The method has been used since the 17th century in Japan and there it came with the Dutch. A few years ago, cold-extracted coffees came to the surface, and now it’s the tea’s turn.
Cold-extracted tea differs from traditional iced tea. Usually cold tea would be made by boiling in hot water and then cooling. This remedy can be quick, but it doesn’t produce the best taste. When tea is heated and cooled, its structure undergoes two abrupt changes. As a result, the taste of the tea becomes sour or even bitter.
Cold-brewed tea tastes sweeter and softer. It lacks the tannininess of too much brewed tea. In addition, cold-extracted tea has less caffeine and still as much antioxidants as the hot version. Cold brew technology ensures subtle extraction of tea.
