*How to Brew a Cup of Green Tea:-

Producing the perfect cup of green tea is a tricky process. If not handled properly, those same polyphenols that provide health benefits can ruin the flavor, making the tea taste “gassy.” It’s particularly important not to overbrew. While it’s best to follow the manufacturer’s instructions for each variety of green tea, here are some general

instructions:
Use one tea bag, or 2 – 4 grams of tea,* per cup.
Fill a kettle with cold water and bring to a boil.
After unplugging the kettle, allow it to stand for up to 3 minutes.
Pour the heated water over the tea bag or tea, and allow it to steep for up to 3 minutes. If using a tea bag, remove the bag.
Allow the tea to cool for three more minutes.
*One to two teaspoons, depending on the variety of green tea you are brewing.

ENJOY 🙂
