  • Boil Water: Begin by boiling fresh, filtered water. The ideal temperature for green tea is typically around 175 to 185°F (80 to 85°C). If you don't have a thermometer, allow the water to cool for a few minutes after boiling to reach the desired temperature.

  • Steep the Tea: Allow the tea to steep for about 2 to 3 minutes for a milder flavor or up to 5 minutes for a stronger brew. Steeping time can vary depending on your personal preference and the specific type of green tea you're using. Be cautious not to over-steep, as it can make the tea bitter.
  • Remove the Tea Bag or Strain: If using a tea bag, gently remove it from the cup or teapot after steeping. If you used loose tea leaves, remove the infuser or strain the tea into another cup.
