Iced Sencha (Method 2)

Iced Sencha Method 2:  Hot Water Over Ice


3 tablespoons (approximately 15 grams) Sencha (or Gyokuro, Houjicha, etc)
Teapot (6-8 ounce)
Ice Cubes (using spring water or filtered water)
6 ounces Boiling Hot Water (using spring water or filtered water)
Cold Water (optional)


Fill the teapot with ice.

Pour tea leaves over the ice.

Pour boiling hot water into the teapot until full.  Steep for 2-4 minutes.

Serve and enjoy!  

You can make additional servings by adding cold water to the teapot.

This method provides the most similar taste to sencha served hot. The aroma is light and green with a fresh green taste and light astringency.  The finish is long, cool and refreshing.
