Recipe for cold-brew iced tea

Makes 1 gallon

Although major tea brands now sell larger bags specifically for cold-brewing, a regular tea bag, with powder-fine black leaves, often results in a bitter taste and cloudy liquid. This cold brew technique calls for good quality loose leaves, which you pack into your own bag or pouch. Evy Chen of Tea Cuvee, a cold-brew iced tea company, suggests using green, oolong, or white tea varieties, and purified or filtered water. To begin, the water can be room temperature or cold. The pitcher will be refrigerated to brew the tea.
