drank Green by Higgins & Burke
55 tasting notes

It’s very hard to do green tea in a bag. Green tea is so much less forgiving than black tea, breaking it up and putting it in a bag makes it so much harder to brew a good cup that isn’t bitter. On that note, I must give this product credit. This tea brewed with no hint of bitterness (using a cooler temperature, as one would do for other green teas). That said, this tea does have quite a strong lemongrass-lemon flavor, and that gives these tea bags some latitude. I tasted much more citrus than I did green tea. That’s not necessarily bad, if that’s what one wants. The main issue I see is that this tea is marketed as straight green tea, when it’s really a flavored product, first and foremost. As flavored green tea in a teabag goes, this is okay, but it’s not the best I’ve had.

I love tea, books, beautiful aromas and bubble baths. The Pacific Northwest provides the sort of weather that makes tea-drinking a very cozy experience.
