It seems as if everyone has a Keurig on the kitchen countertop for brewing coffee in an instant. At home and in the office, Keurigs are everywhere. And now, many tea drinkers are left wondering if they can use their machine to make K-Cup tea. Let's talk about that today!
The world of Japanese green tea lovers shouldn’t feel left out of the Keurig hysteria. This is because the Keurig is perfectly crafted to also make a quick-steeping cup of Japanese green tea. When you don’t have the time or desire to prepare your green tea using traditional Japanese green tea sencha preparations, you can reach for your Keurig.
I was happy to learn that Keurig considered its tea lovers by enlisting a team of tea authorities to provide steps and good tips to get a good cup of tea. So here I am going to give you a convenient way to brew a cup of tasty Japanese green tea and achieve the best flavor in a pinch.
Please note: This works well with sencha loose-leaf green tea but not with matcha or powdered green tea. For Powdered tea, the tea absorbs water and gets stuck. The best was when I mixed 95% sencha with just 5% sparkle matcha on top, with which I got a nice green tea with an aroma from sencha.
While we’re talking about Keurig brewing, I thought I would give a quick review of one of the most popular Keurig small pod products you can find on Amazon. The Keurig product is the "Keurig K-Classic Coffee Maker K-Cup Pod".
The Keurig K-Classic Coffee Maker K-Cup Pod has been crafted to exhibit some very good features that are relevant to green tea lovers. Although there are many small pod brewers on the market, the one I am featuring happens to have been given the BestReviews (found on Amazon's site) editorial recommendation as "Best of the Best" in the category of best pod coffee maker overall.
A helpful review of this product reveals the following highlights:
