The consumption of Green Tea is believed to have originated in China sometime before 2700 BC, where it has been enjoyed both as a beverage drink for its wonderful taste and for its incredible health benefits, such as: strengthening the immune system and helping the body fight free radicals which helps maintain a healthy body and youthful appearance. It has become popular in the entire world since it was first drunk in the Orient and has since then been enjoyed both as a highly potent health supplement and as the incredible beverage that it is.
Water temperature is a critical factor.
Too hot water brings out bitter taste and sweet and complex flavours will be lost.
Bring a kettle to boil and leave for about 3 min to cool down to 70-90C.
Measure appr. one teaspoon of tea leaves for a cup of tea.
Steeping time: Chinese green teas usually require 1-3 min to steep.
Experimenting is recommended within that range.
