Green Tea 25 Pack - Organic.
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 185º F to 180º F.
If you use boiling water on Green Tea you will burn and scale the delicate Green Tea. The Green Tea, has not gone through a "Fermenting and Firing" process like its counterpart the "Black Tea". When we meet pepole on a "one on one basis" and when asked if they like green tea, they start complaining that they don't like Green Tea because it is bitter. It is not the fault of getting bad Green Tea, but you brewed it wrong.
If you are new to tea drinking, please do write to us and we will be most delighted to share with you the differences of Green Tea and Black Tea.
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: Please see our Tea Steeping chart on our website. This is generally a broad based guide line for the "Novice Tea Drinker" here in Canada or in North America. (rp)
