In hot tea, the nat­u­rally oc­cur­ring

tan­nins stay sus­pended. When chilled, tan­nins may set­tle out, caus­ing cloudy tea. Here’s how

to avoid that.

Don’t let the wa­ter reach boil­ing temp, which ex­tracts more

tan­nins from tea.

Let your tea stand at room temp be­fore

chill­ing. Cool­ing tea too quickly makes the tan­nins set­tle out.

The fix: Stir a small amount of hot (not boil­ing) wa­ter into

cloudy tea.
