Experience the goodness of the green
Green tea has been used for centuries as an active natural ingredient in Eastern herbal medicine and plays a key part in promoting a range of health benefits thanks to its high level of antioxidants. Gaining its name for being naturally green in colour, this cultural brew has made its way into modern times as a natural cup of goodness. Many of the active ingredients and compounds in green tea have been the focus of studies that consider the potential health benefits of the brew.
How to brew green tea
There is something of an art to brewing the perfect cup of green tea, but don’t worry — it’s pretty easy! Here, you’ll find all the tips and tricks to create a perfectly balanced cup to enjoy green tea benefits with every sip.
Choose your flavour
The green tea collection at T2 ranges from the more traditional flavours of a Japanese Sencha to the infusion of jasmine in our Buddha’s Tears Loose Leaf or China Jasmine teas to the delicious fruity flavours in our Gorgeous Geisha and Green Rose blends. There is something for every taste preference in our Green collection — the key is finding the one (or three) that is right for you.
Choose your tea style
Some people prefer loose-leaf teas to create an exclusive blend and adjust the amount of tea they use in every brew, while others prefer the convenience of a tea bag. With the breadth of choices available in our green tea range, no matter which option you go for, you will find the perfect tea style here at T2.
Choose your vessel
While some prefer the ceremony of brewing in a traditional teapot, others might simply enjoy the simplicity of the humble tea mug. At T2, we offer a broad range of tea infusers and strainers as well as takeaway tea flasks for those sipping their teas on the go. Choose the vessel that will work for you — and enjoy your cup of green goodness.
It's time to brew
With all the parts and pieces you’ll need, it’s now time to begin the process of brewing the perfect cup of tea. Each of our flavours comes with its own specific instructions, but there are a few basic rules to follow when brewing green tea.
Prepare your cup
One of the key steps that many people miss when pouring their tea is to have their cup or mug prepared. The ceramic tea cups are designed to hold temperatures for a specific time. To prevent your tea from cooling too quickly, you can prepare your cup by filling it with boiling water, which is to be emptied before pouring your tea.
Achieve the right temperature
Green tea is not traditionally brewed at boiling point as this can have a detrimental effect on the flavours that are released from the leaves. The ideal cup of green is infused at a temperate 80 degrees Celsius. If you don’t own a tea kettle with fixed temperatures, the easiest way to achieve the right temperature is to add 20% cold water to 80% boiling water before immersing your tea bag or infuser.
Add the right amount of tea
As a rule, 1 teaspoon of tea leaves makes 1 cup of hot tea, while 2 teaspoons make the perfect iced tea. As you experiment with our range of green teas, you might find that you prefer certain blends to be a little stronger, which is why loose-leaf tea is such a wonderful option.
Don’t wait too long
Unlike stronger, more potent black teas, green tea is a light flavour that is best brewed for a shorter time. If you leave your green to infuse for too long, you risk a more bitter, astringent flavour profile. If you have opted for an Oolong or a fruit-infused blend, it’s best to wait a little longer than the recommended 1-3 minutes, as these complex flavours sometimes take a little longer to come through. Now that you have followed the steps to put together the perfect cup of tea, it’s time to sit back, relax and enjoy all the natural goodness that comes from a delicious cup of T2 green tea.
