Best Ways to Drink green tea

1

Try Matcha

Matcha, while now commonly found in things like ice creams and lattes, was originally consumed only with hot water as a tea. It is made from very finely ground tea leaves, and is known for its antioxidant, metabolism-boosting, and heart-healthy properties. It contains less caffeine than coffee, but still enough to give you a significant boost.

To prepare matcha, you will need a bamboo matcha whisk. Add a small amount of matcha to a small bowl and top with hot water, just enough to make it a thin paste. Then whisk vigorously from side to side until no lumps remain. From there, simply top with enough hot water to fill your cup and enjoy. You may also add steamed milk and/or sugar if you prefer, but it's worth it to try the deep, unique, earthy taste of fresh matcha even just once.

Use water at the right temperature

Boiling water is too hot for green tea. If the water is at its boiling point, the tea will be astringent and bitter. Similarly, if the water is too cold, you won’t be able to extract the full flavor out of the leaves.

Water with 160 to 180 degrees F (71°C-82°C) is good enough for green tea. This is when the water is being boiled and bubbles are starting to form at the bottom of the pot. I usually heat the water until I can see steam coming off the pot. The other method is to boil the water and let it cool for few minutes before dipping the green tea bag. Use water at the right temperature

Combine other flavors

Green tea has a ‘grassy’ or an ‘earthy’ taste. While some are addicted to its flavor, others can’t get used to it. If you are in the same boat as me (who does not like the taste), you can always add a bit of honey to make the taste bearable. Moreover, you need to ensure if you are using the right amount of green tea. A good ratio is 2 grams of green tea leaves with 6 ounces of water.

Yes, honey can alter the tea’s taste but lemon juice or mint can bring out its flavor more subtly. Sometimes, all you need is a pinch of lemon juice to bring out the most delicious flavor.

Use quality water to brew green tea

Mineral water can sometimes counteract all the minerals found in green tea leaves. If you use mineral water to brew green tea, you must be aware of the pungent taste it creates afterward. Spring or purified water is the best to brew green tea because they are free of excess minerals and pollutants. Therefore, they do not alter the tea’s taste.

Similarly, use fresh leaves instead of tea bags as they produce a better flavor. Because the leaves have room to breathe, the flavor is more authentic and richer than the tea bags. Use quality water to brew green tea
