Use 1 teaspoon (1 teabag or 2g of loose leaf) per cup. Heat your water or boil it in a kettle, add it to the water in your cup or mug, then let it steep. Once the tea has infused, remove it and discard it. Now, all that’s left to do is sip slowly and savor the flavor!
Brewing green tea is simple, but there are a few things you can do to make sure that it tastes the best it possibly can.
- Make sure it is fresh and keep it sealed airtight.
- Use freshwater rather than re-boiling water left in your kettle.
- Use water that’s at 80°C (176°F) for green tea.
- Stir but don’t crush the leaves with your teaspoon, let them unfurl naturally.
2-3 minutes is the average brew time, but as you brew green tea more often, you’ll know how long to brew for your personal tastes.
