The Iced Tea, Ideal Drink for Summer

Renewed, with new flavours and frozen, as a refreshing and natural option against heat, tea replaces soft drinks. visit site

Elevated temperatures are causing us to drink more liquid. It is needed by the body. The dilemma is here. A soda or water with flavours? There are many more options that are also very refreshing, tasty and healthier for getting out of industrial drinks. One of them is iced tea, or iced tea in the Creole language. The benefits of tea are many, emphasising, among other virtues, its antioxidant and diuretic power above all.

What could be better than making a refreshing, healthy and natural beverage? Ice is added to the tea base (all are welcome) and voila! Fruits and sweeteners can be added by those who want something a little more daring, and the blender will do the rest.

The Inside Tea Connection operates as a laboratory for taste. They try the most popular recipes where coconut milk, fruit juice, horchata and various sweeteners are included. We want to separate ourselves from traditional tea. People have tea associated with when they’re sick or what their grandmother used to drink, and that’s not the case! Ice tea consumption is a global trend at the moment. Everything is valid, take it only with ice or mix it with fruits and enjoy it in another way, “says Maggie Bianchi, Inside team. We mix it with super fresh seasonal ingredient ingredients.”

An important fact about this drink is that there is about 70 percent tea in it. It is a sine qua non condition that is hotly infused so that all its properties and flavours are given off by the strands. It has to be cooled once the tea is received. The foundation of the brew will be this. To complete the success, Maggie clarifies that it is necessary to make the tea a little more concentrated than if it were to be consumed at the time, as it will add ice to the preparation, so that its taste is not diluted. Data: one gramme of tea gives flavour to 100 cc of water, but the dose should reach 1.5 grammes if we are going to make iced tea.

While it can be prepared with any variety of tea (it is absolutely a matter of taste), each type of strand has its time and infusion temperature: green tea is prepared with water at 85 ° and left to infuse for two minutes, while the temperature of red and black water rises to 9 ° for red and black water, and the contact time of the strands with water should be four minutes. When we spend time or use water at a higher temperature than indicated, what happens? The tea becomes astringent and gives a feeling of mouth roughness.

This drink is so versatile that at all times of day it can accompany us. Breakfast, lunch, a snack in the afternoon and dinner. A good tip is to make it ready early and leave the jug in the fridge. For 24 hours, it is preserved.
