Iced Green Tea Preparation

Iced Netto Gyokuro

Recommended Teas

Iced green tea makes a refreshing and invigorating beverage during the summer months. It is delicious as a morning pick-me-up or after any form of aerobic exercise.

Water quality is important, it is best to use purified water to prepare iced green tea.

Use a pyrex or heat resistant glass container (a spare pyrex coffee container will work just fine).

To make iced tea with a teabag

Pour 500cc (16 ounces) of room temperature water into the container. Iced green tea makes a refreshing and invigorating beverage during the summer months. It is delicious as a morning pick-me-up or after any form of aerobic exercise.

Add the teabag. Move it back and forth slowly several times. Please note that you move the teabag back and forth, unlike preparing hot tea.

After 15 seconds or so of moving the teabag back and forth place the container in the refrigerator. Leave the teabag inside.

Chill for one hour. Take the container out of the refrigerator, remove the teabag, then pour yourself a glass of the finest iced green tea you can make with a bag!

You can also make iced tea with loose tea leaves. Iced Netto Gyokuro and Netto Sencha are wonderful!

How to prepare iced tea with loose tea leaves


Pour hot water over double the amount you would usually use for hot tea. After the tea has steeped for about 2 minutes put ice into the container until it is full. Most of the ice will melt almost immediately and dilute the tea to its ideal level. After approximately 3 minutes you can pour over ice and serve.

Some customers like to pour it over a tea net to trap all of the loose leaves. Some don't. It is delicious both ways. If the container you use doesn't have a lid that traps most of the leaves then you should use a net.

Iced Matcha


For iced matcha: Add 1 teaspoon of Matcha to 6 ounces of hot water and whisk with the bamboo whisk to make a small amount of thick green tea. Pour into a glass filled with ice cubes.

Preparing iced tea via these methods will preserve the taste, aroma, color and health-enhcancing qualities of the tea.
