Iced Tea: The Go-To Summer Refreshment

Iced Tea: The Go-To Summer Refreshment

The sun has been shining (yay!)

With summer right around the corner, Bird & Blend HQ have been getting excited about drinking more of our healthy and refreshing iced teas!

Great news guys! Making iced tea at home couldn’t be easier with our simple tips. Here’s how…

First Things First...Choose Your Tea!

All of our teas at Bird & Blend can be made into iced tea so if you already have your fave, just follow the simple steps below. Not sure what vibe to go for? Then check out our recommended cold brew tea and grab some to experiment with until you find your personal favourite! 

1. The Super Speedy Way

  • Add one heaped teaspoon of loose leaf tea to every 200ml of hot water (about half a glass)
  • Steep as per brewing instructions*
  • Once ready pour over a glass loaded with ice. Some ice will melt balancing the tea to the perfect strength

In our stores, and at home, we use an IngenuiTEA brewer - the best, no fuss teapot. You can't get a better loose leaf brewer - in our humble opinion!

*If using green or white teas brew for 3 minutes max and use only 80 degree water.

2. The Easy 'Prepare Ahead' Way

Steep your tea as above, then pop it in the fridge to cool for a few hours.

If it’s a herbal or fruit tea you can even leave the leaves in until ready to serve. Simple! 

3. The ‘Hip’ Cold Brew Way

Use our super stylish and innovative Cold Brew Tea Bottle, with a built in infuser. A very fun way to make your delicious cold brew tea! 

Summer Iced Tea Specials: Pineapple Mint + Simply The Zest, they make the perfect iced teas and are causing a storm in the B&B community.

Add some sparkling water and fresh fruits to a pitcher of iced tea to make it even more refreshing and perfect party drinks.
