Not in vain, a famous brand of soft drinks have for years, a product that is selling like cold tea in numerous catering establishments, as well as in small and large commercial surfaces.
Aromas of Tea, most of the times we tend to take hot, no matter the time of year it is. And that is to take the tea hot have all their meaning, mainly, because it is the best way to preserve the properties that we bring the different varieties that are made from the plant Camellia Sinensis, rooibos or with the different medicinal plants, fruits, and other ingredients we use to prepare infusions.
However, drinking cold tea or ice cream also has its advantages. Among other things, that you can cool and hydrate the natural way while, in addition, take care of your health, because it is a completely natural product, at least if you craft with teas and infusions natural, as the ones you can find in our e-commerce.
But, do you serve all the teas and infusions to take ice cream? And if so, how are you preparing? How you can prepare recipes with iced tea? What are the benefits besides the ones listed? To all this I would like to respond to you in the following lines. So if you're interested, stay with us and I'll explain everything.
What teas or infusions can be to take ice cream
One of the most common questions when we talk about to prepare a cold tea or an infusion of iced is whether all of the types serve to do this. In general you could say yes, but, in reality, the teas that are most recommended to take cold or ice creams are the varieties of green tea and white tea, as well as all those herbal teas that have peppermint, ginger, lemon and citrus in general, or red fruits.
Why? Because the flavors of these products are kept perfectly when taken in infusion, cold or frost, unlike other milder flavors, as it may be, for example, the apple if we talk about fruits or tea red, blue, or yellow, if we talk about varieties of tea, unless they contain the products mentioned above.
Benefits of iced tea
As you well know, the iced tea and herbal infusions are not beverages, but also are a source of health and, in particular, the cold tea or ice-cream features the following benefits:
It is stimulating and, therefore, helps us to maintain attention and concentration
It is an antioxidant and purifying, so that it is ideal for people who want a natural complement in your diet, besides contributing to reduce or terminate the retention of liquids.
Helps to increase the resistance, so is ideal as a sports drink for natural athletes, especially in the case of green teas and, in particular, of the varieties of Bancha and Sencha, that have a lot of minerals essential for the human body, such as potassium or magnesium.
Of course, these properties are in addition to the specific ice tea that you are using. In addition and as already discussed above, it is an excellent drink to hydrate effectively and natural, as if we drink teas, ice cream can or bottle, these contain a lot of sugar, so, although initially it may seem that they take away the thirst, soon we will have it.
In the case of infusions and rooibos, the properties will be those that correspond to the of the ingredients that have been prepared.
Differences between tea ice cream or cold and hot tea
As you have seen, like when we took the hot tea, the iced tea or ice cold also has its benefits. In fact, preserves all, and even might add some of that tea ice cream, when taken hot, it is not notice so much or are different.
But, then, what is the big difference? How can it be that it retains all the properties? Isn't it true the rumor that runs on tea or cold ice cream loses its properties? The answers are well, simple.
To begin with, the iced tea or ice cream is made with hot water at the beginning, so that is the answer to why it retains its properties. And no, the rumor that the tea cold lost properties is not true, as you just demonstrate.
But the most interesting of all these questions is the answer to the first, what are the differences between tea or cold ice cream and hot tea. Well, simple, the feeling they give us. If the tea cold is associated with cooling and, in the case of an ice tea with caffeine, to activate, the hot tea, for its part, is more associated to reassure us, to make us warm and relax. In fact, who wouldn't get excited just thinking about how pleasant it is to take a rich, hot tea on a rainy day and cold? Whew! Amazing!
How to prepare iced tea
If you want to prepare your own iced tea or ice cream at home, but do not know how to do this, take note of the following indications:
First: prepare your tea as what would you have done if you were to take hot; that is to say, it heats the amount of water that you need, let it heat up until it reaches the degrees that correspond to the type of tea or infusion that you have used and pour it into the cup or jug that you will use for drinking or serving later and let it sit for the time needed for that is to your liking.
In this first point it is important to keep in mind the steps. The amount of water does not vary, but the tea that you use will be the double. For example, if it is for a cup, instead of a spoon gives a tea or infusion poured two and in the case of the pyramids, the same: in place of a, there are one or two bags
Second: once you've let it settle for the tea the time required you have two options: or you put it in the refrigerator once it is tempered or spades a few ice cubes and serve directly. In the event that you choose for the first option, it leaves, at least, to spend two hours to be well chilled.
And, voila! You see that is very simple. Now, if you'd like, and you like, you can add a slice of lemon if you want to further enhance the flavor and like that of citrus. The same can be done with the mint.
And what about the sugar? As you know, we recommend that you take the iced tea, infusions and coffee without sugar, first, because we only sell quality products and, therefore, its actual flavor worth a try and, for another, because the sugar and then subtract the authentic taste of the infusion that you wish to take, in addition to that it would be less healthy.
Of course, if you want, we always encourage you to be as natural as possible. A good option may be the sticks to sweeten, as it sweeten, but they provide less amount of sugar than if vertiéramos half a tablespoon, or a saccharin, for example.
