Do you like iced tea? I’m a big fan, and this Rishi Tea is my absolute favorite!
I like to keep a pitcher in my fridge, especially in the summer time.
I buy the Rishi at Whole Foods and it is on the expensive side. So I was thrilled when I got a lesson in iced tea making with loose leaf tea during my recent trip to Geneva.
The first thing that I needed was a tea sack. These bags are easy to use, clean, and then use again, and because they are reusable they are cost efficient.
Just follow the these 8 steps and a pitcher of cool, refreshing iced tea will be chilling in your fridge just in time for Mother’s Day brunch.
1. Fill your bag with about 2 ounces of tea leaves
2. Tie your bag tight (but not too tight that you won’t be able to undo it) and place your bag in a pitcher
3. Fill your pitcher about halfway with boiling water.
4. Let steep for at least 10 minutes.
5. Fill the rest of your pitcher with cold water.
6. Place your pitcher in the refrigerator (overnight is best) leaving the tea bag inside.
7. Serve over ice.
8. Rinse out your bag (turn it inside out) and return to step 1!
