Green Tea (With Milk) Recipe

There are certain misconceptions regarding the consumption of green tea. People feel that green tea is not as beneficial as regular black or herbal one. We recently wrote an article on if green tea is good with milk.

What is Green Tea With Milk?

Green tea and milk is a classic combination that’s been enjoyed in many parts of the world. The sweet, creamy taste of milk balances out the naturally bitter flavor of green tea while also providing an extra dose of nutrients to your body.

Some people like to add sugar or honey to their green tea, but we recommend trying it without any sweeteners first so you can really taste the tea.

Green tea has anti-inflammatory properties, so it’s great for soothing a sore throat or easing stomach discomfort. The antioxidants in green tea may also help prevent cancer and other diseases, as well as keep your heart healthy by reducing cholesterol levels. Green tea is a great way to stay healthy, and it tastes great too!

Ingredients

  • cups of water
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 1 bag of green tea

Instruction

  1. Pour a cup of boiling water into your teapot. Make sure that it is not too hot, or else the milk will curdle!
  2. Add one teaspoon of loose leaf green tea per 8 ounces of hot water or 2 teaspoons per 4-ounce cup.
  3. Let the tea steep for 2 to 3 minutes, then strain it into a mug or cup and add milk to taste.

Tips

Making green tea with milk can be a bit of a challenge. Here are some tips that will help you make the best cup of tea you’ve ever had!

1. Get the right amount of leaf to water

You want to use one teaspoon of leaf per 8oz cup of water, so if you’re making a large pot, adjust accordingly. You don’t want to add too much leaf, or else it will become bitter, but you also don’t want too little because it won’t extract all the good stuff from your leaves.

2. Don’t boil the water

Some people think boiling water is best for green tea, but this isn’t true at all! Boiling water destroys some of the nutrients in tea leaves, so instead, just bring your water to a boil and let it sit for about 30 seconds before pouring it into your mug and adding your leaves (or tea bag).

3. Use organic milk if possible

Many organic pints of milk are fortified with vitamins A and D, which are good for your bones and other body parts (and may help prevent cancer). The downside is that they often contain carrageenan—a seaweed-based stabilizer known as “nature’s plastic” that has been linked to inflammation and digestive problems.

Storage

Green tea is one of the most popular beverages in the world, and it can be prepared in a variety of ways. If you’ve read our guide to how to brew green tea, you know that there are many factors to consider when brewing your own cup. The storage method for your green tea is no different.

The most important thing to remember when storing green tea is that it should be kept in an airtight container at room temperature, away from light and moisture. When stored correctly, green tea will last for up to a year; if you wish to store your green tea longer than this, we recommend freezing it.

Another important consideration when storing green tea is milk—specifically whether or not milk should be added before or after refrigeration. Generally speaking, milk should be added after refrigeration because cold milk will affect the flavor of hot tea due to its high acidity level (which can alter the taste). However, if you’re planning on keeping milk-based drinks like lattes or cappuccinos refrigerated overnight, then feel free to add them before refrigeration as long as they are consumed within 24 hours of making them (or else they will spoil).

Reheating

Heating up green tea is a great way to enjoy it over the course of the day. The only thing is, you can’t just throw it in the microwave and forget about it.

Here’s what you need to know about reheating your green tea with milk:

  1. Heat the milk first. You don’t want it to be boiling when you add it to your cup of tea because that will make the cream separate from the liquid and create a layer at the top of your cup.
  2. Add hot water and let the tea brew for another minute or two before adding cold water to cool it down enough so that you can drink it comfortably without burning your tongue off or scalding yourself with steam when you take a sip! You can also just add cold water initially and let it sit while heating up (but don’t do both at once—it’ll mess up how long each one steeps).

Health Benefit

Green tea with milk is a great way to get the health benefits of green tea without the bitter taste. One study found that drinking a cup of green tea with milk lowered blood pressure and improved cholesterol levels. It also helps to keep your blood sugar levels steady, which can help you avoid diabetes.

Green tea contains antioxidants, which are important for your overall health and well-being. The antioxidants in this green tea can also help reduce inflammation and may even protect against certain types of cancer. Drinking green tea with milk also gives you an extra dose of calcium, which is good for your bones and teeth.
