I am a huge green tea fan and this is the only one that I keep going back to. Call it my staple green tea. You can find a bag or two in my purse, my work desk, and even my gym bag.

Only available at costco, this box is huge (100 packets each) but somehow within 4 months, I’m down to my last 20 bags.

During the cooler months it is perfect as a hot tea, the tea itself turns into a light green. These types of green teas are my favorite because they remind me of the ones at Japanese restaurants and those are the ones I find that taste best.

During the warmer months I steep it in cold water for about 5 minutes before drinking. Gives off less caffeine and it’s really refreshing!

Taste wise, it’s light! Sort of sweet but not really. Make sure you brew it like how the package says. I’ve brewed it for longer (by accident, in hot water for about 4 mins) and it turned out slightly bitter.

It’s the best bagged green tea I’ve encountered.

Preparation

Bio

A casual tea consumer that typically enjoys plain teas (sencha/genmaicha green tea is a daily must have) and the occasional chai and london fogs but is willing to discover new flavors.

All thanks to DAVIDsTEA, I’ve rediscovered how fun tea consumption can be! So now I’m using Steepster as my own personal tea diary.

I usually try flavored teas straight first and then in a soy/almond latte with a tiny bit of sweetener (agave or honey). If it’s a fruit type tea, then after the initial straight taste test, I’d do it iced with a bit of sweetener.

My Aerolatte is my favorite tea tool. It’s cow printed too!
