Cold tea

Inspired by this thread between yhlee and rosefox, I just tried cold-brewing some tea - filled the cup with cold water, put in a teabag, left it for twenty-five minutes, drank it.

Hmmm.

Probably should have left it in the fridge as rosefox recommends, so that it is refreshingly cold and not halfway to room temperature; probably should have left it a bit longer as well; but a pleasant experience none the less and not too dissimilar from what I have bought across the counter as "iced tea" in the US. Here in Belgium, "ice tea" is carbonated, heavily sweetened and often flavoured with peach or lemon. I still prefer it to other soft drinks, but that is not saying much.
