Blackberry Sage Oolong!

Most teas are as excellent iced as they are in their hot form. Easy iced tea options include premade pouches for quart or gallon, but also using loose leaf in brew to order method. If you need to make iced two quickly, you can brew it as a concentrate. Simply use half of the required amount of water for the total tea volume you desire but the same amount of leaves as usual. Add hot water and steep as you normally would. Once the recommended time has elapsed remove the leaves, and pour the tea over a pitcher filled with ice to dilute to proper strength. It helps to add sweetener while it is hot to quickly distribute. Add more ice to further chill. Easy peasy, lemon squeezy!
