Here are the answers to some FAQs.
FAQ: What is Dorje Cold Brew Tea? It is not the same as Iced Tea?
Answer: Definitely not, the comparative table below will help you understand it better.
Dorje Cold Brew Tea
No hot water required. Tea leaves are steeped in room temperature or cold water.
Made by steeping tea leaves in hot water.
The tea is then cooled, chilled and served over ice.
The tea leaves get caramelized and taste sweet. No sugar is required.
Sugar is added to sweeten the tea.
A cold brew tea is smooth, delicate, naturally sweet and flavourful. Since there is no heat involved in the cold brew method, the chemical process changes and the output tea is sweeter and more refreshing.
When the leaves are brewed in hot water (as is done in the first step of making iced tea), the heat helps in extracting flavours from the tea, but it also releases tanins which lends a bitterness to the tea
FAQ: How exactly should I make the Dorje Cold Brew Tea?
Answer: To make the Dorje Cold Brew Tea, you need a few things, which won’t sound much different than what you require for your standard hot steep. You will need:
- Dorje Cold Brew Tea
- Something to steep the tea in (pot, jar, dedicated iced tea maker, steel tumbler)
- A strainer
- Cold Water
To start, you will typically want to use a little more tea for a cold steep tea than you would for a hot steep. A general rule would be to use 4-8 teaspoons of tea to the litre of water, Be sure to use cold water for this!
Place your tea in the container just make sure that there is enough room for the tea to swirl around and release their flavors and anti-oxidants.
Add cold water to the container right up to the top. Cover the container and place it in the fridge for 8-12 hours.
Once the tea is removed from the fridge, either strain the tea or remove the existing strainer, serve, and enjoy your first cold steep!
FAQ: Is the Dorje Cold Brew Tea healthy?
Answer - Tasty and healthy, Dorje Cold Brew Tea is truly for the Millenials.
- Less Tannins
Cold-brew tea is a lot smoother because the flavor is slowly extracted over several hours. People that try cold brew tea say that it brings out flavors that they had never tasted before when they brewed it with hot water. In addition to a smoother flavor, fewer tannins may also help you absorb more iron from food.
- Reduced Caffeine
If you are trying to reduce your caffeine intake, the cold brew method is for you! Cold-brew tea contains much less caffeine than hot tea while maintaining higher amounts of vitamin C.
- Sugar Free
If you are trying to avoid sugar and calories, cold brew tea is a better option. The cold brew method produces a sweeter flavor, so it doesn’t require the addition of sweeteners.
4. Keeps you Hydrated
Cold-brew tea is a great way to keep hydrated, especially on hot summer days. You can actually drink it as a replacement for cold water without having to worry about negative effects.
