Green Tea Sri Lanka - Gun Powder Extra Special - Organic - Packed in 75 g pouch.
Steeping Time: Do not use Boiling water on any Green Tea! You boil the water and let it wait for about 1-2 minutes. This will let the temperature drop to about 185 F to 180 F.
If you use boiling water on Green Tea you will burn and scale the delicate Green Tea. The tea becomes bitter. Then you start complaining that you don't like Green Tea because it is bitter. It is not the fault of getting bad tea but you brewed it wrong.
Also try to make a small quantity of tea initially. The general rule is to use 1.5 to 2 tsp of tea leaves, (one and a half tea-spoons or two tsp) to a 5 – 6 ounce cup. In Canada and USA we have observed that the cup size is 6 to 8 ounces.
General Information: We have posted a Tea Steeping chart at the bottom on our website. Please use this as a general guideline only. (rp)
