Is Green Tea, Your Tea?…
The tea that some might consider the “original tea” of all tea, the Green Tea.
The most talked about tea in town, most people, if not all, love it and they can’t stop talking about it. It is flavourful, healthy and popular.
So, we don’t want to take so much of your time, that is why we are keeping this video short and simple. A little bit of background and tidbits that will make you one step closer to being the tea hero to your customers.
In this video, you will learn:
1. what makes green tea a healthier choice? Or, is it really the healthier choice?
2. how to know the right kind of green tea for your body type.
3. why some people think that green tea taste bitter?
In the above video: It must be the most talked about tea, in the sense that when people think about healthy tea, they think about healthy Green tea.
And this is partially because of the industry; the companies of Green tea makers have been actually researching it a lot more than others.
Like many of the Japanese tea companies. They have actually invested their money in a researching.
So gradually people start to think green tea is actually healthier than black tea.
There is definitely a lot of argument and suggestions on you know, one side is right and one side is wrong.
And here, I’m not really going to talk about that, it’s just that sometimes you have to also look at your body type.
I know a friend who would not drink green tea because, after they drunk it they kind feel nauseous, because their body type it’s just not suitable for green tea.
Now, what I would talk about though is the two ways that the green teas are made.
Which will change the tea taste and it creates some different kind of flavors if you will.
So for example, the Chinese green tea is typically finished with roasting. So, what that means is, when they roast dry it the tea taste a little bit more roasty, the tea leaves ten to be a little bit browny not necessary brown brown but, you notice a dark color.
The really well know Chinese green tea would be the Jasmine tea, which some people thought is just Jasmine flowers but the truth is no, it’s actually jasmine infuse into the green tea.
Then we have Long Jing or the Dragon Well, that’s also a really well known olivy tasting Chinese green tea.
However, if you go for the Japanese ones, they are typically grassier.
If you think about it, if you go to a sushi restaurant, Japanese restaurant, they generally use, or obviously serve you Japanese green tea and they tend to be grassier in taste.
Some people like it, some people don’t. And Japanese green tea actually goes really well with salmon and a lot of sea food dishes.
There are these two different types of projection method set, cause them to you know to create this kind of different taste.
Now the other think that some people say is “I don’t like green tea it taste bitter.”
And we found out actually how they make it and they basically make it with super-hot water.
If your water just off the boil and you pour it on to you green tea, you are killing it you are really killing them.
Do not do that, you need cooler water. Ok?
In fact, if you pour it with tepid water you can add a bit more tea leaves in your pot; you have a flavorful cup, without actually all that bitterness to it.
So, this is something that often needs a bit of adjusting because people going to think the hot tea, hot tea you know, you going to think that it got to be so hot, that is only just ok to drink in terms of temperature.
But the fact is no, I mean you can brew it with slightly more tepid type of water and have more tea leaves in it to actually give you a flavorful cup.
That is if obviously like a stronger flavorful cup. But if you like it light, again don’t over brew it and don’t use really hot water.
Cool the water down a little bit you know, just give it a minute of rest or whatever, and then pour the water from your kettle to you tea pot.
So, there you have it a little bit about the green tea. And these last couple of videos talks about black tea and green tea.
Those are obviously the really common types. Now we are adventuring to the exotic ones and the first one that we are going to talk about is Oolong.
