Matcha Green Tea Powder from Trader Joe's

Style: Matcha – Region: Japan

78 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Jun. 18th, 2019

This is pretty good matcha. Though I don’t normally like extra packing, the single serving sizes kept me from using excessive tea powder. The tea didn’t taste weak.

I am not particularly skilled at making matcha. I liked this one best with a little preheated milk and a little honey.

On the plus side, my two y...

Organic Sencha Tea from Trader Joe's

Style: Sencha – Region: Japan

70 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 4/5
Jun. 11th, 2019

This tea is not bad but it isn’t overwhelming. I generally prefer loose leaf anyway, as a cup of bagged tea often isn’t as strong as I like. It’s fairly easy to avoid bitterness in this tea, but it’s still good not to brew the tea too hot or too long — as is generally true for green teas. Not bad as a potenti...

Japanese Matcha + Green Tea from Matcha Love

Style: Green Tea – Region: Japan

76 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 5/5 Value: 3/5
Jun. 3rd, 2019

The bold print on the box says "matcha + green tea". The smaller print—green tea blend with matcha—is more correct. Each of the triangular clear sachets (not "tea bags" as we know them in paper form) contains a reasonable amount of finely chopped green tea leaves and just a pinch of matcha powder. Don't forget t...

Ultra Select Green Tea from Cain's

May. 15th, 2019

First off, thanks for the props on the backstory of this tea, Alex. It's a fascinating look into how brands bounce hither and yon. Somehow, someone under the Farmer Brothers umbrella still is making Cain's teas, and the ones I've had aren't duplicates of the corresponding Farmer Brothers products so far.

Pure Green Matcha Green Tea Blend from Salada

Style: Green Tea – Region: ?????

64 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
May. 4th, 2019

This combination of matcha and green tea was fairly non-descript. It wasn’t offensive, but it didn’t do much for me. Overbrewing does turn it a bit bitter, so be sure not to leave the bag in excessively. I still have more of the box, so I may update this entry if my opinion changes after a few tries.

Matcha Green Tea from Lipton Tea

Apr. 13th, 2019

This is the second tea I’ve tried that mixes a green tea with matcha powder in a teabag. It wasn’t bad! I enjoyed my second test more than my first. Like the Celestial Seasonings offering that mixes green tea with matcha powder, this tea is better than the average bagged cheap green tea I’ve tried, as it increase...

Green Tea Matcha from Celestial Seasonings

Style: Green Tea – Region: ?????

80 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 5/5
Apr. 7th, 2019

I’ve decided to try a few blends of matcha with other green tea and started with this brand. Given that I’ve never been overwhelmingly impressed with Celestial Seasonings, it was better than expected!

Though it cannot take the place of an actual matcha craving, the addition of matcha added a bit of sweetness and...

Mar. 21st, 2019

The dry tea is tiny, broken pieces, almost like fannings. I assume it's a lower grade, "everyday" tea. I use a metal tea ball with a tight mesh to brew loose tea and there's a ton of sediment at the bottom of my cup, which is distracting and a bit off-putting.

Brewing, the tea smells like seaweed with underripe appl...

Mar. 13th, 2019

This is a very slightly above-average, but not outstanding, bagged green tea available at a price that's hard to top for a non-store brand (about $8 for a 100-count box online, or at stores such as Wal-Mart). Fortunately, I procured a fairly new, sealed 100-ct box at an estate sale for a buck, so *my* value was unrepr...

A very good value for a bagged green (organic). Branding is "snazzier" than the traditional bagged bigelow teas. We have "Steep" in out office and it is a nice upgrade from el-cheapo Lipton.

I picked up this tea at a grocery store on a whim. The tea bags appear filled with dust. There is much better tea out there, but this is drinkable if nothing else is available. I may have to bring this to work to share with folks who might like it more. :-)

Earthy, fiery, Herby and gets better with each steep. The green leaves open up and the aroma unwraps fully by the third cup. Tried this at Dobra tea, loved every sip!

I ended up overnight in the Detroit suburbs for work and found this tea in a Japanese grocery store.

The dry leaves are broken up into much smaller pieces than the Japanese senchas that I'm used to. It's very pungent, though, smelling of cut hay and alfalfa.

Adding the water releases just a ton of aroma. The colo...

This tea somewhat flummoxed me from before I poured the first drop down my esophagus, to the last aftertaste. For starters, what is it? There's no "Premium Green Tea" available on Bigelow's main website, just something called "Green Tea (Certified Organic)". Then on RateTea, there already was an "Organic Pure Green ...

A colleague left this on the "freebie" table at work, so naturally I indulged some. One of the best green teas I've had so far, this offering competes well with a couple of bagged generic (unbranded) green-tea specimens containing a little matcha powder that my daughter brought back from her honeymoon in Japan.

A good inexpensive Chinese green. Fairly sharp and peppery on the palate. The earthy, leafy aroma is quite nice. You could certainly do worse at this price.

The flavor of this tea is quite mild, but pleasant. There's a nice bitterness on the sides of the tongue and just enough astringency to feel a bit "fuzzy". There's a hint of cabbage or broccoli flavor with a hint of spiciness. This tea's a bit sweeter than other green teas.

I'm tasting this tea alongside several oth...

I occasionally drink the decaffeinated version of this tea because it still tastes a bit like green tea. It turns out that that's exactly how the caffeinated version tastes—a bit like green tea. There's some vegetal freshness and a little grassy bitterness on the back of the tongue, but that's pretty much it. If you ...

As the other reviewers mentioned, ignore the directions. I prepared the tea using 8 ounces of 175°F water for four minutes (which is a bit longer than is generally suggested for green teas, but I find I like it that way).

The tea in the square, nylon bag is chopped, but not as finely as most bagged tea and is mixed...

Even though this isn't a Stash tea, it was well stashed—just a couple packets jammed discreetly in the middle of a bunch of bags of Bigelow Green at a conference, and only the first morning. Fortunately I noticed and grabbed them: one for there, one to bring home.

I'm not much for detecting subtleties, and pro...

After being disappointed with Organic Herbie's other teas, I was a bit apprehensive about trying this, but I turned out to like it a surprising amount. I also notice an inconsistency in the marketing: the description says it is grown in the Wuyi mountains, which are located in Fujian province, but the website says that...
