This is my go-to at work, and I drink it all day long.

Got a tough bit of code I need to mull over? Green tea break.
The boss just got off a stressful call? Better brew some teas.
Just finished my tea? Make another.

The little moment of zen you get when handling the delicate green tea flavours of a Clipper bag is indispensable for someone with less time to waste. It’s obviously not as involved as preparing loose leaves or even a matcha, but you still have to be careful not to draw a harsh or dry taste from the bag.

Today I left the kettle water to cool for about 1 minute 30, and gently placed the teabag in the mug after the water. You don’t get many distinct aromas from the ethically-chosen leaves before or after wetting them, but there’s a definite green tea character. It smells slightly sharper than the Twinings green teabags.

I leave it to cool a little before drinking, and again there’s nothing too special that I can remember today, just a slightly bland green tea flavour, slightly bitter, but still easy to drink.

To anyone looking for a green tea to buy by the barrel, Clipper is a good cheap choice. It is by no means a bad green tea, but it’s not the best either.
