Heads up! We’re working hard to be accurate – but these are unusual times, so please always check before heading out.
Iced teas are great for beating the heat but if, like us, you’re sick of having your drink diluted by melting ice, then try sipping on a cold brew instead. Made by steeping tea leaves at or below room temperature for several hours, cold brew teas take a lot longer to prepare compared to their hot counterparts, but the resulting flavours are sweeter and softer, with a lower level of bitter astringency. Brewing at low temperatures also reportedly leads to greater health benefits and lower levels of caffeine in the cup. If you’re looking for a way to cool down this summer, here are six cold brew teas that are well worth trying.
