    Recipes and Fun with Green Tea

    A few of our teas taste fantastic over ice. This is one of them! It's a lot of fun to add a kick of fruit, coconut, lemon, lime, herbs or ginger to this tea. Below you will find instructions for a single serving of iced green tea and a recipe for Homemade Ginger Green Tea Syrup. Add the syrup to club soda or to a  shaken cocktail.

    Iced Green Tea:

    2 tsp Mountain Monk Green tea

    1 1/2 cups ice cubes

    8 oz filtered water

    Sweetener (optional)


    Boil the water. Add 1-2 ice cubes to the water to cool it down. Add the tea leaves to the hot water in a pyrex measuring cup and steep for 3 minutes. Add the sweetener if desired. Strain and pour it over the ice in a pint glass.


    Homemade Ginger Green Tea Syrup:

    16 oz 175ºF filtered water (bring to boil, then cool with ice cubes)

    4 rounded teaspoons Mountain Monk Green Tea

    16 oz cold filtered water

    2 cups sugar

    Pinch of salt

    8 oz chopped and peeled ginger


    1) Add green tea to the hot water and steep for 3 minutes. Strain into a small nonreactive saucepan.

    2) Add 16 oz cold water, sugar, salt and ginger.

    3) Bring to a boil, reduce heat, then simmer for 45 minutes - 1 hour.

    4) Allow to cool. Strain the syrup. (The cooked ginger can be used for baking.)

    5) Boiling yields a golden color from the ginger and green tea. This syrup will keep in the refrigerator for a couple weeks. Use it to sweeten club soda, fresh squeezed lemonade or for a Mar-tea-ni!
