Higher-quality teas like gyokuro use more tea leaves and are steeped multiple times for short durations.Steeping too hot or too long results in the release of excessive amounts of tannins, leading to a bitter, astringent brew, regardless of initial quality.In a 2015 meta-analysis of such observational studies, an increase in one cup of green tea per day was correlated with a 5% lower risk of death from cardiovascular causes.Drinking green tea or taking green tea supplements decreases the blood concentration of total cholesterol (about 7 mg/d L), LDL cholesterol (about 2 mg/d L), and does not affect the concentration of HDL cholesterol.This aracha has yet to be refined at this stage, with a final firing taking place before blending, selection and packaging take place.The leaves in this state will be re-fired throughout the year as they are needed, giving the green teas a longer shelf-life and better flavor.Finally, each lot will be blended according to the blending order by the tasters and packed for sale.



In response, the governor of Shizuoka Prefecture, Heita Kawakatsu, stated: "there is absolutely no problem when they [people] drink them because it will be diluted to about 10 becquerels per kilogram when they steep them even if the leaves have 1,000 becquerels per kilogram;" a statement backed by tests done in Shizuoka.Steeping temperatures range from 61 °C (142 °F) to 87 °C (189 °F) and steeping times from 30 seconds to three minutes.Generally, lower-quality green teas are steeped hotter and longer while higher-quality teas are steeped cooler and shorter, but usually multiple times (2-3 typically).The brew’s taste is also affected by the steeping technique; two important ones are to warm the steeping container beforehand to prevent the tea from immediately cooling down, and to leave the tea leaf in the pot and gradually add more hot water during consumption.
