Cold steeped tea is easy. There are only two variables to consider: the tea and the tool. Steeping tea leaves in cold water over an extended period avoids bitterness and harsh flavors, resulting in a smoother, sweeter and more delicate tea. The slow infusion allows the tea’s natural flavors to shine, making it a delightful summer thirst quencher. Here are our Six Tea Tools for Cold Steep Tea Success:

1- ForLife Lucent Jug

The Lucent Jug with Capsule Infuser steeps 48 ounces of tea and is our pick for Black and Green Teas. The capsule infuser perfectly steeps the tea and allows for removal of the leaves when the time is right. The unique capsule infuser is large and allows tea to fully bloom. Experience pure flavor by brewing concentrated tea with the capsule infuser and dilute with water and ice. Hand crafted made from heat-resistant borosilicate glass. Silicone foot cover will absorb the impact on hard surface and prevent slip. All the parts are detachable for easy care and cleaning. Check out our recipe for Cold Steeped Yaupon.

2- The Hario Bottle

Cold brew tea just got a whole lot prettier! This champagne bottle shaped infusing bottle steeps up 27 ounces of delicious tea. It is definitely one of our new favorite things. The Hario bottle is perfect for Herbal Teas, White Teas, Oolong Teas and Mate. Because the leaves stay in the bottle, you get continual extraction. After you’ve enjoyed your tea, be sure to re-fill the bottle with water for a second extraction. We love the shape, style and colors of this Hario filter-in-bottle device. It’s beautiful and oh, so practical. The filter is fixed onto the spout to catch the leaves. Easily removes for cleaning. Made from borosilicate glass.

3- ForLife Mist Iced Tea Jug with Basket Infuser

Steep up a big, 68-ounce pitcher of tea with the MIST Iced Tea Jug with Basket Infuser. The Mist’s basket infuser is oversized – perfect for large leaf White Teas or Herbal Teas with lots of flowers and fruit like our Berry Blast Herbal Tea. The Mist Iced Tea Jug is also a great tool for spa water: cucumber, berry or mint – it’s the perfect tool for infusing H2O. The double ring silicone gasket keeps the top firmly in place and the infuser catches even the finest tea for smooth pouring. Simply add hot or cold water to the pitcher after the infuser filled with loose tea, fruit or botanicals has been placed in the pitcher.
