Green Tea Shopping Tip

Look for high-quality green teas in Asian markets or specialty tea stores. Loose-leaf blends tend to be higher quality than grocery store brands.

Green Tea Cooking Tip

Most green teas require a lower temperature water than black teas, which typically require boiling water. Invest in a thermometer to ensure that the water you use on delicate green tea is the right temperature.
