  5. Add 25ml sugar syrup (or vanilla syrup)!

** Cold brewing is such a fabulous way of making tea! It tastes a lot smoother because the flavour is slowly extracted over several hours. For some people when it comes to cold brewing, they say it brings out flavours that they had never noticed before compared to when they brewed it with just hot water! It doesn’t get much easier than dropping loose leaf tea or tea parcels into a cold brew bottle, or a jug of some sort! Then adding your choice of cold liquid such as water or milk (or even gin!) and letting it infuse in the fridge for 2-12 hours. We recommend 6-7 teaspoons of your chosen tea in 750ml of liquid!
