Green Tea

I’ve started drinking Green Tea.  It seems that 2 cups per day with lemon in it is a great way to get antioxidants and the lemon makes them 4x more accessible.  Great information on Green Tea from Dr Weil.  A few tips for brewing green tea so it doesn’t become too bitter:

  • the water should be just cooler than boiling
  • let it steep for just a couple minutes.  Many herbal teas can be steeped for a long while, but the green tea leaves should be removed so it doesn’t become too bitter
  • add a thin slice of lemon or lime to enhance the antioxidants
