Green tea has loads of health benefits, and is slimming, nonetheless. Brew your Fruity Pebbles (or the green blend or your choice) right for the very best flavor.

Just like we’re picky about the ingredients that go into our blends, green tea is picky about the way it is brewed, so here’s a quick how-to:

Some Like it Hot – Green tea? Not so much. These blends are best brewed at about 180o F. What? You can’t tell water’s temperature just by looking at it? Toss an ice cube into your boiling water to bring that temperature down and brew your tea right.

Need a Babysitter? – Probably not, but green tea likes attention. It brews quickly, just 1-3 minutes. Give it too much attention however, aka letting it brew past 3 minutes, and it gets bitter. Treat green tea like an angsty teen, keep an eye out, but don’t be a helicopter parent.

Take Home the Trophy – Hey, look at that! You’ve made Green tea! Enjoy it, and reap the rewards of a job well done.

We encourage singing here at Tiesta Tea. Singing in the shower, at your desk, in the car – everywhere! So go ahead and start belting out “Forever Young” while you brew up a cup of white tea. You’ll see why in a minute.

Attack your risk of heart attack:
Polyphenols are antioxidant powerhouses found abundantly in white and green teas. These guys keep your blood vessels flexible and combat clotting so that you can strengthen your shield against heart attacks.

Decrease your chances of developing diabetes:
Oxidative damage is often caused by high-fat diets, lack of physical exercise and high blood sugar. Again, call in the polyphenol troop! Polyphenols in green and white tea counteract oxidative damage and fight off free radicals that instigate diseases like diabetes.

Sucker Punch Your Risk of Stroke:
Catechins found in white and green teas have a crazy ability to cross the blood-brain barrier easier than other antioxidants. Their antioxidant strength allows them to fend off inflammation, reduce risk of neurodegenerative diseases and prevent cognitive decline. With these super powers, you can stand up against your risk of stroke.

So in your shower, office or car, you’ll can sing for eternity!
