To set the stage for a wistful late summer brew, the temperature of the water for green tea plays an important role. If the water is too hot, your green tea will be bitter and lose its aroma. Use water that is between 75 – 80 degree Celsius for about three to four minutes, and you will find yourself in green tea heaven. Lochan Tea First Flush Green Tea (2014) is quality green tea. With quality green teas, you can use more tea leaves if you want a shorter steep time, a perfect remedy for those in a hurry to enjoy the last days of summer. If that’s you, simply steep for 30 seconds to a minute, for a maximum of three to five infusions before replacement leaves are needed.
Perhaps, like me, you are fortunate to discover this gem sealed and hidden in your pantry. If not, you can connect with Lochan Tea. They have a variety of teas to infuse and inspire your varied tastes.
