I got introduced to green tea when I was living with my aunt in the states. She was being treated for cancer and her doctor had recommended her to drink at least 2 cups of Green Tea everyday.
We used to sit and chat about various topics while she used to drink her daily advised tea. as few weeks passed by I started having a cup with her and realised it was actually very soothing and actually did taste rather good. So now I am very much into the habit of having one or two cups of green tea on a daily basis .
I also realised that many of my friends wanted to get into this habit but as I spoke to a few they all had the same complain , that it turned out bitter and had no taste.That’s why I am here to show you how to brew the green tea in a manner that you will not have the bitter taste and be actually be able to enjoy this great drink as I have since so many years.

Ingredients for Green Tea
- Loose green tea leaves Green Tea bag OR
- Heat 1 cup of water to boiling point. (Love the sound that Kettle make once its reached the boiling point.. invest in one, you wont regret it.) Switch off the gas and set a timer for two minutes so the water cools down.
- Add the water to cup which already has the tea bag or tea leaves using a tea infuser and let it brew for two more minutes. If you brew it longer, the tea will taste bitter, so just 2 minutes is sufficient.
If you ask me which green tea is good, i’ll say try few bands as everyone has its own taste. For most people Twinings Brand could be a good strating point.
3 Cheers for your next & perfect cup of Green Tea. Enjoy!
