Why Cold-Infuse Tea?

As well as the drink being refreshingly cold, infusing your tea with cold water will give you a different concentration of the flavours of the tea compared to when you make it hot. This is because cold water brings out less of the structure – including tannin – from your leaves. Less structure means more space in your drink for the lighter flavours and high notes to show themselves. If you want to explore some of the more subtle flavour in teas, such as easily finding the floral “orchid” flavour in a Phoenix Honey Orchid oolong tea, or getting citrus refreshment from the bergamot in Earl Grey – try it!

We also made a short video tutorial which you can find here.
