What are the health benefits of organic green tea?

Purchasing organic green tea gives consumers peace of mind that what they’re consuming is 100% free of synthetic chemicals, pesticide-free, and GMO-free. As well as boasting all the health benefits of normal green tea varieties, organic green tea is good for both you and the environment.

Certified organic tea is often created using the latest food and agricultural technology. These innovative breakthroughs not only give tea farmers more control over their crops but allows them to establish sustainable harvesting practices. All of which means we can continue to enjoy healthy green tea for generations to come!

In general, green teas are antioxidant-rich and boast amazing anti-inflammatory properties. They also balance a healthy caffeine dose with an infusion of L-theanine, which counteracts the stimulant’s side effects while still providing your body with a great energy boost. All of which makes adding organic green tea into your tea selection at home.

 

How much green tea should I drink everyday?

There is no magical number of cups that one should drink in order to reap the optimal health benefits that come from sipping on green tea. Anything from one cup to five cups could positively impact your body; however, this benefit changes depending on your personal health. As a general rule of thumb, anything from three to five cups is considered a normal and reasonable amount of green tea to consume per day.

 

How to brew a cup of green tea

To brew a perfect cup of green tea you need to do the following.

  • One teaspoon or two grams of tea per 200ml.
  • Use water that is 70–80°C or one quarter cold water and three quarters boiling water.
  • Japanese sencha is best steeped for 1–3 minutes.
  • Chinese green teas, rolled green teas, and flavoured green teas can be steeped for up to four minutes.
  • Whether it be a traditional or flavoured green tea the trick is not to over-brew it. Brewing it for too long or using water that has just boiled will often result in a bitter-tasting green tea that is not enjoyable. Many people make this mistake and are turned off green tea as a result. But when made properly, green tea is a truly lovely and refreshing beverage that can be enjoyed any time of the day. Here are some tips on how to make the best cuppa!

    It is best to brew filtered water but this is not essential. Water used should be below boiling point at about 80°C. If you don’t have a temperature-controlled kettle, turn your kettle off before it reaches boiling point and allows it to sit for a minute before pouring.

    Alternatively, if your water has boiled then allow it to sit for about two minutes before pouring over your leaves, It also helps to pour some cold water over the leaves first. With finer green teas, the water can be as low as 70°C. If the water is too hot, it will burn the leaves and produce a bitter-tasting brew.

    Generally, green tea should be infused for approximately 2–3 minutes. The finer leaf varieties infuse between 1–2 minutes and the larger leaf for 2–3 minutes. All green loose leaf teas can be used more than once and some high grades can even withstand a number of infusions if used on the same day.
