Cold Brewing Japanese Green Tea
Cold brewed green tea is slightly sweeter than iced green tea.
This brewing technique takes a little time. It provides a wonderful cold green tea and is suitable for the highest grade gyokuro and sencha.
It is not necessary to use a special teapot for preparation. A glass container will work just fine.
Use a ratio of one to two tablespoons of tea leaves per liter of water.
Place the tea leaves in the bottom of a large teapot or container.
Add water, cover the container, and place it in the refrigerator to steep. Let it steep in the refrigerator for about three hours.
Give the pot a gentle horizontal swirl or a stir before you drink it, since leaves may settle at the bottom during brewing.
Cold Brewing Japanese Green Tea (Iced Method)
Cover tea leaves with quality ice from purified water. Let the tea melt at room temperature. It takes about 30 minutes to one hour.
Pour into a teacup or glass over ice. Enjoy a cold and delicious serving of Japanese green tea!
