Green Tea: Don't be Afraid!

Following up to my post about National Hot Tea Month and the benefits of green tea I thought I'd share a great article that explains the proper way to brew green tea.  I know, I know...who knew there was a "proper way" other than to boil your water and let it steep to your desired preference?  I actually learned this tidbit when I hosted a "Tea Party" bridal shower for a friend several years back who adored tea and drinks it daily.  I turned my living room and dining room into a real "Tea Room" with little round tables and chairs.

I digress, back to the subject...turns out that depending on the type tea you are brewing the temperature of the water is key.  Green tea should be steeped in water with a temperature of 170 degrees.  Read the article below for more facts.
