At my local organic grocery store, with practically an entire aisle of teas to choose from, this is my favorite cheap bagged green tea.

I’m a fan of the Newman’s Own brand. I’ve found their products are generally high quality, and I like them for being green and donating 100% of their profits to various educational and charitable organizations.

When I don’t have time to hassle with loose leaf brewing, this is a fine choice for green tea.

It is especially forgiving of accidental over-steeping or using water that is too hot.

The flavor is fairly mild (double-bag for stronger results), with flavors of honey and malt in addition to the classic green-tea flavor. This isn’t world class green tea, but it is totally drinkable, affordably priced, and nicely satisfies my green-tea cravings.

I’ve been a lover of tea for as long as I can remember. A hot cup of Bigelow Constant Comment will bring back a flood of memories of working at a summer camp outside Yosemite when I was 18. When I’m sick with a cold there’s nothing that helps more than Celestial Seasoning’s Lemon Zinger with a heaping spoonful of honey.

Now that I’m older I’ve learned to appreciate delicate and complex oolong and green teas. Right now I’m discovering I really like teas from Thailand. (Going beyond Thai Iced Tea, which I’ve always loved).
