  • 4 cups water
  • 3 tablespoons corn tea or 1 corn tea bag


  • Combine water and corn kernels in a kettle.
    Filtered water will make a better tasting corn tea than tap water.
  • Bring to a boil then simmer for 10 minutes.
    Brewing it for longer will result in a darker color and more pronounced taste.
  • Strain kernels and pour hot tea into a teacup.


1. Put corn tea bag and cool or room temperature water in a pitcher or glass container.
Use filtered water for a better tasting tea.
2. Cover pitcher and put in the refrigerator for 1 hour.
3. Discard tea bag and pour tea into a cup.
Serve with or without ice.
