Can you use tea bag in cold water?
3 Reasons to Cold Brew Leave the tea bag in too long and it’s bound to get bitter. Take it out too soon and it will taste weak. With cold brewing, you don’t have to worry about timing. Cold water extracts flavors more slowly and naturally so the result is less bitter and more clean than hot tea.
How long should you steep tea in cold water?
The general guide for the tea-to-water ratio is 2 tablespoons of loose leaf tea for every 32 oz of fresh, cold water. Cover and refrigerate, allowing the tea to steep for at least 2 hours, but typically no more than 8-10 hours OR steep for up to 1 hour at room temperature
