No hot water? Lucky you. We’re happy to announce DAVIDsTEA is the first specialty tea retailer to create a line of deliciously innovative Cold Brew teas that can be safely steeped in cold water – so you get maximum flavour with zero bitterness. That’s because steeping in cold water extracts compounds in different ratios than hot water. The result? Balanced blends that are lively, smooth and full of flavour.
Our new line of cold-steeping teas are one of the quickest cold brews around. Make a pitcher at home in just 1½ hours at room temperature or 2 hours in the fridge. No kettle required!
Cold Brew vs Iced Tea
The biggest difference between Cold brew and iced tea? How they’re steeped. Iced tea is made by steeping the leaves in hot water, then pouring the hot tea over ice. Cold Brew is made by steeping the tea in room temperature or cold water until all the delicious flavour is extracted – usually for a longer period. Now we have two ways to stay seriously cool all season long.
