Add 1 TBSP of flavorful, high-quality, loose leaf tea per 8 oz of water.
Leave to steep in your refrigerator 6-8 hours for Green + White Teas, 8-12 hours for Black + Oolong Teas, and 18-24 hours for coarse ground coffee.
Strain the loose leaves from the brewed tea (HINT: Try Our BRUW Filter for the cleanest, easiest, filtering experience).
This preservative-free cold brew will keep for up to five days in your refrigerator.
DOS + DON'TS
DON'T use hot water for cold brew. Hot water will extract too many tannins, creating a bitter brew.
DON'T over-steep. The longer you steep, the stronger your brew can be. However, over-steeping Green + White teas can cause the same tannin effect as above, resulting in a bitter brew.
DON'T use bagged teas for cold brew. You need 4-5 tea bags per 32 oz mason jar, which produces unnecessary waste and adds a significant cost to your home brew. Loose tea is best for the cold brewing process.
DO choose cold brew specific blends. Most tea makers create cold brew blends using flavor notes and ingredients that taste best cold.
DO purchase our patented, reusable, BRUW filter for the easiest, cleanest, + healthiest way to make cold brew at home.
WHY COLD BREW?
Using cold water, instead of hot, extracts more flavors, but slower, over time resulting in a less bitter, cleaner cuppa.
Unlike pre-bottled iced tea, our cold brew has no added sugar, no preservatives, and no artificial ANYTHING.
Loose-leaf teas contain, on average, 37% more for the same cost as bagged teas!
Cut your compost time by 90% by ditching the tea bag. Our patented BRUW filter is endlessly reusable.
