From our friends at Verdant Tea - How to make a concentrated tea shot recipe:
Using a two to three ounce cup, add three teaspoons of tea, and fill with 175 degree water, steeping for 2-3 minutes. For green teas, use 160 degree water and steep for 2-3 minutes. The cooler water and longer steep time will allow you to get a potent brew without the tea going bitter. After steeping, pour the tea through a strainer into another cup to stop the infusion, and cool in the refrigerator or an ice bath. You can make a bigger concentrate using the same proportions and store it in a bottle to make fun summer drinks like tea sodas and cocktails. For example, to fill up a 16 ounce container with concentrate, use about sixteen teaspoons of tea, and steep for 2-3 minutes.
Concentrated tea shots can be used in cooking quite easily. Try replacing some of the water when making rice with concentrated tea for a tea flavored rice, add a concentrated pu’er to a soup stock, or an oolong to a citrus salad dressing.
