Iced Green Thai Tea

  • 1/2 tsp. MATCHA or Edible Green® green tea powder
  • 4 oz Hot water
  • Sweetener, if desired
  • Ice
  • Coconut Milk
  1. Put Matcha or Edible Green® green tea powder in a heat proof cup
  2. Add 4 oz hot water and mix well
  3. Add sweetener, if you wish. Simple syrup* is recommended for the classic Thai Tea flavor, but you may want to choose your favorite healthier options, such as Agave
  4. Fill a glass with ice cubes
  5. Pour the 4 oz tea over the ice
  6. Add coconut milk,** and enjoy!

*Shake the can or stir coconut milk well before you add it to the tea since cream and liquid tend to separate in the can.

Crisp Iced Green Tea

  • 1 tsp Gyokuro or Fukamushi Sencha tea leaves
  • Water
  • Ice
  • Slice of Fruit, such as lemon, pear, white grapes
  1. Put 1 tsp. Gyokuro or Fukamushi Sencha tea leaves per 8 oz water in infuser basket.
  2. Add pure water (room temperature is fine) over the infuser basket. Shake the basket a bit so tea leaves get ‘coated’ with water.
  3. Let it steep for a few hours in fridge.
  4. Check the strength of the tea–if it’s steeped strong enough, take the infuser basket out to avoid bitterness.
  5. Pour over ice, and enjoy! Add a slice of lemon, pear, white grapes, etc. if you wish!
