Green Tea

There are few things better than a refreshing cup of green tea — one sip and you'll see.

Heat sixteen ounces of water to 170-175 °F. 

  • While you wait for your water to heat, measure one tablespoon of loose tea into a teapot, tea bag, or infuser. 

  • Once your water has heated, pour it over your tea leaves, allowing it to steep for 1-2 minutes, adjusting to your taste.

A couple notes: our strong green teas (like Sencha Fukamushi #105 or Gyokuro #23) benefit from a quick cold rinse of the tea leaves before steeping to ensure a less bitter brew. As with our oolongs, some green teas (we love Strawberry Sencha #24 and Dragon Pearl Jasmine #75 in particular) make a beautiful cup of tea with 2 or 3 steepings of the same leaves. Simply start your first steeping at 30-45 seconds and increase by 30 seconds for each following brew.
