drank Genmai Cha by Takaokaya
6 tasting notes

Not the best green tea ever, but certainly one of my favorite Japanese green tea in tea bags. For loose leaf, I would recommend Hibiki-an green tea—but for tea bags for the office or travel, these are quite good and also convenient to use. The brewed tea is full flavored, because each tea bag is sealed in a foil packet for freshness and the tea is not whole leaves but very tiny broken leaves and green tea powder. So, overall, I recommend these for office and travel, but not necessarily if you are looking for something special to brew at home. (This review is for their small paper tea bags, not the larger nylon style tea bags).
