Cold Brew Tea Review – Whittard

September 17, 2014Sew White

I love tea. I’m sure you know that and the chance to try any tea I will take. I do love tea.

This summer iced teas have been popular and now there is such a thing as cold brewed tea.
I know what you are thinking. It almost seems slightly sacrilegious to brew tea cold but I do love tea so I gave it go.

Of course cold brew tea takes a lot longer to brew and using this gorgeous filter-in bottle from Whittard I made up some tea and left it over night. The bottle is huge and is lovely in itself. It’s nice to hold and is pretty much water tight but I would be careful if taking it out as it doesn’t screw on but it is pretty tight. I’ve made a full bottle of tea and then decanted it into a smaller bottle to take out which worked very well as the bottle can start it’s cold brewing journey again.

I love that the bottle is called the T filter-in Bottle. If you love tea the initial T will do! It is £20 but I think it’s a good price for what you get and being able to brew over night is really nice. A good buy or present for any tea fan.

To start with I tried the mango and bergamot tea from Whittard for cold brewing. The smell of the tea is stunning and the cornflowers and flecks of yellow and pink added something wonderful to the tea. It was nice to see the colours of the tea instead of them being hidden in a teapot as usual.

Here is the tea in the cold brew bottle before and after adding the water. The colours are stunning.

After a night in the fridge the tea was brewed and was delicious. I did expect a hot drink each time I took a drink. I really loved it. The colour of the tea was a bit green and my friends did ask why I was drinking pond water. Haha very funny. No tea for them.

I’ve found that most teas I have tried have worked very well and I would recommend even trying Earl Grey. Fruit teas and green teas work very well. It’s a nice night time ritual to put the bottle in the fridge to brew up for the morning. I love coming downstairs in the morning to see how the tea looks and tastes. I’m like a child at Christmas every morning now. It’s a nice thing to look forward to when you wake and remember there is something tasty in the fridge ready for you and is good for you.

I’ve been drinking so much extra tea with cold brew tea and my body has loved the extra water. I feel so much better in myself. Thank you magical tea!

I really loved it and I can’t wait to try more teas as a cold brew. I’ve currently got a rose tea brewing.

    I really like this idea. I only drink peppermint tea but I quite like the sound of it cold!

      The cold aspect of it is surprisingly nice and makes the tea really refreshing. I think trying it with peppermint would be nice.

    I too love tea, though I’ve never really tried cold tea I’m a hot tea kind of gal. When I think of cold tea I think of the sweetened type from the states – maybe its time I tried something new.

    Great review.

      I always thought I was a hot tea person but there is something rather nice about cold tea.

    I bought some tea at Foodies Festival recently with this in mind, but haven’t done it yet – must get on to it!
