Green tea is believed to have many healthful benefits. If you have ever tasted a excellent cup of green tea it can be reviving and tasty. But the delicate nature of this tea does demand a certain watchful eye when preparing it. Here is an simple to follow guide on how to brew an outstanding cup of green tea.

• Use high quality tea a lesser quality will not yield as excellent a flavor.

• If using lesser quality, boil water and steep for a longer period of time. This will help extract the flavors.

• When using the preferred high quality tea do not boil the water. Gently heat the water and steep the tea. Steep for about half the time recommended, if let go too long the flavor will turn bitter and sharp.

• Never use an aluminum pot to boil water. It will change the flavor of the tea. A cooper pot is ideal.

• Use only porcelain or ceramic to steep the tea.

• If the water does boil allow it to cool for 1-3 minutes before adding the tea. To ascertain the proper water temperature, check the direction of the steam. If the steam is drifting straight up the water is too hot. When the steam drifts sideways the water is at the proper temperature.
