It works! A pinch of baking soda after you pour the water over the tea leaves will take care of cloudy iced tea! Thank you ashmanra!

This one, iced. As satisfying as usual :) Now prettier!

How does the baking soda affect the taste of the tea?

I’m thinking it would change the taste of the tea …in a bad way..

Interesting trick!

I couldn’t taste it in mine, but I only put a pinch.

I couldn’t taste it, and my husband couldn’t taste it either. It was the merest pinch, but it worked!

if you cold steep it you will never get cloudy tea either :)

Is it true that if you add lemon to iced tea it doesn’t get cloudy? I thought I heard or read that somewhere.

Bio

I love to cook, bake, read, paint, knit, do needlework, and garden. I need my coffee, but I LOVE my tea. I work at an Art School, and attend a large public university doing post-bac work (my BA is in English). I’m interested in the liminal spaces between art and craft, the academic and the practical, the individual and community, and the old and the new. I’m currently exploring these ideas through the disciplines of education, literature, history, and psychology.

I enjoy writing tasting notes, but have decided not to numerically rate teas as of 9/14/10. For an explanation, see my looooong tasting note about Mountain Malt from the Simple Leaf.

My favorites:
Chinese black teas
A good “milk and sugar” English style black
Earl Grey (classic, and in all variations!)
Vanilla teas (classic, and in all variations!)
Jasmine, Rose, Violet and other froofy, flowery teas!
An Occasional Oolong
Flavored Rooibos
Herbal Tisanes
