How To Make Green Tea?
7 out of 10 people would agree that they are consuming at least a cup of green tea a day. This is due to the fact that everyone works longer hours at work and is in dire need of a relaxing yet invigorating cup of tea at least by the end of the day before bedtime. The best choice of the majority is green tea because of its numerous health benefits.
Your best choice is always to make your own green tea. Next question is how to make green tea? Are there any special ingredients that I need to add or equipments needed? Very good question indeed and the answer is simpler than you think.
The increase in demand has also prompted suppliers to jump on the bandwagon and, one way or the other, come up with their own version of green tea to make a buck or too. At times, you wouldn’t be able to see much of a difference in the labels because it is so easy to print something that isn’t true – such as the actual percentage amount of green tea is contained in one bag of bottle.
The very first thing that you need to get is of course loose green tea leaves. You can go to the market or an Asian store close by and get yourself some loose green tea leaves. Of course measuring them is a tricky one because these loose leaves come in different sizes as well. Not a big problem really. All you have to do is weigh them and set the right proportion of the leaves and the water by trial and error until you get the taste that you desire.
Also, make sure you use either spring or filtered water. As much as possible, never use distilled water since this ruins the integrity of the green tea leaves and it takes away essential health benefits that is one of the reasons why you are making green tea yourself.
As soon as you have a teapot, take at least a portion of loose green tea leaves per milliliters of water. Make use of a measuring cup when you put in the water and the green tea leaves in the teapot and let the water reach boiling point reducing the temperature of 85 degrees Celsius before dropping the leaves into the teapot. Let the leaves boil for only a minute at the recommended temperature for the perfect blend of green tea.
