Often green tea can taste overly bitter if brewed incorrectly. The key to brewing this great cup of green tea is to remember that "Less is more!" Less tea, less temperature, less time! Use 1 teaspoon of loose leaf or 1 pyramid bag per cup. Brew for only 2-3 mins at 80ºC. This will help avoid any bitterness, and instead will bring out the beautifully smooth sweetness of the green tea. So how do you get the correct temperature? If you don't have a temperature controlled kettle, just let your kettle cool down or add a small amount of cold water when brewing - fill your cup (or pot) with about one quarter cold water and three quarters boiling water, to give you a great temperature for brewing. Then add your tea leaves, and brew. Best without milk and use filtered water if you can. Once you've had your first cup you can also add more water over the tea leaves to enjoy a second infusion.
