Cold Brew: Pure and Simple

Are you a tea purist who wouldn't dream of tainting the delicate flavour of your favourite tea with milk or sugar? Who will only use a teabag under duress? If so, let us introduce you to the joys of cold brew. It's a simple way to create a cool, refreshing version of your favourite loose leaf tea,  which is smooth and mellow and really delivers the true flavour. 

Our cold brew bottle cleverly incorporates a filter, so you can just serve pure cool tea straight from the bottle. 

How to make the perfect cold brew tea:

1) Add 20g of your favourite loose leaf tea - we highly recommend Silver Needle, Mango and Bergamot and Dragonwell Long Jing. NB fruit and herbal infusions are not suitable for use with cold brew.

2) Fill the bottle to the mark with cold water.

3) Add the lid/spout

4) Let the tea brew in the fridge for 3-6 hours

5) Serve and enjoy
