Hi Debra,

Also, you were right about me getting used to the taste of the green tea.  I stuck with it and now, as you said I would, I actually like it. Thanks for the encouragement.

I let my green tea steep for a long time and it's never bitter.  But the water is not too hot.  The high heat of boiling draws out a lot of tannic acid and that's what makes it bitter.  Steaming water is hot enough.

The teas that should be made with boiling water is roots, barks and twigs, like dandelion root, etc.

Some types of Chinese green tea are good brewed longer and hotter, this can bring out the epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG), an antioxidant important for detoxification pathways.

I wouldn't recommend long-brewing for Japanese green tea, as it can damage the flavor and other beneficial components-- unless the water is not very hot at all.  I sometimes just put a tea bag in a room temperature bottle of water and wait 10 or 20 minutes or more, until the water turns green, and drink it on the road.

I remembered that some of you eat the Itaru's green tea leaves in a salad after you brew the tea...I tried it today...not bad.  Thanks for sharing.


For those of you who eat the leaves after brewing, have you every experienced too much energy? I'm wondering if I should *not* be eating them at dinner.
