On hot days when a hot cup of tea seems unbearable, we turn to our favorite iced tea recipes.

There are different ways to make cold, refreshing Japanese tea, and we recommend different recipes for different tastes.

This recipe is especially refreshing, and it happens to be one of the most popular among our staff at our Kyoto headquarters.

Its advantage is that you can quickly brew a large batch of iced tea in a few minutes. All you need is ice, your favorite Ippodo (loose leaf) tea, a kyusu, and a large pitcher.

At the office, we use this recipe for tea to serve at meetings. At home, we use it to brew a large pitcher of tea to go with dinner.

How to Prepare

Brew the tea with boiling temperature for a minute, producing a rich, concentrated flavor brew. Then, pour the tea into a small pitcher full of ice. The ice dilutes the tea to the right strength, and quickly cools it off at the same time. The result is an aromatic, flavorful, and refreshing iced tea, brewed up in just a few minutes.

Recipe:
  1. Place 10g (2 tbsp) in kyusu teapot.
  2. Add 210 ml (7 oz) of boiling water.
  3. Brew for 60 sec.
  4. Pour into glass or small pitcher full of ice.
