Iced Dandelion Chai Brew

Posted by Lorna Macchia on

After a few months perfecting our cold drip coffee in the Mizu tower, we thought it might be interesting to try some other cold drip brews and were pleasantly surprised to find that ground roast dandelion root also produces a richly flavoured drop when used in the Mizu for a slow overnight ‘brewing’. We quite often use decaf coffee beans, and this offers another low caffeine/caffeine free option for those who are caffeine sensitive.

You can use cold drip dandelion to make a warm brew, but I’m loving the richness of this iced chai brew with a dash of raw honey to offset the slightly bitter taste.
