Green tea is recognised worldwide for its medicinal qualities! It can help to build up your immune system because it contains lots of wonderful anti-oxidants. It also aids with digestion.
Drink your green tea after meals! Perfect with any Asian meals, especially sushi.
For the perfect brew use 4/5 boiling water, 1/5 cold water. This will reduce the temperature slightly and prevent the leaves scalding which can make the tea bitter. Brew for 1-2 minutes.
You can have your own Japanese tea ceremony at home - all you need is the tea set, green tea and a tranquil setting!
Herbal teas are a healthy and tasty alternative to coffee. Try a peppermint or chai tea for an afternoon 'pick-me-up'. There are so many varieties to try! My favourite - Jasmine tea!
Teas are best stored in a cool, dry place away from heat and light - this will help to retain the flavours.
