Refreshing Iced Sencha Green Tea
- 2 teaspoons of loose-leaf Sencha green tea (organic) or 2 Sencha green tea bags
- 2 cups of filtered water
- Sweetener of your choice (e.g., rice syrup, honey, agave syrup...), optional
- Lemon slices or mint leaves for garnish, optional
- Ice cubes
1. Boil Water: Heat the filtered water in a kettle or pot until it reaches about 175°F (80°C), which is the ideal temperature for brewing Sencha green tea. If you don't have a thermometer, you can bring the water to a gentle boil and then let it cool for a minute or two before using.
2. Measure Tea: Place the loose-leaf Sencha green tea in a tea infuser or tea bag. If you're using a teapot, add the tea directly to the teapot.
3. Brew Tea: Pour the hot water over the tea leaves in a teapot, or place the tea infuser/tea bag in a cup or teapot. Let the tea steep for about 2-3 minutes. Avoid over-steeping, as Sencha green tea can become bitter if steeped for too long.
4. Remove Tea Leaves: Once the tea has finished steeping, remove the tea leaves or tea bag to prevent over-brewing.
5. Sweeten (Optional): If you prefer your iced tea sweetened, add your chosen sweetener while the tea is still warm. Start with a small amount and adjust to taste. Stir until the sweetener is fully dissolved.
6. Chill: Allow the brewed tea to cool down to room temperature. You can speed up the cooling process by placing the tea in the refrigerator for about 30 minutes.
7. Prepare Iced Tea: Fill a glass with ice cubes. Pour the cooled Sencha green tea over the ice, leaving some space at the top of the glass.
8. Garnish: If desired, add lemon slices or a sprig of fresh mint to the glass for added flavor and visual appeal.
9. Serve and Enjoy: Stir the tea gently with a long spoon to mix in the flavors. Your Iced Sencha Green Organic Tea is now ready to be enjoyed! Sip and savor the refreshing and delicate flavors of the green tea.
Feel free to adjust the strength of the tea, sweetness, and garnishes to suit your personal taste preferences. Enjoy your homemade iced tea on a hot day or whenever you need a rejuvenating beverage!
