How To Make Cold Infused Iced Tea In Your Sleep

08Aug06

Iced Tea Pitcher

I think this is the best way to make iced tea, bar none. And it doesn’t get any easier than this, because you can literally sleep while it’s brewing.

Use any loose tea you like, although we think our Honeybee Nepalese oolong is just wonderful when made this way.

Perfect Iced Tea (Makes 4 glasses)

Add about 8 teaspoons of loose leaf tea to an empty pitcher. Then pour about 4 glasses of ice cold water on top of it. Put the pitcher in the refrigerator.

Leave for about 6 hours. It’s a good idea to do this at night, so the leaves infuse while you’re dreaming. If you sleep 8 or 9 hours every night (lucky you!), it really doesn’t matter if the tea is left in there a few extra hours, so don’t fret.

Now, go to bed and get some shut-eye.

The next morning, strain the leaves, and serve over ice. You can sweeten with honey or sugar if you like. Voila!

For iced tea, we generally use about 2 teaspoons of tea per 6 ounce glass (yes, all you astute tea drinkers — that’s double the amount you would use if making hot tea). Although we’d strongly encourage you to experiment with different teas and quantities to find your own tea sweet-spot!

    I’ll have to try this – I like to make sun tea, but it’s not always sunny. I usually use an irish breakfast tea, with a sprig of mint tossed in. Once in a while a light jasmine oolong.

  2. That sounds great Anna! The tea really does taste good this way. And cold infusing makes the liquor crystal clear. I’d love to know how it turns out!

    My mother-in-law loves sun tea too. Although you’ve got to be careful not to leave it out too long. Me – I’m not so patient!

    Hi – Inspired by your example, I tried this with green tea (in bags, sorry). It makes absolutely delicious green tea. Thanks!

  4. Hello Dan,

    We’re delighted you tried this out. Isn’t it just delicious? Try it with black tea too for a refreshing black iced tea. If you want to make a quick iced tea cocktail, try adding a splash of vodka to your iced tea, lots of ice, shake well, stir, garnish with a slice of lemon…mmm! You can be as creative as you like with tea!
