Cold Tea Guide

Cold Brew

For 750 milliliters (25 oz) water use 8-10 grams of tea

For 400 milliliters (14 oz) water use 6-8 grams of tea

Place tea in the bottle, add cold spring or filtered water. Attach the top of the bottle and swirl. Refrigerate at least 12 hours for 750ml and 3-6 hours for 400ml. Brew longer for a richer taste.

Remove the bottle from the fridge, swirl gently and serve. Store in the fridge for up to 3 days. Feel free to experiment with type of tea, amount, and brewing time. Enjoy!
