Iced Tea Tips:
The main thing that you are going to want to pay attention to is the type of tea that you are using. While the type of tea is ultimately going to come down to personal preference, the darker the tea, the stronger the taste is going to be. Therefore, you will want to go into it knowing that. That way, you will be able to choose the tea strength you might enjoy. Some like standard tea, others want cold brew, while there are those who like iced green tea. It really is a personal preference.
2. Tie Bags Together.
When it comes to making the iced tea, one of the best tips that you can implement is to simply tie the bags together with a long piece of string. That way, you do not have to completely fish for each bag when you are looking to remove them.
3. Water Quality.
The quality of water that you use can have a direct affect on the overall taste of your iced tea. Always be sure to use completely filtered water in order to make your batch. That way, you will be able to avoid having the water negatively affect the way that your iced tea ends up tasting.
4. Fresh Fruit
You can flavor your tea with fresh fruit. Some prefer lemon while others like to experiment with strawberries, cherries, or blueberries. Gently mash the fruit and drop the fruit and its juice into the tea to steep along with the tea bags.
By following all of the tips above, you should be able to brew the best possible iced tea whenever you want it.
