Summer is here and what better way to enjoy the warm weather than by sipping on a refreshing glass of iced tea? Ceylon tea, in particular, is an ideal choice for crafting delicious iced teas. With the right ingredients and proper preparation, you can make a delicious cup of tea that will quench your thirst and help you beat the heat. Here’s how to prepare quality iced teas with Ceylon teas.

Selecting Quality Ingredients

The first step in preparing quality iced teas with Ceylon teas is selecting the right ingredients. Ideally, you should use only quality organic ingredients. Not only are organic produce tastier, but they’re also more nutrient-dense and contain fewer chemicals and toxins. When it comes to Ceylon tea, look for high-quality tea varieties from Sri Lanka. Mui Té for example, has a great selection of premium grade teas from Sri Lanka. These are high-grade teas that have been handpicked in Sri Lank’s highest elevations for maximum flavour and aroma.

Brewing Your Tea

Once you have selected your ingredients, it’s time to brew your Ceylon tea. To do this properly, start by bringing a pot of water to a boil and then letting it cool slightly (about 80°C). Add 1 tea bag of Ceylon tea per cup of water into the pot and let steep for 3 to 5 minutes depending on strength preference (the longer you steep it, the stronger it will be). Once done brewing, strain off the leaves if necessary and let cool completely before adding other ingredients.

Adding Other Ingredients

Now that your tea has finished brewing, it’s time to add other ingredients such as honey or lemon juice if desired. For an extra refreshing twist on classic sweetened black tea, try adding some freshly cut ginger slices or mint leaves into your brew. (or simply drop them in while steeping for extra flavour). You can also add fruit juices like pineapple or cranberry juice for an even tastier drink!

With these tips in mind, you’ll be able to prepare delicious iced teas with Ceylon teas all summer long! Just remember to select quality organic produce when possible and brew your tea properly so that you get all the health benefits and taste out of every sip! Mui Té's selection of premium teas from Sri Lanka makes a perfect choice – so why not give them a try?
