Light Flavored Teas
Sometimes, you don’t want flavor to dominate your drinking experience. That’s why light flavored teas are a must-have in any cupboard. The “lightness” of a tea is determined by how many tannins it has when it is brewed. But it doesn’t stop there; the lightness of tea can be impacted during the brewing process. Even naturally light flavored teas can be turned into a more bold flavor by concentrating a brew.
To attain a light tea, you want to make sure of the following:
- You start with a naturally light tea such as a white tea, green tea or herbal tea
- You don’t overbrew
- You mix with the right ratio of water
For the most part, you’ll find that green, white and herbal teas make the best choice for those looking for a light flavor. Black, Oolong and other teas often have a more complex and bold flavor that light tea drinkers might not enjoy.
