What is cold brew tea?

Cold brew tea is created using tea leaves and/or herbal infusions steeped using cold water rather than hot. Cold brewing is a fun way to create your own bespoke iced tea infusions by steeping our delicious tea blends and the best bit, it’s so easy to do. You can cold brew our tea blends with any kind of milk, sparkling drinks or alcohol; the list goes on!

Cold brewing originated in the southern states of America, where they would traditionally leave tea leaves in a water bottle out in the sun to slowly infuse. Interestingly, cold brewed iced teas tend to taste a little sweeter and less astringent than those brewed with hot water.

Who says you have to drink tea hot? Our cold brew teas are so tasty and sugar free so are a great way to stay refreshed & hydrated!

It’s an exciting way to enjoy your favourite loose leaf teas in new ways. Cold brewing is easy, fun & makes a great alternative cold beverage when you fancy something cool & refreshing. Happy sipping!

Goodbye...

❌ Boring mocktails
❌ Sickly mixers

This summery drink uses less energy than a hot brew or classic iced tea because you're cutting out the kettle by brewing straight in your cold water. Plus, the Cold Brew Tea Bottle, with built in infuser, is made from tempered glass so is reusable, unlike iced teas which come in single-use plastic bottles. Double win!

I’ve got a few of your fruit teas and usually cold brew them in summer. Poured over ice they make a delicious drink on a hot day

Hello Cat,

We have never tried it in Bird & Blend but would be interested to hear your feedback if you have tried this out. I am sure lots of our Teabirds would appreciate this.

Love B&B

Hello Janis,

Great question! What is great about fruit teas is that they are suitable for both hot and cold teas so you have the best of both worlds.

Happy Brewing!

Are any of your fruit teas suitable for hot drinks? Thank you.

Just curious! Would your cold brew bottles also work for cold-brewing coffee? Really we’d love one bottle to do both since we’d love to enjoy your tea and our favourite coffee bean blend as well in this summer heat.
