Iced tea is a great refreshment when entertaining during the hotsummer months.
Cold brewed iced tea maintains its deep green color.
Green tea brewed in hot water will fade and not retain its green color.
If you brew green tea in chilled or cold water, tea maintains its vivid color.
In a pitcher or large teapot, measure about 7 grams (1 Tablespoon) Fukumushicha tea leaves.
Pour 500 ml of cold water over the tea leaves.
Place pitcher or teapot in the refrigerator overnight to steep and chill.
Convenient cold brewed tea bags are also available.
