Tips for
Chilled Tea
Chilled tea is refreshing and easy to make. All you need is a glass pitcher with a tea sieve, cold water, your favorite green tea and 30min of patience. 

Depending on the size of your pitcher use about 7g/0.25oz of green tea leaves for 1l of water. Place the tea leaves in a tea sieve and pour cold water to soak all tea leaves. Let the pitcher sit in a fridge for at least 30min and voilà your smooth chilled summer tea. The longer you wait the more flavourful the tea will be. If you like, you may add a few mint leaves or a slice of lemon to have it more refreshing. 

If you are short of time (or patience;] ), you can also make a hot brew first and add ice cubes to cool it, that works equally well. As catethins (responsible for bitter and astringent flavor in tea) are much slower to come out in cold water, though, tea will be naturally sweeter and smoother when making cold brew directly.

The teas bellow are especially good for chilled tea.

Meet Obubu's Friends - Lauren

Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Lauren Danson, and I decided I wanted to host tea parties for a living. So, I’m the CEO of Mizuba Tea Co.! I specialize in Matcha, but I love all Japanese green teas. I’m particularly excited about cold-brewed Kyobancha this summer. 
How did you get to know Obubu?Well, the long answer is that I traveled through Japan and had the best tea of my life in Uji, March 2013. After coming home, I incorporated my own tea business in August to share this region’s amazing tea with America, choosing to work directly with farmers and personally have a relationship with the source of my teas.  Since then, I’ve met several like-minded tea enthusiasts, and the short answer is that I became familiar with Obubu through a very knowledgeable friend in the tea industry, Ian Chun. Thanks to him, I spent a wonderful afternoon seeing the fields and taking tea with the team at Obubu! 
What is Obubu to you? Obubu is a mission. A mission very similar to what drives Mizuba: a commitment to sharing the experience of fine tea at all levels. Much like how Akky-san fell in love with a cup of Matcha at the source, I too, became enamoured with Matcha when experiencing that tea in the fields of Uji. The question is, how can we best share and communicate that experience with others? I think, and am inspired by how Obubu brings youthful energy and fresh perspective to a very old industry. Most of this perspective is based on education, transparency, and a re-invigoration the true art that is crafting tea. Additionally, there is a real sense that tea brings about community – and I am so happy to say Obubu participates in one of Mizuba’s most valued mission statements: showing how tea creates connectivity, culture, and community from source to cup.
What is your favourite way to make tea? Oh goodness. There really is nothing like whisking up a frothy cup of Matcha (or taking it a step further and grinding your own tencha in an ishiusu). But… lately I’ve loved how kukicha looks so golden in my little glass Hario pot. 
What message would you like to pass to Obubu readers and friends? You can search for the best, most pristine tea ever grown, harvested, and crafted – but it won’t mean half as much unless you take the time to slow down, savour, and share it with those around you.
