Chilled Teas – When it’s Hot, Serve it Cold
Tea tastes great hot or cold. During the warm summer months, our chilled teas are some of the most popular drinks on the menu. Here’s a quick intro to making your own refreshing chilled teas.

“The quick way”: brew the tea as you normally would, but make it twice as strong by either, a) halving the amount of water you use, or b) doubling the amount of tea leaves you use. Add sweetener if you like, then pour the hot tea over a cup/pitcher full of ice and serve cold.
Black tea is the most common tea to drink cold, but the chilled tea options are endless. Here are a few of our favorites:
Sweet Matcha Shake (called the Soy Matcha Latte at the Tea Lounges)
