Many people enjoy black tea or iced tea, but did you know that green tea is much healthier? It’s true! Read on to find out more…
Not only is green tea a delightful, light-flavored beverage, it’s also chock full of health benefits. Surprisingly enough, it is even considered an important nutritional means for warding off cancer. Isn’t that amazing?
How Do I Make Green Tea?
There are three main ways that you can make green tea. They are tea bag, tea ball, or loose tea. Each of these methods is pretty simple, and no matter which way you choose you will end up with healthy, nutritious, and delicious green tea.
Tea Bag –
This one is easy! Simply put your tea bag into your cup and pour boiling water over it. Steep the tea for approximately 5 minutes before drinking.
Tea Ball –
Also very simple, the tea ball is very much like the tea bag. Just fill up your tea ball with 1 scoop of green tea, pour boiling water into your cup, and add the tea ball. Steep the tea for approximately 5 minutes before drinking.
Loose Tea –
The loose tea method is personally my least favorite, but some people love it! Firstly, you will need a teapot that’s easy to clean. Fill the teapot with approximately the amount of water you will need to fill your teacup or cups if you are making multiple cups. Boil your water, but turn it off as soon as it begins to bubble. Put 1 scoop of green tea into the teapot for each cup of green tea that you would like to make. Let it steep for a few minutes, and then pour through a strainer into your cup.
If you don’t mind the occasional stray tea leaf in your cup, then you don’t need to use the strainer. Personally, I dislike getting any tea leaves into my cup, so I always use a strainer.
What Else Can Be Done With Green Tea?
Traditionally, green tea is consumed hot and plain, with no additions. However, if you are drinking green tea for the health benefits and would prefer a little bit of flavor, try adding something from my list below.
