Ingredients for 1 litre of cold tea
- Your favourite tea
- 1 litre cold water
The quantity and infusion time vary according to the type of tea. You will find precise preparation instructions for each of our teas under its heading on our website.
Add the quantity of tea to 1 litre of cold water and leave to infuse for the time indicated.
For example, for Imperial Ginger green tea, we recommend 2 tablespoons per litre of cold water and a brewing time of 2 hours.
If you are making a cold tea with fresh herbs, put the equivalent of a good handful of leaves without the stems (as they are bitter) in 1 litre of cold water and leave to infuse for around 5 hours.
Always infuse in cold water, at room temperature or in the fridge.
The flavour obtained with this method will be better than with a hot, cooled infusion! Indeed, as it cools, the tea oxidises, takes on a dark colour and becomes bitter. With a cold infusion, on the other hand, the colour remains beautiful and the infusion is light and very refreshing!
Once the infusion time has elapsed, strain the tea through a small sieve. There's no need to sweeten it.
We recommend that you drink your tea cold within 24 hours.
It is also possible to produce instant cold tea using another method.
