#BuroLive Episode 18: How to make killer cold-brewed tea

Tea for two

You have to try really hard to mess this up

White tea must be steeped for 3 to 5 minutes at 80 degrees Celcius while green tea is best brewed for 3 to 4 minutes in water that's tuned to 75 degrees Celcius. Sounds pretty complicated? It is. Failing to brew hot tea correctly will result in burnt tea leaves and a sad, astringent cup that's not much fun to drink. However, with cold-brewed teas — the process is a lot more forgiving. You simply let good quality tea leaves (here's a guide to selecting them) steep in room-temperature water for six hours and you'll have yourself a smooth, refreshing beverage to savour. The colder temperature of the water means that you won't steep out the tannins in the tea leaves the same way hot water does, hence resulting in tea that's less astringent and less caffeinated. In this episode, Julie Wang, certified tea master and training director of Australian Tea Masters in Singapore, shows us how to do just that.
