Making tea at home is easy. Put on the kettle with some water, pull down your favorite mug, and pick today's tea. But on the road or out on the trail, making tea can be a bit more difficult. I find that difficulty revolves mostly around getting the water hot. I always seem to ask myself whether bringing a stove, pot and extra water for tea is really worth it on a short trip or when we are not traveling in our van. So I've developed a few tricks to make tea on the trail easy.
All our teas can be brewed as Iced Teas, not just our Refresh Iced Teas. Today we brewed our Jasmine Scented Green Tea Pearls. We loaded 4 cut open pyramid sachets into our pitcher infuser and prepared 170° water. We brewed the tea with the pitcher filled about half way for 15 minutes. To the brew we added a couple tablespoons of Raspberry Simple Syrup (see below for the recipe). Once the tea is brewed, we pulled out the infuser and added ice to fill the pitcher. Enjoy!
