4 Perfect Cold Brews

Our expert tea tasters have concoted the four perfect cold brews for you to try this summer season! 

With cold brew's rise in popularity, the drinks make great alternatives to juices or energy drinks, which contain copious amounts of sugar. Luckily for you, our cold brews are 100% natural with only water and the tea leaves in each cup. Plus, they are seriously refreshing and ideal for pairing with snacks, salads and summer meals!

We understand juggling work and family life doesn't always leave you much time to indulge in a good cuppa, and that's why we have created these easy recipes for you to follow. Quick, simple and no fuss but still with the great quality and taste of loose leaf from The Tea Makers. 

 

Japanese Sencha Cold Brew

Our 24-hour Sencha cold brew makes for the perfect aperitif or palate cleanser after an evening meal. Alternatively a good drink to enjoy at any time of the day. May we recommend you try this brew after a fish dinner, to really savour the freshness of the Sencha leaves. Its subtle green liquor and thirst-quenching properties create a delicious drink that you will not want to put down.

What you'll need:

Method, for 2-3 cups

1) Measure 10g of loose leaf Japanese Sencha in a tea scoop/spoon.

2) Pour 800ml of tap water into the teapot.

3) Leave to brew for 24 hours, for a fuller flavour. Can also leave for 12/6 hours.

4Pour into your glass cup and enjoy the chilled sweet, grassy tones Sencha has to offer.

 

Supreme Oriental Beauty Cold Brew

This premium cold tea tastes best after sitting in the fridge for 12 hours (overnight). This brew adds that special touch of class to your home afternoon teas and works particularly nicely with sweet treats or canapes!

Your taste buds are met with an initial nuttiness and then cleansed with subtle apricot/fruity tones. A delicately mellow delight that we know you will enjoy.

What you'll need:

Method, for 2-3 cups

1) Measure 10g of loose leaf Supreme Oriental Beauty in a tea scoop/spoon.

2) Pour 800ml of tap water into the teapot.

Organic Dragon Well Cold Brew

Yunnan (Dian Hong) Cold Brew

For your next picnic, why not fill your flask with our delightful popular, speciality Chinese tea, Yunnan Dian Hong Black Tea. We have found the wholesome and rich caramel flavour of Dian Hong is really distinguished after settling in the fridge for 18 hours, or more. A refreshing and indulgent brew, with notes of natural cocoa!
