Organic Pure Green Tea from Bigelow Tea

Style: Green Tea – Region: ?????

67 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Sep. 30th, 2016

Nothing offensive about this reasonably prices and ORGANIC tea that you can pick up in a grocery store for under $5. Convenient bags. No issues.

Japanese Green Tea from Kirkland Signature / Costco

Style: Green Tea – Region: Japan

40 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 1/5
Aug. 17th, 2016

Meh. I had this at a SPA no less - I guess they buy their green tea bags in bulk from Costco. While this was drinkable, it was by no means enjoyable. On a cold day I guess it beats a cut of hot water? But so weak and non-descript tasting.

Meh.

There are better options out there.
Sometimes, in an attempt to s...

Organic Pinhead Gunpowder Green Tea from Stash Tea

Style: Gunpowder Green Tea – Region: Jiangxi, China

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Aug. 17th, 2016

I am a big fan of pinhead gunpowder (Green) tea - and it is fun to watch it steep/brew as all the little balls unfurl. This one by Stash is moderately priced. Pinhead is never (or not that I have seen) sold in bags/sachets as you need it loos to watch it work its magic.

I drink this neat - (Hot) or possibly with a...

Green Tea from Wegmans

Style: Green Tea – Region: ?????

50 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
Jul. 21st, 2016

Blah. This is another cheapie-green tea that will do in a pinch - or during times of desperation. There are way better teas on the market. Super cheap. Taste moderately vegetal and green - a good bit of astringency. Must be allowed to steep for 3-4 minutes.

Basic. Cheap. Fair.

Organic Green Tea from Trader Joe's

37 / 100 Aroma: 4/10 Flavor: 2/5 Value: 1/5
Jul. 21st, 2016

This is a Mediocre, easy to find (at every TJ's) green tea with a slight "green grassy" taste. Not horrible, but not delicious. There are way better teas (some cheaper, some more expensive) that simply taste fresher and better.

Seemed a little stale tasting - even though I just bought it. Well, at least I did not...

Gunpowder Green from Harney and Sons

Style: Gunpowder Green Tea – Region: Zhejiang, China

57 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 2/5
Mar. 14th, 2016

This is an easy-drinking green tea with grassy notes an a faint whiff of herbs (I dunno - but I get an herbaceous quality if you let it steep long enough.) Must steep at least 3 minutes as it brews up "pale". Good hot and OK on ice. I live this one better hot. Super-mild. As with all Harney & Sons - beautifully pac...

Emperor's Clouds and Mist Green Tea from Teavana

70 / 100 Aroma: 8/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 2/5
Jan. 18th, 2016

Too expensive to buy by the bag ($2.39 plus tax in Starbucks for a Tall) but very good green tea and worth buying a box.

Green but not grassy, light and fresh tasting. Easy to drink hot.

China Gunpowder from Tea Forte

67 / 100 Aroma: 6/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 3/5
Nov. 23rd, 2015

I like Tea Forte - and their packaging is excellent. But it's what's inside that sachet that counts - and this Green "Gunpowder" style tea is delicious with a mild, (generic?) grassy flavor that I happen to enjoy. Is it the best green ever? Not by a long-shot - but it is solid and easy to drink (I do it unsweetened,...

Jun. 20th, 2014

So overpriced - but very good Matcha - with a bright green taste - a bit grassy but not bad. Elegantly packaged as is Teavana's Style - you pay for all that packaging.

Green Tea from Lipton Tea

Style: Green Tea – Region: ?????

57 / 100 Aroma: 5/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
Feb. 26th, 2014

Eh. Meh.
It's better than their black tea - but that's not saying much. I get this for free at the office - and I would pick this over Lipton Black (The tea that jolts like cawfee) any day.

Inexpensive and drinkable - but there are plenty of better green teas out there - and some are only a tad more money.

57 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 3/5 Value: 3/5
May. 24th, 2013

A decent bagged tea available everywhere (and I mean EVERYWHERE) that Starbucks is served - offices, Barnes & Noble, airports, even the local library - I can get a quick cup of this in a pinch. Vegetal and green - a bit "dry" tasting - so I add sweetener sometimes. (For shame, I know!) I love green teas but this is j...

For a bagged tea this was fine - just as good as Tazo's China Green Tips and many others. Slightly vegetal/green qualities and very good hot.

Green Tea from Ten Ren Tea

Style: Green Tea – Region: ?????

70 / 100 Aroma: 7/10 Flavor: 4/5 Value: 4/5
May. 16th, 2013

For the price - you can't beat ten ren teabags for a quick earthy-green on the go. Grassy and green pepper notes (to my nose/palate) and a light to medium body after a generous 3-4 minute steep. Mild and easy to drink - and I drink this one hot (not iced) with a little sweetener like honey or stevia. (Gasp!)

May. 13th, 2013

I like the roasty-toasty notes of Hojicha - especially iced in summer after a meal of sushi or sashimi - it just makes me feel good. Ito-En is like the McDonald's o Tea in Japan but is less known in the USA. I used to love going to the flagship store in NYC but I think it ,may be gone now. Meanwhile - try Ito En t...

Meh. Typical green-tasting grassy green conveniently bagged, easily acquirable tea. Not a holy grail by any means - but I'll take this over a cuppa Lipton any day! And, yes, I had this in an old law firm I worked at years back. (Office tea!) And at cheap delis in Philly and NYC.
Oh - and now in 2014 we have this & ...

Overpriced - plus their NYC shop quickly opened and closed in a flash about 9 years ago - but this was fun to try. Grassy but not bitter. Smooth and easy to drink hot. Never tried it iced.
