Don't have the time (or ice!) to make a proper iced tea? Cold brewing is an amazing alternative. But instead of cold-brewing tea leaves or tea bags overnight, there are blends crafted to make this entire process incredibly easy and super fast. With the Pomegranate Blueberry tea from Basilur Cold Brew blends line, you can have a delicious iced tea in a matter of minutes.
What are cold brew blends?
If you ever tried steeping regular tea bag or tea leaves cold water, you may have noticed that the results were pretty mild, and often not quite as tasty as when steeped in hot water. Cold brew blends are still pretty much a novelty. In the last couple of years, many big tea producers introduced their own cold brew tea lines, and many of them are available in supermarkets as well. These blends were crafted to give the maximum flavour when steeped in cold water for only a few minutes. With special cold brew teas you don't need to have a kettle, you don't need to use hot water, and you don't need to steep it overnight. They are also not an instant teas, as they won't dissolve, but they will give you an instant cold tea.
What's in the Pomegranate Blueberry tea?
Pomegranate Blueberry tea is a fruity tea blend from Basilur Cold Brew line with 5 more interesting flavours: Cherry Lime, Strawberry Cucumber Mint, Coconut Pineapple, Orange Mango and Guava Passionfruit. All of them are caffeine free, which makes them suitable for any time of the day.
Pomegranate Blueberry tea contains hibiscus, pomegranate, orange leaf, calorie-free stevia and blueberry and pomegranate flavourings. It doesn't contain any other sweeteners. This blend has a delicious, fruity, sweet and refreshing scent. It's one of those teas you are really excited to brew immediately after opening the box.
How to make this tea?
To make cold brew teas, you need a glass of cold water only. You don't need a kettle, any electricity or any special utensils. Cold brew teas are great for travelling, as you can make them literally anywhere and they are always available as tea bags only.
Use a regular glass or a smaller glass if you prefer a more intense flavour. Use approximately 200-300 ml of cold water, and steep for 5-7 minutes, or longer if you like.
This is a very refreshing fruity tea with a very distinctive sweetness. Blueberry notes are incorporated with pomegranate notes and hibiscus gives lots of depth. Hibiscus is the main ingredients, but it's not the main flavour note. Instead, as a background note it serves to carry other flavours which blend really well: a tart pomegranate note, a light orange note, and lots of fruity juiciness.
Pomegranate Blueberry tea is a very, very easy to drink tea. It's lighter than juice but has a similar mouthfeel to a pomegranate juice. It doesn't need any sweetener at all. You can serve it as it is or with some ice cubes.
If you want to replace sugary drinks with something as refreshing and flavourful, Pomegranate Blueberry cold brew tea is a great option. Furthermore, if you like pomegranate juice and sweet but slightly tart flavours, you will like this tea too. It's more juicer than regular fruit teas and incredibly refreshing. It's one of the best alternatives to sugary drinks and pre-made iced teas.
