Picture of Green Tea with Lemon

Green Tea with Lemon from Bigelow Tea

Style: Green Tea with Lemon – Region: ?????

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 4/10
Jan. 18th, 2017

Meh. Not impressed. You are better off brewing your favorite green tea and squeezing fresh lemon into it. I do not care for lemon in my green tea - unless it is iced. That said, Bigelow is inexpensive (and in my office - provided for free - in bags and K-cups) and accessible. An average, inoffensive green tea.

Ginger Peach Green Tea from Stash Tea

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: ?????

73 / 100 Aroma: 9/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 6/10
Sep. 30th, 2016

Inexpensive - around $3 - $4 for a box of 25 tea bags. Frut and peachy fragrance that brews up quickly. Not nearly as good as Republic of Teas version - but very inexpensive and good when I can't get Republic's. My 11 year old loves fruuity teas (Peach and Pineapple especially). Some ginger notes - but not harsh. ...

Tea of Inquiry (Loose) from Republic of Tea

Style: Genmaicha – Region: Japan

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 8/10
Mar. 14th, 2016

For a genmaicha (which I enjoy in spring/summer) I really love this one - probably my favorite roasted-toasted brown-rice note-filled tea. Even good over ice - and unsweetened for a true grain-filled experience. I actually love this one - but if you are not a Genmaicha lover - you may not want to try this one. More ...

Cherry Marzipan (Skin Smart) from Tea Forte

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: Blend

Mar. 14th, 2016

Uber-sweet - and a bit cloying for me - but my kid loves it for whatever reason and the packaging (which makes it pricey) is cute and giftable. With Tea Forte - it's all about the packaging and sometimes the actual teas are "just OK". A few are good. You have to try and see which you prefer. Expensive, but giftable...

Brown Rice Tea Genmai-cha (16 ct.) from Yamamotoyama

Style: Genmaicha – Region: Japan

60 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 5/10
Mar. 14th, 2016

Super cheap and - if you can get it (try H-Mart or other Asian grocers) it's a good bagged Genmaicha option. Refreshing in summer with a roasty-toasty aroma. Grassy notes - and also a sweetness (I do not get a "Honey Smacks" note).

Can even be OK over ice.

Genmaicha from Harney and Sons

Style: Genmaicha – Region: Japan

50 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5 Overall: 4/10
Mar. 14th, 2016

Roasty-Toasty but not worth the price - there are better (and also worse - see my other Gen Mai Cha reviews) versions available. If you are a Gen mai lover (Roasted rice/grain notes) this is a decent choice but no holy grail. Very nice in summer.

Gen Mai Cha from Two Leaves Tea

Style: Genmaicha – Region: China

53 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5 Overall: 5/10
Mar. 14th, 2016

Just OK - and I did not get the "Honey Smacks" note - but there is an odd sweetness to this rice/grain tea. I generally love Gen Mai Cha - but 2 leaves version is just fair. Fortunately it is not too expensive - and I was able to try it at a local coffee/tea shop so now I know not to buy a whole box. Not bad - but t...

Jan. 17th, 2016

I enjoy Bigelow teas over, say, Lipton or Salada - cheap - about $3 for a box of 24 bags. The green ones (Classic or flavored) are good.

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: Blend

73 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5 Overall: 8/10
Jul. 9th, 2014

I love this tea - fruity (berry notes) and a hint of mint. Excellent iced - no need to sweeten - but I sometimes add a bit of splenda. A terrific summer treat. So popular now that Starbucks makes a "clone" using sugary syrups. I like to brew it myself at home from the Teavana store (pricey stuff). Even my kid will...

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: ?????

Jan. 30th, 2014

Eh. Meh. Maybe I am just not a Tulsi (Holy Basil) girl. I love it in Curries. I love it on chicken - but maybe not as a morning cuppa. Meanwhile It tastes OK - not great and not awful, I think I will need to try a few more tulsi teas before I make a final determination - but at first sip - I'm not lovin' it.

Jul. 18th, 2013

I really enjoyed this over ice at a local coffee place. It was a very hot July day and I needed some iced tea. Not alot of sweetening required as there is a natural fruity-sweetness to the pomegranate. Lovely.

Jun. 7th, 2013

There are many, many bagged green teas that are far better than this one - but for Lipton - this is not bad. A bit lemon-pledgey in it's scent - tastes ok. Not bad and not great. Just OK.

May. 29th, 2013

Sorry, Lipton - but this fakey-honeyish pseudo green bagged tea is not good. Yikes. I had this (free) at a hospitality station where there were a few kinds of teas to choose from (all Lipton) and this seemed OK at the time. Bad call.

I tried it hot and doctored it up with a touch of splenda - but I would never ...

Zen Filterbags from Tazo Tea

Style: Flavored Green Tea – Region: Zhejiang, China

73 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5 Overall: 7/10
May. 24th, 2013

Tazo is carried in Starbucks and is very available and moderately priced. Zen has a green tea base with notes of mint and cintrus. Very good over ice. A solid pick for every-day green tea. I actually prefer this to the China Green Tips (the plain green Tazo that Starbucks carries). Both are good in a pinc (airport,...

A very tasty tea with fruity notes and smells great in the bag and while steeping. No sweetener needed. A fave for sure! (But a bit pricey). NOT grassy - very fruity and not so green.

I live this but not as much as some of the otther ROT fruit-teas. I love the green grassy notes and smooth drinkability especially over ice. Smells fruity, berry-like and sweet. Fun to try.

I love this bagged tea - yes, I know there are even better out there - but I keep comingback to ROT and their ginger peach green and black varieties. Great iced or hot. Subtly ginger-y and sweet without adding sugar.

It's OK but not a holy grail. Zippy with Ginger but the green underneath is Tazo's ubiquitous grassy/mild green-generic. OK. Not great.

The genmaicha is relatively grassy tasting with a bit of bitterness - but is still pleasant enough and certainly cheap enough to enjoy regularly. Good but not a holy grail.
