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.
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 to achieve the best flavor in a pinch.
Please note: This works well with sencha loose leaf green tea, but does not work well with matcha or powdered green tea. For Powdered tea, the tea absorbs water and gets stuck. The best was when I mixed 95% of sencha and just 5% sparkle matcha on top, with which I get a nice green tea with aroma from sencha.
