Blog Entry: As the name implies, cold brewing means the tea is brewed with cold water instead of hot water. One of the main differences between cold and hot brewing is that cold brewing takes quite a bit longer. While a cup of hot tea is ready to drink within five minutes, cold brewed GREEN TEA 3505 must steep for at several hours. While this long brewing time can be annoying if you want to drink your tea right away, you can get around the wait by making a large pot of cold brewed tea before you go to bed and letting it steep overnight. Then, you’ll be able to sip on the finished product throughout the next day. Even though it takes longer to make cold brewed tea, it’s worth the wait. Tea brewed without any heat tastes different from traditional hot tea – it’s sweeter, smoother, and doesn’t have any of the bitter notes that you can sometimes taste in a cup of hot tea. This is because cold water doesn’t extract tannins, the chemical responsible for that astringent taste, from the tea leaves. (Read more about tannin and green tea in my other article) If you like to add sugar to your tea, you might be pleasantly surprised to find that cold brewed tea is already sweet enough on its own. Cold brewed Japanese green tea also offers a couple of distinct health benefits. First, it contains less caffeine than tea brewed with hot water, which is good news if you’re trying to avoid the jitters. Cold water doesn’t extract much caffeine from the leaves, so you can go ahead and drink a cup of cold-brewed green tea before bed because it won’t keep you awake. (Read more about caffeine and green tea in my other article) Second, cold brewed green tea contains more antioxidants than hot tea. According to a video posted by Dr. Michael Greger at NutritionFacts.org, a team of Italian researchers discovered that hot water destroys some of the catechins – the chemicals with antioxidant properties – in tea leaves. Conversely, cold water extracts those catechins without harming them. While any type of green tea is good for you, you’ll get more of its disease-fighting and anti-aging properties by choosing the cold brewed variety. (Read more about anti-aging and green tea in my other article) USING COOL WATER This method of cold brewing is called mizudashi (水だし), and it takes a while to steep - a minimum of three hours is recommended. However, the advantage of this method is that it works well for any grade of green tea. In fact, even cheaper green teas usually taste excellent when they’re brewed with cool water. To make tea with this method, use a ratio of one to two tablespoons of tea leaves per quart of water. For a quick and convenient alternative, you can also use regular green tea bags. Place the tea leaves in the bottom of a large container or kyusu. (A kyūsu (急須) is a traditional Japanese teapot mainly used for brewing green tea.) Then add the water, cover the container, and place it in the refrigerator to steep. When you're ready, give the finished pot a gentle swirl or a stir before you drink it, since the stronger-flavored sediment may settle at the bottom during brewing. My favorite way is to use a tea filter bag and loose leaf green tea. Usually higher grade green tea is available in loose leaf form and not tea bag form. Here is a link to an Amazon to get one of these tea filter bags.

However, you can let it steep for up to twenty-four hours for a stronger brew if you want. Unlike hot tea, cold brewed tea won’t get bitter the longer you steep it. Therefore, many people like to let their tea steep overnight with this method so they can drink it in the morning. GREEN TEA 9371 is one of our products, welcome to your come and purchase!
