At my local organic grocery store, with practically an entire aisle of teas to choose from, this is my favorite cheap bagged green tea.
I’m a fan of the Newman’s Own brand. I’ve found their products are generally high quality, and I like them for being green and donating 100% of their profits to various educational and charitable organizations.
When I don’t have time to hassle with loose leaf brewing, this is a fine choice for green tea.
It is especially forgiving of accidental over-steeping or using water that is too hot.
The flavor is fairly mild (double-bag for stronger results), with flavors of honey and malt in addition to the classic green-tea flavor. This isn’t world class green tea, but it is totally drinkable, affordably priced, and nicely satisfies my green-tea cravings.
I tried the green tea today. First steep was about 2:30sec with pre-boiling water. The taste is meh. Could be worse, but could certainly be better. A bit bitter. Next brew I’ll try 2 min and see how it goes. The smell isn’t bad though. I just wish I had the choice where I shop to buy a 20bag box instead of the 40bag box I got.
