Drinking enough water on a day can be quite a challenge for me, because – let’s be honest about it – drinking water can be a bit boring. Often I spice up my water with some lemon or lime juice, or infuse it overnight with some fresh mint. There was also a time when I was really into drinking cold brewed green tea. Often I drank more than a liter of it per day! Although I try to limit my caffeine intake now, I still really enjoy a nice glass of unsweetened cold brewed tea.
When you cold brew tea, the result is much smoother with less of an edge from tannins, than if you would brew the tea with hot water. If you are normally not so fond of green tea, trying a cold brew once really makes a huge difference. The same goes for this pretty pink Cold Brewed Jamaican Hibiscus Iced Tea. Although herbal teas tend to have less bitterness than normal teas in general, hibiscus tea can sometimes turn out a little bitter too. Cold brewing it definitely gets rid of that completely.
