How To Make Iced Tea

There’s no better way to enjoy a hot Summer day than with an iced tea beverage. With just four easy steps, you can brew pitchers of tasty and refreshing teas to enjoy all Summer long.

Making Iced Tea

Making iced tea at home is similar to making hot tea. Follow these simple steps, and you’ll be brewing gourmet iced tea in no time!

1. Select Your Tea

First, select your tea. It is important to double the amount of loose leaf tea used in a hot tea brew. Refer to the iced section of our brewing chart to learn more about specific instructions based on tea type.

2. Heat Water

Heat water to the correct temperature. *If blending more than one tea, apply the lowest temperature.

  • White & Green Tea = 175°F
  • Oolong Tea = 195°F
  • Black Tea = 195-205°F
  • Mate, Rooibos & Herbal = 208°F
  • 3. Steep Tea

    In an iced tea maker, combine loose leaf tea and sweetener if desired. Allow the tea to steep for recommended time. *If preparing a blend, apply the lower steep time to avoid singeing tea leaves.
