Loose leaf tea (our teas)
Filtered water


Glass pitcher and/or jar (we use a big mason jar for the brewing, then strain into a glass pitcher)
Mesh strainer or cloth


Pick any tea you’d like to try iced: Black, green, white, oolong, herbal, anything you want! We used Black Lemonade for this recipe, but our other favourites are:

Mix loose leaf tea with filtered water in a 1:4 ratio in glass pitcher or jar.

Leave on counter overnight, or for 6 to 8 hours.

Strain through a mesh strainer or cloth into glass storage jar or pitcher.

This will leave you with a concentrate that will keep for a couple weeks in your refrigerator. You can make a pitcher or a glass at a time by diluting one part concentrate to two parts water (adjust ratio to taste). Add ice and a slice of lemon (optional). If you prefer a sweet tea, you can add a shot of simple syrup/maple syrup/cane sugar/honey after diluting. Fresh mint or other herbs can also be added before serving. Experiment! Have fun! The possibilities are endless.
