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 Tea", but in much-different packaging; that one isn't on Bigelow's website either. I first got "Premium Green Tea" on an airplane, and later saw it at a hotel, both in mid/late 2018. Is "Premium" a repackaging of one or both of the other organic greens for food-service purposes? Beats me! Yet you can buy "Premium" directly on Amazon under two slightly different packaging designs. Marketing and branding can be confusing.

As for the tea itself, the dry-bag aroma was practically nonexistent (an experience I'm finding common to bagged green teas). A deep sniff, however, yielded a pleasant, somewhat rice-like and grassy aroma that translated well to the wet-bag and in-cup aromas, which were a notch stronger, and the taste itself, which was considerably stronger still. All aromas and the direct flavor were consistent and straightforward, just variable in intensity. I found the taste to be rather pleasant, and preferable to most other bagged greens from planes and hotels. The aftertaste, however, rather quickly became sticky, surprisingly bitter and musty, remarkably different from the flavor and aromas, and took many minutes to go away. Taking another sip or using mouthwash was the only quick fix.

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.
Update 2019: Look for Steep by Bigelow Organic Pure Green tea also. Good value for a bagged green.

Surprisingly, I found this one acceptably enjoyable. The tea was nothing dazzling, but it wasn't bitter (after steeping briefly) and I got two cups out of it. The second cup was weaker, but still decent. The fannings infuse quickly, so you don't need to keep the bag in for long. I found this in the cupboard of a friend.

Brewed for 4 minutes with water that had cooled well below boiling, it brews an opaque golden color.

Aroma is mostly flat. There's a hint of a very pleasant floral quality, but it's overshadowed by a cardboard-like quality that basically ruins it for me. Ignoring the aroma, the flavor is good. Slightly tangy, with an aftertaste of very pleasant bitterness. But this tea just doesn't do it for me...it seems to have a staleness that I usually only encounter in decaffeinated teas.

Very similar in style and overall quality to Bigelow's normal green tea...which I don't like.

Like this tea, sometimes a little pale, but pretty good otherwise.
