For basic green tea when you can’t afford the expensive organic stuff, I stick with Bigelow Green Tea.

“Green tea is pretty simple. It’s green tea. What makes ours so special is that we use only hand-picked tea from high elevation gardens and then we gently process it, bringing out that natural flavor people have been enjoying for centuries. Our tea is not harsh, not too grassy but smooth and very delicate…easy to drink and enjoy the whole cup.”

I oversteep this tea or use two bags in order to get a decent flavour out of it. It’s pleasant and very smooth. If I feel frisky, I’ll grab a bag of Oolong and steep them together for five minutes in an 8-ounce cup and add a drop or two of clover honey. I believe that honey and tea are God’s two greatest edible gifts and I rarely have one without the other.
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.
