Health benefits of green tea:
Green tea is not only a treat for the palate, but also a source of numerous health benefits. Rich in antioxidants and polyphenols, green tea is often associated with boosting the immune system, supporting metabolism and improving heart health.

The art of preparation: the right water temperature and brewing time for green tea
The preparation of green tea is an art that should be carried out with care and attention. The right water temperature and infusion time are crucial to bring out the full flavour and health benefits of green tea.

Water temperature:
The ideal water temperature for green tea is between 70°C and 80°C. Do not use boiling water as this can lead to a bitter flavour. Using water that is too hot can burn the delicate leaves and affect the subtle flavours. A kettle with an adjustable temperature is ideal for achieving the perfect temperature.

Brewing time:
Brewing time varies depending on the type of green tea. In general, green tea should steep for around 2 to 3 minutes. Steeping for too long can lead to bitterness, while steeping for too short a time may not fully release the flavours. Some varieties, such as Sencha, may require shorter steeping times of around 1 to 2 minutes, while longer steeping times may be considered for Gyokuro or Matcha.
