The other reviewers on here didn’t seem to like this tea… I guess I’ll be the weirdo who actually enjoyed it.

The jar is generously full and the leaves smell earthy and fresh. So far, so good…

I did NOT use boiling water, like the package says to. I’m thinking that may have made the difference. The flavor isn’t super strong, but then, I was conservative with the steep time because green teas make me nervous. It steeps up a golden brown color. I get toasty, vegetal notes, particularly green beans/ asparagus. It has a pretty brothy mouthfeel.

Overall, it’s a pretty inoffensive green tea. For $7 for the whole jar, I’ll definitely take it. It’s owned by Lipton, so set your expectations accordingly.

I picked this one up at Walmart. The first time I tried 2 small teaspoons to 450 mL of water. The result was undrinkable.

Second time, I tried one teaspoon. Still bitter.

I will try again. Sigh.

Did you try sitting the bag in cold water first and then steeping it hot?

Nope, interesting idea, though.

Picked this up at Walmart because I think it was one of the few loose leaf green teas available. Packaging looked promising, with the “Single Origin” advertising and everything, but the taste is underwhelming. It’s definitely not comparable to other gunpowder green teas I have tried from Teavivre, Upton, etc. It is very light-bodied, dry, and leaves a nasty bitter aftertaste at the end. I used boiling water, which is usually recommended for gunpowder green tea (and was written as such on the package of this tea as well), but this one might be an exception. I will try a lower temperature next time.

Boiling 3 min, 30 sec
