Looking for healthier ways to replace sodas, fruit juices and energy drinks full of sugar? This nutritious recipe is hands down the best alternative! Whether you are an occasional tea drinker, or a regular one, you will love this refreshing and hydrating Cold Brew Herbal TeaFirst things first, it all depends on the herbs you use.

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.


Strain, and cheers! It stays fresh and tastes great for days -though I am sure you are going to drink it all in one day, especially during the hot summer days!



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!
