Green tea better if I overbrew it?!

Question: Green tea better if I overbrew it!?
Is my green tea better for my health if I let the leaves soak in the hot water for a long time until the tea is darker!?Www@FoodAQ@Com

you could do that, but it will taste very very bitter!. And I don't believe you will get any more benefit from steeping it longer!. some green teas need only 30 seconds of steep time!.

If you want to get a tiny bit extra benefit, try squeezing the tea bag a little bit, but by no means leave the tea bag in there longer than it should be!.Www@FoodAQ@Com

the taste is just alot heavier!.!.!. i like mine brewed for 2 min!. (its light) with skim milk and 1 sweet-n-lowWww@FoodAQ@Com
