To make the perfect cup for one pour fresh boiling water into a cup or teapot, allow it to cool slightly before adding 1 teaspoon of tea, then allow to infuse for 2-3 minutes.
TIP: Green tea should be brewed at around 80°C. Steeping tea for too long or using boiling water will result in more tannins being released, resulting in a bitter and more astringent tea. There are two ways to make sure your water is not too hot, either stop the kettle just before it boils, or pour boiling water into your tea cup or pot first to allow it to cool a little before adding your tea.
Green tea is rich in natural plant compounds called polyphenols (including well studied EGCG – epigallocatechin gallate), which act as potent antioxidants. These chemicals neutralize free radicals in the body that are associated with the development of chronic diseases such as cardiovascular disease and cancer. Studies have linked green tea consumption with a reduced risk of high cholesterol (1), stroke (2), and cancer development (3).
Green tea has also been found to have a positive effect on liver health and may offer protection against liver disease. (5)
Drinking green tea has also been shown to help encourage weight loss by increasing metabolism and fat burning. EGCG, unique to green (and white) tea, seems to have an anti-diabetic and anti-obesity effect. (4)
Green tea consumption is also associated with better oral health. Researches discovered that polyphenols found in green tea can help protect against bacterial induced dental caries, bad breath and oral cancer. (6)
