Step 1: Add Tea Leaves
The proportions for tea and water vary based on what type of tea and what format (whether loose leaf, teabags, or powdered tea) you’re planning to use.
For tea leaves, you’ll need 2 Tbsp of CHINA GREEN TEA leaves for a 750ml bottle and 1 Tbsp for a 300ml bottle.
If adding matcha to the mix of tea leaves, use1 tsp for a 750ml bottle.
For matcha blends like our Lemon Matcha and Hibiscus Matcha, use 1 Tbsp for a 750ml bottle (1 tsp for every 8 oz. of water).
For teabags, the proportions vary based on the type of tea you’re using. You can check the quick guide below.
Step 2: Add Water and Ice
Fill your container or bottle with room-temperature or cold water.
If you’re brewing on-the-go, fill ¾ of the container with ice, then fill up the remaining with water.
If you’re willing to wait, fill all the way with cold or room-temperature water and then let brew in the refrigerator.
Step 3: Swirl and Steep
Once the tea leaves and water are in the bottle, put the cap on, then lightly swirl or shake to stir up the leaves.
For quick brewing with Japanese green teas, you only need to wait around 15 minutes before serving (matcha cold brews are ready instantly). When your tea is ready, turn the bottle upside down a couple of times before serving to get the full flavor.
You can also leave your tea in the fridge overnight to enjoy it the next morning. Cold-brewed tea stays fresh for up to three days in the fridge. Additionally, cold-brewed tea can be enjoyed with fruits or mint to create your own cold brew green tea infusions.
Note: Steeping times vary for different varieties, so there’s no standard on how to cold brew all green tea varieties. Fukamushi Sencha requires as little as five minutes, while Hojicha may need up to an hour to fully steep.
