By cold brewing your tea, you retain all the antioxidant properties without the additional tannins you get from hot tea. So fill a 24oz.-glass pitcher with filtered water, add 3-4 tsp of loose-leaf tea, put the lid on, give it a good shake, and soak in the fridge for 12 to 14 hours.

It’s not bitter at all -in fact it may be a little sweet and lemony if you use specific herbs like Lemon Verbena, Sage or Greek Mountain Tea, which have an earthy, minty and citrusy taste.
Note: You can re-steep these leaves up to 3 times. Don’t just use them once and throw them away. Also, don’t throw them away at all -compost them!
Do you want an even simpler way to cold brew your loose-leaf tea? You will just need a French press, 24 oz. filtered water, and 3-4 tsp loose-leaf tea! Put it in the refrigerator for 12-14 hours, press down the filter and enjoy!
