How to Cold Brew Oolong Tea

Can we propose a springtime equation? (Stay with us for a minute here.)

The Chillaxer + Your Favorite Scented Oolong = Springtime Bliss.

That’s right: It’s getting downright balmy out there, and all that sunshine and honeysuckle puts us in the mood for some delicious cold-brewed oolong. With the weather getting nicer, we thought it was the perfect time for a refresher on what makes cold brewing so, well, refreshing.

Cold brewing is an excellent preparation method for warmer weather, since it doesn’t require any heat.

Here’s how you do it:

1. Take one of Tea Ave’s prepared tea bags (3g) or prepare your own and place it in a cold brew bottle such as The Chillaxer filled with 500ml of filtered or spring water.

2. Put the bottle in the fridge for up to 8 hours (exact timing depends on personal preference, but we find 6 to 8 hours works best; we don’t recommend brewing for more than 8 hours).

3. Remove tea bag.

4. Enjoy your yummy tea!

Cold brewing allows teas to retain a high percent of the catechins that many oolong drinkers seek for their health benefits. Which means it’s good for you in addition to being convenient and delicious (think of it as a win-win-win).
