1 tsp. tea leaves for every 8 ounce pitcher capacity
Tap or filtered water
Determine the number of ounces in your glass or pitcher.
Place the tea leaves in the glass or pitcher.
Fill the glass or pitcher with water and place in the refrigerator.
You can steep the tea overnight. It can be ready sooner: 3-4 hours for green, white and lightly oxidated oolong tea and 5-6 hours for black or darkly oxidated oolong tea or herbal.
NOTE: Since there is no heat involved in cold brewing the flavour is smoother, more delicate, and often sweeter.
