From Kirkland Signature

Kirkland Signature Green Tea is made with Sencha Green Tea from Japan’s lush tea plantations, known for producing some of the best teas in the world. In keeping with Japanese tradition, Kirkland Signature Green Tea is gently steamed, rolled and then dried. This minimal processing stops the oxidation and preserves the freshness, aroma and color of the tea leaf.

Matcha, a green tea powder made from specially harvested leaves is added to enhance flavor and taste.

I received this complementary teabag while in an office waiting room. It was fairly bitter and very grassy. Not something I’d ever want to have again. It’s even worse than Lipton hot tea. Blech.

Does my inability to enjoy cheap, grocery store brand, bagged teas make me a tea snob? If so, I’m totally okay with that. :P

Cavocorax

I’m totally ok with that too. :P

We’ve been keeping a box of this in the cabinet for a long time now, and I never reviewed it as a hot tea (that I recall), but what I have been doing lately is steeping it cold, and the results are much better than the hot results.

I put 8 bags into a 3 quart vessel with tepid water, and stash it in the fridge over night.

The result is bright and green and that vegetal quality which is so great in expensive green tea and so lousy in cheap green tea is very muted here.

As I drink through the bottle, I keep adding back water (the tea bags are still in there) and I just keep drinking it down until the results seem to be getting thin, at which point I stop adding water. I probably get a gallon or two of green tea out of these 8 bags.

As refreshing as lemonade or sweet tea, but without the sugar, in Houston’s crushing Summer heat and humidity.

Iced 8 min or more

I have a huge jar full of individually packaged bagged tea. I remember this one was a favorite before loose leaf.

I totally dislike when I open the package and I get sprayed with matcha. Taste? ehhh, kinda stale, though this has to be pretty old. The silk plastic tea bag I can see the tea looks like grainy mush. Oh, i’m spoiled from loose leaf. Snooty owl!

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.

If anyone doesn’t mind asking (cause we don’t have any Costcos around here), what does a box of 100 tea bags cost there? Many thanks in advance!!!

Saroyan

I think it was around 25 dollars, not bad…

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.

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!

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.

This is my travel tea. It carries easier and better since it is prepackaged into little green pouches and tastes better than any other packaged green tea.
I personally prefer quality loose leaf green tea but this one works in a pinch. The taste is a bit grainy and grassy but there are the hints of that sweet taste that makes green tea so darn good!
Served hot, unsweetened or cold, unsweetened.
