If you are aware of this already I apologize. Green tea needs to steep
in hot but not boiling water, otherwise the leaves cook and the tea is
bitter. Water at about 180 degrees is good. I heat the water in a pot
and use a candy thermometer to gauge the temperature. The tea can
steep longer at this temp, 3-5 mins or more, depending on your taste.
