Summer is here with its backyard barbecues, Fourth of July celebrations, lazy days at the beach and picnics in the park. Hopefully, you'll be able to slow down your hectic daily pace to enjoy this short-lived season. Try to get away, even if only for a few moments ... to enjoy lunch outdoors, an evening stroll in the park or to take the family for a weekend of camping. And be sure to have plenty of cool, refreshing Notting Hall iced tea on hand.
Happy sipping, Maureen
COLD BREW VS HOT BREW .... WHICH DO YOU PREFER?

- COLD BREW -
Green, white, black and oolong teas, whether flavoured or unflavoured, are fine to make as cold brewed tea. Avoid
herbal or botanical tisanes, which are not heat processed.

- HOT BREW -
Unlike cold brew, herbal and botanical tisanes are perfect to
make as a hot brew. Of course, green, white, black and oolong teas, flavoured or unflavoured, couldn't be better.


1. Fill your container with fresh, cold water - allowing 8 ounces of water for every teaspoon of tea.

2. Use 1 heaping teaspoon of tea leaves for every 8oz. of cold water into a large container. To make 8 cups of iced tea, you need 8 rounded teaspoons of dry tea leaf (10 cups – 10 tsps, etc.) Cold brew requires a bit more tea than hot brewing.

3. Use an infuser or put the tea directly into the container you will steep the tea in, or put the tea into a large infuser, keeping in mind the tea will swell up to three to four times its size.

4. Cover and put into the refrigerator. Allow the tea to sit in the refrigerator for at least ten hours or preferably overnight.

5. If you had put the tea leaves directly into the water, use a strainer, coffee filter or cheese cloth over the opening of your serving pitcher and pour the tea through the strainer to catch the tea leaves. If you used an infuser, simply remove it.

6. Add sugar, agave or honey to taste. Pour over ice and serve.

1. Fill the kettle or saucepan with enough water for the amount of tea you want to make. Bring to a boil.

2. Use 1 rounded teaspoon of tea leaves for every 8oz. of water and put into a large container. To make 8 cups of iced tea, you need 8 rounded teaspoons of dry tea leaf (10 cups – 10 tsps, etc.)

3. Use an infuser or put the tea directly into the container you will be steeping the tea in, keeping in mind the tea will swell up to three to four times its size.

4. Pour the boiling water (for black and herbals - cooler for green and white teas) for the amount you are making into the container. Let steep (5 minutes for black teas and herbals - 2 to 3 minutes for green or white).

5. Sweeten while hot, using sugar, agave or honey to taste.

6. If you had put the tea leaves directly into the water, use a strainer, coffee filter or cheese cloth over the opening of your serving pitcher and pour the tea through the strainer to catch the tea leaves. If you used an infuser, simply remove it. Pour over ice and serve.

We make iced tea using both the cold brew and hot brew methods. Our findings are the flavour of cold brew tea
will be lighter, more delicate with shaper fruity or floral notes. The cold brew tea will be less cloudy than hot brewed. The hot brew will be deeper, more flavourful than cold brewed, with a bit more astringency. Clouding may appear, but will not affect the taste.

The cost for steeping your own iced tea ...... pennies!!!

TEA INFUSERS
We use .... reusable bags. So easy!
For steeping large quantities of tea (especially iced tea), you'll love these reusable muslin fabric tea bags. Perfect for cold brewing.

Simply measure in the amount of tea you need, pull the string tightly and drop into the pot. Making a LARGE amount, use two bags. To clean, simply empty and rinse under a faucet. Package of 5, reusable.


Draw String Tea Bags
Package of 5 reusable bags, only $6.95

TEA of the MONTH
It's July .... and it's hot!

So be sure to have plenty of iced tea on hand to cool and refresh. This blend is one of our personal favourites to enjoy over ice. The sweetness of tropical papaya, mangoes and guava with Ceylon black tea creates a medium-bodied brew with a fragrant bouquet, golden colour and fruity taste. We sweeten ours (while its still hot) with agave syrup. What do you use?

- JULY IS BLUEBERRY SEASON -
 
The availability of sweet, ripe berries are some of the best things about summertime. Antioxidant-rich berries are not only delicious, they are high in fiber, vitamin C, calcium and ellagic acid (a cancer-preventing compound). Last month we celebrated strawberry season, this month we are honoring the blueberry. Enjoy these ripe, rich flavourful berries in your cup, hot or iced . . .

It's the Berries - A blend of Ceylon and China black leaves jam-packed with very berry goodness. Rich, sweet and fragrant, this blend is to be enjoyed all summer long, hot or iced.

Fruits of Summer - Picked at the height of their natural sweetness, this blend of black leaves with plump strawberries, rich, red raspberries, and our favourite, blueberries, is sure to please.

Berry Blast - This caffeine-free blend of Rooibos with rich, flavourful berries, hibiscus, rose hips and rose petals for an infusion that is naturally-sweet, fruity and delicious.
