Summer Tea Party

  
ICY TEAS, COOL OFFERS / Summer, 2024

Reading time: about 10 minutes

Tea is a wonderful beverage we all know as a refreshing, delicious, hot drink. But in the heat of summer, we are not always in the mood for a warm drink. Luckily, there are several ways to enjoy tea, even if the weather is hot. Let’s learn about how to make cold teas!

Information that is covered:

Matcha made cold

In general, matcha is usually made with hot water. The ideal temperature of the water is essential to make matcha foam well. But there are some matcha teas created with a special technique (freeze-drying) that allows these matcha powders to still foam even if prepared with cold water.

Marukyu Koyamaen offers:

Matcha AwarakuMatcha Awaraku
Thanks to its freeze-dried producing technology Awaraku does not need to be sifted before making tea, and even though it is suitable for hot matcha, it is more recommended to prepare cold. It has a grassy, fresh taste.

     ☞ 20 g Branded CAN > $11.88
     ☞ 40 g Branded CAN > $21.60
     ☞ 5 x 1.5 g one-cup pouches > $7.56
     
 

Matcha Suzukumo
Similar to Matcha Awaraku, Suzukomo was made with freeze-drying technology, needs no sifting, and is best enjoyed when made cold. It is creamy with floral notes.

     ☞ 20 g Branded CAN > $16.20
     ☞ 40 g Branded CAN > $30.24
     ☞ 5 x 1.5 g one-cup pouches > $9.72

 

We also offer sweetened green tea powders delicious for ice soft drinks:

Mizudashi - cold brew

Mizudashi means cold-brew tea in Japanese. Teas can have multiple characters. Tea prepared with cold water is amazingly refreshing with taste notes and aromas we might not get brewing them in hot water. Cold-brew tea is generally pleasant, mild, and sweet, especially compared to teas prepared with the above-mentioned iced tea method.

For this technique, we recommend Japanese, Chinese, and Taiwanese teas as well.

Recommended tea tools for making cold tea

To bring the best out of your summer tea, you need suitable tools. Some of them are summer tools by function, some by design, but they are all delightful addition to your summer tea time.

Hira chawan
“Hira” refers to the shape of the chawan: broad and flat. This shape, with its wide and open mouth, helps the matcha cool faster. With ice in it, it makes the perfect summer matcha.

Glass chawan
Cold touch and cool sight, a glass chawan brings a little extra to the summer tea times, especially when you add some ice to it.

Gokuhira and Hiramaru Kyusu
These flat teapots are ideal to make cold loose leaf tea. Either you prepare it with hot water and then cool it down, or you make mizudashi with the ice slowly melting and dripping on the leaves, these teapots are great additions to any tea lover’s collection.

Futanashi Kyusu
Futanashi kyusu is a lidless teapot. Without a lid that keeps the steam in, the tea can cool down faster. Also, since you can see the tea leaves opening, you know when your tea is ready.
