Its Tea Time: Warm up with the green

How to make green tea:

Bring water to a boil and let it cool to around 175 °F (79 °C). Heat water in a stovetop or electric kettle until it begins to boil. Then, turn off the heat and remove the lid so the water cools faster. Let the water cool for about 5 minutes or until it reaches 175 °F (79 °C)
Take one teaspoon of green tea leaves. If you want to make more than a cup of green tea, take 1 teaspoon of green tea leaves for each cup. So, take 4 teaspoons of green tea leaves for 4 cups of green tea.
Now, take the tea leaves in a strainer/sieve and keep aside.
Next, pour the hot water into the cup and let the tea steep for 3 minutes. This is the step where we need to be very careful. Not everyone likes their tea strong, so, to check whether the tea is just right, keep a spoon handy and drink a spoonful of tea every 30-45 seconds to find out if the flavor is right for you.
Can you add honey to green tea? Yes, why not!
For the best results, we recommend using a separate teapot specifically for brewing green tea. While not entirely necessary, this helps to prevent flavor contamination from other herbal blends and preserves the distinct green tea flavor profile. Use glass, ceramic, clay, porcelain or stainless steel teapots for brewing — avoid plastic and aluminum since they can alter flavors.
