Expert Tips

Green tea differs from black tea in that its leaves are steamed and dried but not fermented. Scientific studies have shown that both green and black teas increase the body's antioxidant activity.

Plan on at least two glasses for each guest. Many times, guests put their glass down and pick up another one before the night is over.
