Is Cold Brew Your Cup Of Tea?

Cold brew,
Brings out the best in your tea and you!

The origins of cold brew tea can be traced back to Japan. In India, while hot tea is a popular choice, cold brew tea is slowly gaining prominence. While some may mistake this for iced tea, there is a distinct difference between the two. Traditional iced tea is made by steeping tea leaves in hot water whereas cold brew tea is made by steeping tea leaves in cold (not icy) water.

Follow the steps listed below to create your own delicious cold brew with the right tea-ware accessories. You will wonder why you hadn’t tried it earlier!

Hot vs cold brew tea

For all the tea lovers out there, there is nothing like a hot cup of tea in the morning. Regular tea involves dropping tea leaves in boiling water for a few minutes, whereas tea leaves are steeped in cold water for hours to create the perfect cold brew. Cold-brewing draws fewer tannins into the tea and has half to two-thirds less caffeine compared to its hot brewed counterpart. In addition to keeping the flavours sweet and mellow, cold brewing also packs your cup of tea with anti-oxidants that benefit your skin and make it glow. Cold brew tea is time efficient and lasts for days.

Preparing your brew

Incredibly simple to prepare, fill a quarter of the metal mesh of The Brewmaster with loose tea leaves and three quarters of the teapot with room temperature or cold water. Soak your favourite tea leaves in cold water for at least 6-8 hours, if not longer. This will ensure that full bodied flavours from the tea leaves are slowly drawn out resulting in a sublime, smooth taste. The Brewmaster presents itself as the perfect piece of premium tea-ware for your cold brew preparations.

Steeped in flavour

From Darjeeling to white, select your favourite tea flavour. Oolong tea works best for a cold brew. Its sweet, fragrant flavour gets accentuated and will make your taste buds tingle with joy. Japanese green tea is another great choice for cold brewing. If you’re a fan of black tea, Darjeeling will give you the sweetest aroma and flavour. Whatever variety of tea you use, make sure to use whole leaf teas to absorb all the goodness.

Cold brew tea parties are quite en vogue these days. It’s only expected of a discerning host like you to upgrade your collection of fine teas and bring out the unique taste of your premium pekoes using the right tea-ware. You and your smorgasbord on the patio during a carefree weekend, combined with exotic blends and custom brews are sure to make you the talk of the town!
