Method 1: Hot Brew Method

This is the traditional method for making iced tea, where you brew a hot infusion that is then cooled.

  1. Select your tea: Choose your favorite Ekön Tea blend.
  2. Boil the water: For black tea, boil the water to 95°C (203°F); for green tea, 80°C (176°F).
  3. Steep: Add the tea bags or loose leaves to the hot water. Let it steep for 3 to 5 minutes.
  4. Sweeten: If you prefer, add sweetener while the tea is hot.
  5. Cool the tea: Let the tea reach room temperature, then transfer it to your Ice Uber Glass Pitcher filled with ice.
  6. Refrigerate: For a more intense flavor, refrigerate the tea for at least an hour before serving.
  7. Serve and enjoy: Pour the tea into a glass with fresh ice from the Ice Uber Glass Pitcher and add your favorite extras.

Method 2: Cold Brew Method

This method is perfect for a smoother, less bitter tea.

  1. Select your tea: Choose your Ekön Tea blend.
  2. Cold water: Fill your Ice Uber Glass Pitcher with cold, filtered water.
  3. Add the tea: Place the tea bags or loose leaves in the pitcher.
  4. Long infusion: Leave the pitcher in the refrigerator for 6 to 12 hours. The longer, the more intense the flavor.
  5. Remove the tea: Take out the tea bags or strain the leaves.
  6. Serve and enjoy: Pour the tea into a glass with fresh ice.

Additional Tips

  • Experiment with flavors: Don’t be afraid to mix different types of Ekön Tea to create your perfect blend.
  • Adjust the intensity: Add more tea leaves or extend the steeping time for a stronger flavor.
