  • 1pc of NORDIC MORNING pyramid tea bag (contains freeze-dried blueberries, fermented fireweed, and peppermint)
  • 500ml cold, fresh water


  1. Prepare the Tea:
    • Place one NORDIC MORNING pyramid tea bag into a pitcher or a water bottle
    • Pour 500ml of cold, fresh water over the tea bag

    • Shake it for at least 20 seconds to get the herbs fully activated
  2. Brewing:
    • Place the container preferably in the sun
    • Let the tea steep for at least 8-10 minutes. For a stronger flavor, you can steep it up to 8 hours. Tip: add water throughout the day to the same tea bag, the concentration of herbs is high enough to allow for multiple brews.

    • After steeping, remove the tea bag from the container.
    • Give the tea a gentle stir before serving.

  • Seasonal Fruits:
    • Float fresh blueberries or raspberries in the glass for a burst of color and flavor.
    • Add a slice of citrus fruit, like lemon, lime, or orange, to the rim of the glass.
  • Natural Elements from Meadows:
    • Garnish with a sprig of fresh mint for an aromatic touch.
    • Use edible flowers such as violets or chamomile for a beautiful, natural decoration.
  • Spices:
    • Add a cinnamon stick for a warm, spicy undertone.
    • Include a star anise pod for a hint of licorice flavor and a visually appealing touch.

Serving Ideas:

  • Serve your NORDIC MORNING cold-brew tea in a clear glass pitcher to showcase its natural colors.
  • Present the tea with a wooden serving tray decorated with a few sprigs of fresh herbs and small bowls of garnishes like fresh berries and citrus slices.
