1. Choose the Right Teaspoon.
There are two main ways to measure green tea: volume (tea bags) and weight (tea leaves). If you use tea bags, make sure you buy them with a measuring spoon included. It would help if you also used a teapot that holds at least 6 cups of liquid. Check out this teapot I use in my home.
2. Add Water.
Once you’ve measured the Water, add it to the pot. Let the water boil, then turn off the heat and let the water cool down. This will help extract more flavor from the green tea. You can use either filtered water or tap water. I use filtered because it makes my teas taste better.
After the Water comes to a boil, remove the lid and allow the tea to steep for five minutes.
Then strain the leaves into another container using a strainer or cheesecloth. You can also use a paper towel to squeeze out excess liquid.
This is an option for you. Let it sit for a few minutes, which will help your tea steep and have a more robust flavor if that is something you like. If not, you can put the green tea in longer for a stronger flavor.
4. Drink up and enjoy!
Green tea contains antioxidants called polyphenols, which help protect against cancer and other diseases.
