You know that tea keeps you warm from the inside out all winter long, but what about the health benefits of tea? That cuppa has some powerful medicinal properties!
Choosing the right tea for your health is only half of the equation, though. A good friend of mine is a self-proclaimed “tea nerd,” and she has hipped me to more detailed information on how to properly brew your tea. Different teas don’t just have different ideal steeping times. Did you know that there are also ideal water temperatures that help bring out the taste and the health benefits of tea? Teavana has a handy chart (it’s toward the bottom of this page) that shows you the temperature and brewing time for different tea varieties. It’s definitely worth looking over.
