Comparing the color of the brewed liquor of Touch Organic Green and Clipper Organic Green, I find that the Touch Organic is a paler gold, veering toward green, while the Clipper is a pure gold, closer to brown than to green.

The tastes are different, too. Clipper Organic Green has a slightly grassier taste, and seems more baked than steamed. I am no longer sure that Touch Organic is a bancha, as I had opined before. I’m just not sure anymore, partly because I’ve imbibed several banchas of late, and so I have been reminded what a pure bancha tastes like.

My latest guess is that Touch Organic is a blend of various teas from China. Perhaps there is some Chinese bancha in the mix, but now I feel that there probably also is some Chun Mee or something along those lines.

So which do I prefer? I have more left in the Clipper glass than the Touch glass as of right now. The grassy quality of the Clipper today really reminds me of darjeeling, and they did say that they source their teas both from Hunan province in China and from South India. Hmmm is Darjeeling in the south of India? I’d better go check. Be back in a jiffy…

Okay, Darjeeling is in West Bengal, which is not in the south. Anyway, there is Indian tea in the Clipper, but not in the Touch Organic. In the end, I find that both are perfectly potable blends. It’s a tie! Honestly, I attached a 72 to Clipper before coming to Touch, only to find that I had also given Touch a 72! For organic grocery store greens, both are a steal and quite decent for filter bag brews.

This is my go-to green tea because it is 100% organic. I love the taste, even when steeped very strong.
I also have used this tea to make cosmetics such as toners and face masks and It worked quite well.
The only downfall to this tea I would say is that it is a bagged tea – I prefer loose leaf teas.

Pretty average stuff—a friend’s mother gave me two teabags from this box, and I was pleased just to have tea over Thanksgiving break.
Not bad.

I found this tea at Marshalls (sister store to TJ Maxx), at the low price of $5.99 for 100 bags, what a deal! I picked up a box of the Organic Green, as well as the Organic Oolong and brought them both to share with the office.

I’m happy that the tea is certified USDA Organic, and comes in an unbleached teabag. My happiness ended once I brewed up a cup.

The brewed tea looks more brown than green, the color of a fish-tank that somebody forgot to clean.

It doesn’t really smell or taste like much of anything. Hot water? The inside of my ceramic mug? I get a little bit of bitter and tannins, but that’s it.

The box is stamped “Consume before Dec 6, 2016”, which is nearly 3 years away, but it tastes old. The flavor lacks all honey or fruit notes that I expect from green tea.

I used 2 tea bags the first time, I’ll try 3 bags next time, to see if I can tease out more flavor, but my expectations are fairly low.

This is an unoffensive but unremarkable bagged green tea. I guess I got what I paid for.

I imagine I’m getting the antioxidant benefits of green tea, and probably the caffeine, but I certainly won’t drink this one for the taste of it.

Update: I tried brewing 3 bags, plus 2 more from the first steeping, for a total of 5 tea bags in my mug. I got more bitter and more tannins, but still no flavor. I still have 95 bags left, so I might try using cooler water next time, but my expectations are pretty low.

Found this At Winners 100 bags for 6 bucks and you get what you pay for i usally shy away from bagged teas and this was a reminder as to why, i need to drink this as part of a new diet and this seemed like a practical solution to keep in my purse just in case.

taste is fine nothing great but not bad either, just a plain old green tea.
