Best Practices for Perfect Iced Tea

Showing: Butterfly Blue Pea Flower Herbal with Lemon, Honey & Ice


1. Use double the recommended amount of loose tea. eg: 1 tablespoon per 12 ounces.

2 Boiled water infusion of loose leaf tea draws out the best flavour.

3 Use recommended infusion times for different kinds of Iced Teas.

Black Loose Tea - 5 minutes - over this time will make it bitter due to tannins

Green Loose Tea - 4 minutes - over this time will make it bitter due to tannins

Fruit & Herb teas - at least 15 minutes, but best left to infuse overnight is the best.

4 This process can be done in any glass heat resistant container or large tea pot.

5 If you do not have a 3" large infuser (available on our site), leave tea loose and stain off.

6 If adding sweetener, do so when infusing the loose tea with boiling water.

7 Once you have your base product, add what you like, fruit, lemons, mint etc.

8 Add Ice!
