The nice thing about working at your school through commencement is that you get to reclaim things abandoned by people who have already left, and that’s how I happened upon a bag of this. I do believe it’s one of the best bagged green tea I’ve had: a lovely grassy sencha with a slight sweetness. I’ve had (and am biased toward) more intensely flavored sencha, but it’s nice to have something that’s a bit lighter.
Some of the comments indicate that this can be bought cheaply in bulk from certain stores, so I’ll definitely be keeping an eye out for it!
Who says good tea doesn’t come in bags? This is one of my two favorite green teas. It’s slightly sweet with bright green tea flavors without any of the usual green tea astringency, even if you steep it for a very long time. It’s best to brew a small cup with the bag to bring out the opacity from the matcha. It also comes in boxes of 100 individually wrapped bags for about $20.
This comes in a big 100 set at Costco, and it’s my go-to tea for travel. It’s not the greatest tea in the world, but as far as bagged teas go it’s one of my favorites. It’s a little watery, but it still has a little bit of that signature Japanese green tea flavor. This is actually an Ito En tea marketed under the Costco name Kirkland signature. I’m guessing it’s just the leftover fannings of Ito En’s bancha, so it’s not the highest quality but if you’re looking for cheap Japanese tea for traveling, then I recommend it.
Shopping at a Costco I stumbled on to this little treasure! It sold about 75 or a hundred packets of green tea and was sure to keep my stocks up for months! I just have to buy for mere 15$ than the usual 20 an ounce deal for the quality stuff. The price did not disappoint and the taste have not either! The tea tasted very vegeatal and grassy and will certainly raise my spirits up!
I think I go through a box every month. It’s just so good. But then again, I’m a huge fan of green tea.
I noticed that if you don’t follow the directions and use boiling water, it really does ruin the taste somewhat (I haven’t found this to be the case with all my other green teas for some reason). But if steeped properly, it’s just so so so good!!!
After every lunch and dinner meal, I finish off with a cup of this tea.
In the summer, I just get a 1L bottle of Dasani and put the bags in there and drink it all day to cool myself down (and I swear I lost 5lbs once because I did this).
Overall, my favourite tea – and that’s saying something since I have bags and bags and tins and tins of teas in my room. You know what I HATE though, they started cutting down on the matcha they add in… lame
As per usual at Costco this box of green tea comes in bomb shelter size. It’s almost a year’s worth of green tea. And yet it’s pretty good. The matcha has real nice sweetness to the tea. I tend to cut off the top of the tea bags and pretend its loose tea which seems to work just as well.
As a noob, my previous green tea experience was pretty much limited to chinese restaurant tea – sadness in a stainless-steel pot.
A friend gave me a few packets of this one day and it’s become my go-to tea for when I get desperate for a cuppa coffee. Best of all is that it’s yummy and doesn’t leave the taste of grass-clippings in your mouth.
All kidding aside, this tea is really good for those times when you need a quick energy boost and want it to taste good.
I have tried matcha previously and either it was not prepared correctly or that’s just the way it is but I didn’t like it one bit. Now this tea is a mix, so it’s not exactly the same thing, but I sort of like it. I followed the steeping instructions the first time and what I got is a smooth almost milky tasting beverage. I am trying longer steep time now and even if that makes it worse, I still find this to be an enjoyable tea. As far as bagged tea goes of course.
Picked up at Costco on whim, wasn’t expecting much; turned out to be some very good bag tea. Would highly recommend especially for the price ~$10 for 100 bags
I wasn’t expecting anything from this tea, but it completely surprised me. The best flavor I have ever gotten out of a bagged tea.
I was fairly surprised by this tea. I’m not really a matcha fan, but everyone I make this for (myself included) enjoys it. The instructions inform you to steep it for 30 seconds, which surprisingly is more than enough for my taste. I usually steep for about 20 seconds (in a small cup), add a splash of milk, and a smidge of honey for a light, smooth, and flavorful tea with a very slight matcha flavor.
I was hesitant to purchase this tea because it’s sold in such a large box (100-125 separately wrapped packets? Somewhere around there), but I know I’ll end up drinking every last one.
This remains the very best bagged green tea I have had the pleasure to experience. Amazingly available, and is never a disappointment when in need of a quick cup.
Last year my boyfriend bought a mountain-load of green tea from Costco. This tea is really easy to prepare. You need to steep the tea for 30 seconds in 176-degree water, remove the tea bag and add any sencha dust left over in the packet. It has a pleasant taste I’ve come to expect from Ito En—really cheap teas but doesn’t skimp out on flavor.
My parents, who are Costco devotees, turned me on to this one. It’s a staple for me, both at work and at home. Clean and deep taste, invigorating, and speedy to steep — just 30 seconds, then you shake in the tiny amount of matcha powder.
mm, made a great cup today. nice and smooth with plenty of flavor.
My favorite green tea that’s not loose leaf. Loose leaf green tea clearly pwns the bagged green tea. However, this little treasure-in-a-bag has helped me through many headaches, sore throats, and tummy aches. I also typically drink this about 30 minutes before working out—something about green tea speeding up your calorie-burning process.
