To prepare a batch of iced tea using organic loose leaf white tea:

  • Measure the Tea: Use no more than 1 teaspoon of loose leaf white tea per cup of iced tea. If you’re preparing a pitcher, use around 8 teaspoons of loose leaf tea for 8 cups of water.
  • Boil the Water: The recommended temperature of water for white tea is around 195°F (90°C). 
  • Steep the Tea: Gently pour the hot water over the tea leaves and steep for no longer than 5-7 minutes. Remember that the longer you steep, the stronger the liquor will be.
  • Cool and Chill the Tea: Let the tea cool to room temperature and refrigerate it for at least 4 hours or overnight to chill. We recommend conducting the whole process before bed so that you can wake up to a refreshing batch of iced tea in the morning. 
  • Strain: Strain the tea leaves and pour the chilled tea over to a container or glass. You can add ice to your liking. You can also add sweeteners to taste, such as sugar or honey. We also recommend trying our Yacon Syrup ad a healthy sweetener alternative. With its family of prebiotics (Fructo-oligosaccharides) you will sweeten your refreshing organic loose leaf white tea while improving your gut health.
