Iced Japanese Green Tea
Iced Green Tea Preparation
Pour hot water over double the amount of leaves 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, you should use a net.
