GREEN TEA DRINKER HERE! BUT I WAS WONDERING

Good-Morning Ladies!
I'm a "Green Tea" drinker. I have up to 12 cups a day! Someone told me once that one of these days I was going to float away cause I'm always drinking tea when they see me LOL!
So any way I was wondering what your opinion on the following: is their a differance when you boil the water on the stove & pour the water over the tea bag vs heating up the water in a microwave? The reason I was wondering is that yesterday when I went to the laundrymat I went into 7-11 tobuy a cup of tea & I noticed how much draker my tea was after I let it steep for 5 minutes compared to when I make it in the microwave it's so light after steep for 5 minutes. So I'm wondering in order to get the perks of drinking tea which is better/ healthier?

That's interesting.  Was it the same brand of tea?

Microwaving does change the food and drinks it nukes. There's allot of research out about the micro wave. Thus the difference when you use the tea pot vs. the microwave

I prefer steeping in the tea pot, but i'l heat up water in the microwave if I'm trying to hurry. The pot always does a better job.

I prefer boiling the water over microwaving it.  Tea tastes better with the fresh boiled water as opposed to being microwaved.  I only microwave when I'm in a hurry.  If you a Keurig, you can also get the hot water from there as well.

It has to do with the steeping. If you use the microwave to heat up the water first (to the point of boiling or close to it.. takes about 7 minutes) and then add the tea, and let steep for 5 minutes it might be a little darker as well.

I've never had dark green tea... I never use the microwave to make it
