Re: Steeping green tea over 3 minutes: is it bad for my health??

If you google "oversteeping tea benefits", there are claims that the health benefits increase when more antioxidants and caffeine are released from longer steeping. Livestrong has this article: https://www.livestrong.com/article/2851 ... eping-tea/

It may get more bitter from additional caffeine and tannins, but those things are not necessarily bad for you. I almost always oversteep, and I like the stronger taste. I guess it is individual choice.
