Summer is around the corner! Let’s make some refreshing drinks to quench our thirst. 

Here we made a delicious Green Tea Mojito (with Matcha Green Tea). Matcha adds a nice jammy taste and compliments the mints and lime very well. Below please find the recipe for a pitcher size Green Tea Mojito.

Ingredients:  

  • 1 tablespoon Matcha Green Tea
  • half cup white sugar. 
  • 2 handfuls fresh mint, or to taste.
  • 3-4 limes. 
  • 1 cup rum. If you prefer alcohol free, use coconut water instead.  
  • 36 oz. club soda.

Direction:

  • Put sugar and fresh mint into a pitcher. Muddle them until the mint leaves are broken down.
  • Quarter the limes and squeeze lime juice into pitcher. After being squeezed, add the lime pieces in pitcher and muddle them for 30 seconds to 1 minute.
  • Add Matcha Green Tea into pitcher. 
  • Pour and stir rum into the mixture.
  • Add ice. 
  • Add club soda and stir until Matcha and sugar are well dissolved.

Enjoy!

Available soon is the Apricot Cinnamon Tisane. Flavors of apricots and cinnamon complement each other very well. Fruity, sweet and refreshing. The cinnamon spicy it up slightly to give it some edge. Brew it hot with some honey to warm you up in the cold. Or make an iced tea with it to replenish and rehydrate in the summer. Cheers!

More Info On Cold Brewing

What is Cold Brewed Tea

Cold brewed tea is tea steeped in cold water for an extended period of time.

Pictured above is  Sencha  green tea cold brewed for 12 hours.

Pictured above is Sencha green tea cold brewed for 12 hours.

The process brews the tea leaves slowly, using time rather than temperature to release the flavors. Free form catechins(antioxidants) and tanning acids, which are good for the human body, are more dissolvable and readily released in cold brewing as opposed to regular hot brewing. In addition, the amount of caffeine released from cold brewing tea is only half of the caffeine released from regular hot tea brewing.

How to Cold Brew

IMG_5547.JPG
  • Use cold water or iced water to brew tea. (It takes longer to brew tea with iced water).
  • Ratio of tea leaves to water is usually 1:50 by weight (you can adjust the ratio according to your taste).
  • Put loose tea or tea bags into a water container filled with cold or room temperature water.
  • Put the container into the refrigerator. * Do Not Put It In Freezer
  • Tea leaves which come in stripped form such as green tea, black tea or flat/wavy Oolong tea (Pouchong) should be brewed in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours. We recommend 4-12 hours.
  • Tea leaves that are rolled such as Jade Oolong and Ti kuan Yin should be brewed in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours. We recommend 6-12 hours.
  • Strain the tea leaves and enjoy the refreshing cold brewed tea. And if you have excess tea left over, put it back to the refrigerator (remember to strain the leaves).
