Place 7 tbsps of your choice of loose-leaf tea in a half-gallon sized pitcher
You can either use a pitcher with a strainer, or strain the tea leaves after the tea is brewed
Pour filtered water over the tea leaves, until all the leaves are submerged and the pitcher is full. Filtered water allows for a better water quality, and thus leads to enhanced tasting notes for the tea.
Place the pitcher in the fridge, and let it sit overnight
Strain the tea leaves from the pitcher
Serve over ice!
Cold brewing tea is a super easy way to get a chilled cup of brewed tea first thing in the morning, and allows for a smoother flavor to be infused into the water.
Teas that work best for this are: black teas, green teas, and certain herbal teas
