Have you tried Iced Tencha? Tencha teas are limited edition only available in late summer. Iced Tencha has a unique, excellent, and noble flavor which is different both from Iced Gyokuro and Matcha. The subtle aroma lingers in the mouth for a while. The unique flavor of Tencha has quietly been enjoyed only by Matcha manufacturers for many years.
You can prepare Iced Tencha using the same brewing method as Iced Gyokuro. There are three different ways to brew Iced Tencha, (1) brewing by ice, (2) brewing by hot water once and cooling quickly, and (3) brewing by cool water. Each brewing method creates a unique flavor.
Tencha is only half the weight of Gyokuro or Sencha tea leaves; it is 50% lighter. So, please put about two times (2x) the cubical content of Tencha tea leaves in Kyusu tea pot.

(How to make Iced Tencha)

(1) Brewing by ice
This brewing technique is a time consuming process, but provides the most noble taste and atmosphere.

- Place 7 to 8g (3 tablespoons) of Tencha tea leaves into the Kyusu (teapot).
- Fill up the Kyusu with pieces of ice.
- Wait for the ice to thaw naturally at room temperature (do not heat the Kyusu).
- It is finished when the pieces of ice are fully thawed.
- Pour the tea from the Kyusu into each glass alternately little by little, so that the quantity and taste of the tea is equal in each glass.

(2) Brewing by hot water once and cooling quickly
This brewing technique is faster than the other two ways. So, you can prepare Iced Tencha without spending so much time.

- Place 7 to 8g (3 tablespoons) of Tencha tea leaves into the Kyusu (teapot).
- Pour 200ml (7.04fl oz) of 176F (80C) temperature of water into the Kyusu.
- Wait for 2 to 3 minutes. You'll want to brew the tea quite strongly because later the thawed ice will weaken the f lavor.
- Pour tea from the Kyusu into each glass filled up with pieces of ice to cool the tea quickly. When doing it, pour alternately little by little, so that the quantity and taste of the tea is equal in each glass.
- Because Tencha is lightweight, some Tencha leaves may float on the water surface. In that case, please press the tea leaves down into the water to soak and become saturated with water.

(3) Brewing by cool water
This brewing process is easy to do and creates tea which is easy to store and preserves well.

- Place 5 to 8g (2 to 3 tablespoons) of Tencha tea leaves into the Kyusu (teapot).
- Pour 500 to 1000ml (17.6 to 35.2fl oz) of cool water into the tea pot and store in the refrigerator for 2 to 6 hours.
- In order to equalize the taste of the tea, shake the Kyusu horizontally before pouring the tea into each glass.
