Cold Infused Jasmine Silver Needle

Cold Infused Jasmine Silver Needle

Your cold infusion will be lighter – you might even call it understated – but if you choose the right tea, it’ll be very aromatic. 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 or aromas to show themselves. If you want to explore some of the more subtle flavours 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, a cold infused version will help with that. Read on for our simple guide on how to make a cold infusion from tea.

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

What is Cold Infused Tea?

It’s the method of making tea that uses time instead of heat to extract flavour from tea leaves. It’s as simple as adding cold water to your tea leaves and leaving them in the fridge for two to eight hours.

When To Drink Cold Infused Tea

It’s perfect on a hot day – when you want a cool, light and refreshing drink. With it’s naturally sweet and aromatic character cold infused tea makes a great alternative to soft drinks. With a cold infused tea you’ll get only water and tea leaves – no sugar needed. If you want maximum natural sweetness and refreshment, try cold infusing our Pineapple and Chamomile Herbal Infusion or Jasmine Silver Needle White Tea.

The complexity of flavours that certain teas offer make cold infusions a satisfying aperitif. If you want surprise, intrigue and complexity try our Wuyi Oolong or Yunnan Gold.

Is Cold Infused Tea Good For You?

Like all cups of tea, your cold infusion will be hydrating – it’s made up of mostly water afterall.

When you’re using high quality whole tea leaves to make your drink it’ll be completely natural too – nothing artificial added and there’s no need to add sugar.
