!

    Finally, for a visual reference on the ease, versatility, and convenience of making large quantities of a delicious, refreshing cold brew tea beverage — we poured the liter of cold brew Gardenia Flower Oolong Tea in the photo above into a 1.5 liter container, half-filled with ice. Instant picnic!
