Cold Water Brewed Green Tea using Kukicha

July 30, 2014

During the hot summer season cold drinks are more appealing than hot tea. So instead of using hot water, there’s a cooler way to prepare iced tea: cold water brewed green tea using kukicha (stem tea). And out of the kukicha, karigane stem tea is recommended.

Here’s what you need:

  • Kukicha stem tea 30g (yes, this is a lot of tea!)
  • Water 1.5 – 2 L (51 – 68 fl oz)
  • Pitcher/pot
  • Strainer

Adjust the tea and water amount to your taste.

Here’s how:

Tips
Let it sit in the refrigerator for few hours.
The best way is to leave it overnight and the cold tea will be ready in the morning.

(Coffee pot is a perfect size pot to use but if you are a regular coffee drinker, make sure not to use it because the taste and aroma of coffee is strong enough to transfer to the tea.)

Enjoy!!
