A Guide To Green Tea and Why You Should Be Drinking It

A Guide To Green Tea and Why You Should Be Drinking It

It is common to hear these days that green tea is great for you, but what are the exact benefits and what is the best way to brew it?

Green tea has many health benefits including:

  • It can help you to improve your endurance during exercise. Scientifically it has been proven that the antioxidants in green tea can help the body to burn fat as fuel.
  • The antioxidants in green tea help to keep your body healthy. Though the scientific evidence is mixed, it is believed that the properties in the tea help to fight off a whole list of cancers and lower the risk of heart attack. 
  • It is hydrating and delicious!
  • Tea can be taken on the go with a reusable tea cup.

So how do we make a great cuppa?

We recommend staying on the cooler side when it comes to preparing the water for green tea. Usually around 65 Celsius - 70 Celsius. Trying to use slightly colder water will ensure your tea does not taste bitter or even grassy. 

Steeping

With all teas, it is hard to give exact and optimal steeping times. Different tea will need different amounts of time.  As a guide, we suggest steeping tea for 2-4 minutes.

And the best part, with an Uppercup you can take your tea on the go! Uppercup is perfect for tea drinkers. The double wall design means that you tea will stay warm and your fingers cool.
