How to make a perfect cup of green tea

A cup of comforting Nokcha

I know, I know, you’re busy! But, I also know just how important it is to stay hydrated throughout the day. This year, my challenge to you is to ditch dehydrating coffee or carbonated drinks and to hydrate by drinking Lahloo green teas. Studies show that anti-oxidants in green tea boast myriad benefits including anti-ageing, lowering cholesterol, strengthening the immune system and supporting the digestive system. Sipped in China and Japan for centuries, green tea is an elixir for life.

Utterly revitalising, uplifting and tasty; green tea is quick, simple and easy to enjoy, at home and at work, and just 1 teaspoon of green tea leaves will keep you hydrated and refreshed all day. At just 4 pence per cup* you’ll save yourself pennies too!

So, how do you make green tea? Follow these steps and you’ll soon be enjoying a rare moment’s peace while you prepare and sip your green tea:

♥  use 1 teaspoon of our green tea per person

♥  make your green tea in a mug (good quality leaves will sink to the bottom), a small teapot, in a tea infuser cup or in a pot with a large infuser (a Forlife teapot like this for example)

♥  never use boiling water,  you’ll burn the delicate leaves and get a bitter, unpleasant cup of green tea.

♥  simply infuse using water off the boil (the optimal temperature for our green teas is 70-75 degrees) so the leaves unfurl to release their unique aromas and tastes. This slow unfurling creates the perfect cup of tea.

♥  only infuse the tea for 1 – 1.5 minutes

♥  always refill your teapot/tea cup with hot water and enjoy the multiple infusions our fabulous green teas give you.

♥  to make a delicious, sweet and refreshing iced tea, simply infuse our green tea leaves in cold water for at least 8 hours.

Now you can see how easy it is, I hope you’ll be inspired to take a leaf out of our book and introduce 5 cups of green tea into your everyday life.

(*based on 5 infusions per 1 teaspoonful of leaves)
