How long should green tea steep for health benefits? We recommend steeping for 3 minutes and then tasting every 30 seconds to achieve the best results. The amount of time the tea steeps directly impacts the flavor. Green tea develops bitter flavors the longer it steeps so make sure to pay attention to your steeping time.
Why should you not squeeze a tea bag? Bitterness. The liquid that remains trapped inside the tea bag has even higher instances of tannic acid than what is able to steep out of the bag on it’s own. By squeezing the tea bag, you inadvertently release these tannic acids into your tea and in turn create a far more bitter, sour and acidic cup of tea.

Is black tea or green tea better for you? The bottom line. Green and black tea provide similar health benefits, including for your heart and brain. While green tea may contain more powerful antioxidants, the evidence does not strongly favor one tea over the other. Both contain the stimulant caffeine and L-theanine, which has a calming effect.
