I cold-brewed this overnight as I knew I’d be in a rush this morning. It was nice having something to drink as I got ready all too early for my liking.

This was surprisingly flavourful for being cold brewed. The strawberry was sweeter, and the white tea flavour came through quite strongly. It was alright but I don’t know if I would do this again. I can’t decide how I feel about this tea, but I think it is better hot.

I am curious about how to cold brew overnight??? This sounds like something that would be great for me but need to know how to do it.. could you tell me how you do it?

Sure! It is great because it’s so easy I feel silly explaining my method.

Before I go to bed, I’ve got in the habit of just putting tea leaves in my large Libre tea glass (http://libretea.com/shop-libre/libre-glassn-poly-large/) and pouring drinking water in. Then I leave it in the fridge and drink it when I get up and am too groggy to properly prepare tea.

You can use any kind of brewing container or just any bottle/thermos and strain it, of course. I’ve found herbal teas and honeybush work really well, but I’ve had fun experimenting with greens and this white. It’s usually recommended that you use more tea than you would for hot tea, but I find if I’m leaving it overnight that’s often not even necessary. Also, I’ve read somewhere that caffeine doesn’t get extracted this way which could be good or bad!
