After a few minutes, filter and collect the solution that you will let cool to room temperature, then put it in the fridge for about an hour.

For a light iced tea

If you want a light cold tea, it's simple: add your tea to water at room temperature. The longer you let the tea steep, the more it will release its aroma. In general, you can recover the solution after 2 to 6 hours, or even leave it in the fridge overnight. Then strain the mixture and cool your tea by adding ice cubes. For the final touch, add a mint leaf or a piece of lemon. Good tasting !
