Rather than using hot water then throwing a bunch of ice over it, I prefer to make iced tea using the easy and effective method of cold brewing.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 ounce loose leaf jasmine green tea (I get mine from
  • 3 liters filtered room temperature water
  • 1 -2 tablespoon raw sugar or 1 -2 tablespoon honey
  • 1 lemon


  1. In a large pitcher combine the tea and water. Mix the sugar or honey with about a cup of hot water so that it dissolves and will mix with the room temperature water. Add the sugar/ hot water mixture to the pitcher. Put the pitcher in the refrigerator (preferably before you go to sleep) and let the tea leaves soak until morning (9-12 hours). Add lemon to taste and then pour the tea through a strainer so as to catch the tea leaves before serving.
