    How to make green tea! This tip is from Dom1979!

    Just butting in. A lot of people 'burn' green tea which makes it bitter. You have to make sure the water isn't boiling (I put some cold water from the filter in first, then boiling water), and then only brew it for a couple of minutes. Mind you, you might just not like it!!!!

    I'll shut up now

    Yeah, that's very important. I drink green and white tea very often (around 5 days a week).
    I let the water boil a bit, then I switch off the stove and fill a mug with the hot water. After 2 minutes I put a tea bag, it brews smothly

    Ahhh that's interesting to know, thanks.

    I tried it once and hated it, thinking maybe that's why. Will give it another try.

    I was converted over to green tea over 3 years ago and haven't looked back. It's so much more refreshing than black tea with milk.
    This is how I make mine too :-)

    I use green tea leaves - make it in a small bowl like OP - then strain into a large Lock and Lock Tea Bottle with a filter then top up with cold water and put in the fridge. Don't like it hot but it is brilliant cold with ice.
