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.

Delightful and refreshing!
For iced matcha: Add one 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.
These preparation methods will preserve the taste, aroma, color and health-enhancing qualities of the tea.
Iced green tea is refreshing
No special teapot or teaware is necessary. Use any pyrex or heat-resistant glass container.
Make Iced Green Tea with Teabags
When preparing hot green tea you will get best results if you do not move the bag back and forth. Let the bag soak motionless in a cup of hot (not boiling) water for 2 minutes.
This changes when you prepare iced green tea. To prepare iced tea with any of our teabags-
1. Pour 500 cc (16 ounces) of room temperature water into a container.
2. Add the teabag. Move it back and forth several times.
3. After 15 seconds or so of moving the teabag back and forth place the containter in the refrigerator. Leave the bag inside.
4. Chill for 1-2 hours. Take the container out of the refrigerator, remove the teabag, then pour yourself the finest cold tea you can make with a teabag!
Iced green tea tastes great as a morning pick-me-up or after any form of exercise!
