From Tazo

from amazon "For thousands of years, medicine men and shaman from many cultures have recognized the value of green tea in maintaining health. China Green Tips, like all Tazo green teas, is prepared in a way that maintains the natural health benefits, color and taste. The tea is steamed to neutralize the oxidating enzyme, then dried using a panfired technique to bring out the maximum flavor. Like black teas, China Green Tips and other Tazo green teas are made from the same botanical species, Camellia Sinensis and can contain as much caffeine as black teas. "

Today’s afternoon green tea selection was Tazo China Green Tips. I made the mistake of neglecting to order it in a ceramic mug (at Starbucks), so the water was really too hot. As a result, the brew was not quite as delicious as the last time. I won’t make that mistake again!

second infusion: I decided to use my sachets for decaffeinated green after dinner and found the brew to be pretty good. I do believe that the first infusion was too hot, though, so this one was also not as good as last time, either.

third infusion: With so much tea in these sachets, I tried a third infusion. It was just okay.

in a pinch for some decent quality green tea? i’ll say that this does the trick when I don’t have my usual whole leaf tea. I can usually get two infusions out of a venti size since they put in two tea bags. I sweeten to taste with white sugar or honey if available at the location.


I have got to weigh this… I ordered this (really w/o thinking since it wasn’t til after I ordered that they got rid of my FAVORITE- ginger green) w/ my normal 1 bag/6oz water ratio (2 bags for a tall)- and it was SO bitter.

I think that this is a pretty good tea for the price. Definitely not a life-changing tea or anything, but it is still pleasant. The main problem that I have is that the first steeping can be a little astringent, which is why I actually prefer the second steeping of this tea. It could also be a little smoother in my opinion. Really, the price is what makes it stand out.

This is called China Green tips (full leaf) and comes in a large tea bag / sachet. Unfortunately it didn’t have any full leafs they were medium sized pieces of broken leaves. That being said it was bigger pieces than any other tea bag I have seen.

It tastes very good and fresh. The best bagged green tea I have ever tasted.

I honestly preferred it before starbucks moved to full leaf. Personally now this tea tasted like someone emptied the full bag of a lawnmower and brewed it.
