I had low expectations, but this set the bar even lower than previously believed possible. The tea was extremely vegetative to the exclusion of all other possible flavors. Multiple infusions did nothing for it either.

Mother Nature gave us a wonderful gift when she packed powerful antioxidants into green tea.
But not all green tea tastes the same. To make all natural Green Tea, Bigelow uses only the finest quality tea that has been grown in higher-elevation gardens and gently processed to bring out the tea’s natural, smooth flavor. Each tea bag is then wrapped in its own protective pouch to seal in all the wonderful flavor and freshness.
All natural Bigelow Green Tea takes green tea enjoyment to a whole new level. It’s a great way to help you relax and enjoy a healthier lifestyle.

It’s tea. That’s about all to be said for this one. It’s not a bad green to accompany food without getting in the way of it, but certainly nothing to write home about. I have to admit it makes me a little nostalgic though, as it reminds me of some of the cheap green teas I enjoyed as a student in Japan. I wouldn’t seek out this particular brand, but I certainly wouldn’t say no if offered a cup.
Rating this as an average between the bags (bleh) and the K-cups for my Keurig machine (tolerable).
The bagged version of this didn’t taste like anything special to me – just a typical light flavored green tea. We had this in our kitchen, but most of us tea drinkers have decided it isn’t for us.
The K-cup version seemed to have a stronger “green” taste to it, which was acceptable enough for me to drink but I don’t plan on ordering another set of Bigelow Green Tea K-cups again.
