My husband and I like to end our evenings enjoying a good cup of tea. It has become a bit of a family ritual for us, as our youngest loves to make it for us, and she does a very good job for an 8 year old! We recently discovered Green Tea, after hearing about some of the health benefits of it (like its full of antioxidants). Being new to Green Teas, we were looking for one that did not have a bitter taste, and found the Lipton Green Tea to be a great option.
Here are some tips on how to brew the best cup:
- Choose Lipton Green Tea or one of their flavored varieties for morning and afternoon cups. and then they have decaffeinated if you want to enjoy in the evening like we do.
- Start with cold water, and boil in a kettle if possible (it seems to make a better cup then microwaving).
- It preferable to pour the water over the tea bag (versus dunking the tea bag in the water) to help release more flavor from the tea leaves).
- Remove the tea bag after 2 to 3 minutes (depending on how strong you like it).
- Add a teaspoon of honey if you like it sweetened. I take mine with honey, my husband drinks his without!
- It also tastes great iced. Let your brewed tea cool in the fridge, and then pour over ice to enjoy.
Green tea has many great health benefits that include:
- Green tea and herbals boosted with botanicals and vitamins will leave you feeling your best!
- Its full of antioxidants
- Green tea also has small amounts of minerals that are good for you
- Its said to help with weight loss, especially around the belly area
- It is also said to help brain health, especially as you age
- Green tea can benefit your gums as it keeps bacteria at bay
