Iced green tea recipe is a refreshing and revitalising drink recipe that keeps you cool and hydrated on hot summer days.
What is cold brewed Green Tea
As the name suggests, cold brewing means tea brewed with cold water instead of hot water. Cold brewing is a process of gentle steeping that takes longer than hot tea which gets ready in less than 5 minutes. Even though cold brew takes longer, it’s worth waiting for its smooth and sweet taste. Unlike hot green tea, cold brewed green tea doesn’t turn bitter the longer you steep. You can let the tea steep with this method overnight, so you can drink the refreshing tea in the morning.
