Green tea for icing

The other day at a great Japanese Restaurant here in town I was served a wonderful iced green tea. I asked what tea was used, but they just said ‘green’.

I’m not really a fan of green tea, and have only a couple in my cupboard, so if any of you can share which green teas you ice, it would be a great help to many, I’m sure.

From the topic name, I thought you were talking about frosting and I got pumped! I got sweets on the brain recently.

I ice many of my green teas – blends with fruit or floral work really well!

My favorite blend to ice is Steep City’s Blushing Geisha http://oolongowl.wordpress.com/2013/04/08/blushing-geisha-from-steep-city-teas/ yum!

Lupicia also has some really good fruity green tea blends that are very tasty iced! http://www.lupiciausa.com/

Matcha just mixed in with water and ice – fantastic and energizing! Often when I was served “green iced tea” at a sushi restaurant, it’s usually matcha.
My favorite matchas are from

All fails, try cold steeping your greens too.
