Today I am sharing with you some tips to make your green tea taste better and you can get maximum benefits from it.
Make Green Tea Taste Better
Right Temperature for water
If the water used for steeping the green tea is too hot it causes the tea to taste bitter. If the water is not warm enough, you will not get the full flavor extracted out of the leaves.
Water between 160-180 degrees is the best. But yeah, we are not sitting to measure the temperature each time right ?? So how do you know if the
- When you put water for heating, you would notice bubbles being formed at the bottom of the pan. This is the point you need to stop heating the water.
- Sometimes you can just check for the steady steam stream coming from the pan.
The right amount of time to Steep
Green tea is a delicate form of tea. It is important to steep it for 2-3 minutes. Doing it for less than 2 mins prevents the tea leaves from releasing full flavor and steeping for more time will make it taste bitter. I usually brew for 2 minutes and then taste every 30 seconds until I get the desired taste and then I take the tea bag out.
Add Crushed Mint Leaves
This has been a great discovery for me. I added a few crushed mint leaves to my green tea and I loved the flavor. It adds a refreshing flavor to the tea.
