I learned the other day that you can cold infuse tea to make iced tea. You use a little less water and (two tbsp of tea or two tea bags for a half gallon of water) and put the tea bags in and let it steep in the fridge for at least eight hours. It is supposed to work great for green tea especially but he said it would work on any kind. I’ve tried it with pomegranate oolong and summer fruit black tea it is ok it doesn’t quite look like iced tea because it stays pretty light in color and the taste is less acid-y but it still brings out the fruit flavors really well. So it’s super easy and you don’t have to heat the house with boiling water. So I have a new technique in my repertoire.
