Great Taste I bought this green tea because it is organic. I knew I was getting a healthy product but what I got was much more. The taste is really good. It is fresh, smooth and full bodied. You will be pleased with this high quality tea. What a nice surprise. Note: This Bigelow product comes 40 bags to a box and 4 tea bags to a wrapper....more info
Highly Recommended Excellent green tea with a light smooth taste. I purchased this tea because it was organic and the subscribe & save price was pretty low. My family goes through a box of green tea a week so the pack of 6 is fantastic. I will purchase again. Highly recommended....more info
I love this green tea I personally pick it over lipton's green tea because this one tastes so much better....more info
Good Stuff The Bigelow organic green tea has a light taste unlike most non-organic green teas, which may explain why its easier on the stomach. The price is relatively low, and 240 tea bags lasts awhile. ...more info
Great Tea This tea is great. My husband doesn't like tea but he loves this like me....more info
Amazing Flavor Bigelow Organic Green Tea has amazing flavor and provides natural energy for a busy day!...more info
A little on the weak side Have to use 2 tea bags to get the Green tea effect. I've used other Green Tea products where I only need one tea bag. If you're not into Green tea but feel you should be using it, I'll recommend trying this brand....more info
Excellent R.C. Bigelow, Inc. was begun in 1945 by Ruth Campbell Bigelow, a tea connoisseur who wanted to offer even more taste opportunities to American tea drinkers. Among the teas that Bigelow presents is their wonderful Green Tea. Green tea is now very popular, due to its antioxidants and other health benefits.
Overall, I found this to be an excellent hot tea, with a wonderful smell and taste. But, that's not all: Bilgelow's Green Tea also makes a great iced tea! So, if you are looking for a delicious and healthy green tea, one that tastes great hot and cold, then get this one! I highly recommend it. (By the way, check out the interesting recipes on Bigelow's website!)...more info
Good value Don't expect "authentic" Japanese tea, but this is good. I feel the taste is a bit weak, but I use two tea bags and then it's fine. Great value for money. ...more info
weak This green tea, like a lot of them is very weak. It has been very difficult for me to find a good green tea at a decent price. Tzao makes a decent green tea but their price is a lot higher than others. One thing you can look at is how many ounces of dry tea they put in each tea bag. If they only have 2.19 ounces of tea per 40 tea bags, you know you're looking at some weak tea....more info
Great Tea I love this tea! I use it to make hot and cold Green Tea and it is really good. ...more info
It's Organic, OK? - And more than acceptable taste Hardly a connoisseur of green teas, I nonetheless consume lots of it -- on a typical workday, I drink 4-6 packets of the stuff. There are surprisingly few options for organic tea, though I imagine this will change gradually over time.
Bigelow packs these with one overall paper wrapping, and several bags are enclosed in a separate sealed wrapper. Intended to preserve freshness (see the Wikipedia entry for green tea for more on this), this is convenient if you want to pack several bags for lunch at work.
I'd also tried Celestial Seasonings' (non organic) green tea, and notice that it was somewhat less tolerant of boiling water than the Bigelow product, which Wikipedia tells us can cause green tea leaves to produce bitterness. Celestial Seasonings green tea offering seemed to pack slightly more taste, but the difference is small in my judgment.
I have an unscientific suspicion that an almost-boiled product might release more unwanted chemicals from non-organic farming, and since I drink lots of tea, it seems worth the additional expense to buy organic. Lipton sells what is to my palette an equally acceptable green tea, but it's not organic.
I recommend mixing this with Celestial Seasonings Herb Tea, Cinnamon Apple Spice also available from Amazon Celestial Seasonings Herb Tea, Cinnamon Apple Spice, Tea Bags, 20-Count Boxes (Pack of 6). Even a single occasional bag of apple spice will add a pleasant tangy flavor to the typically (let's admit it) bland green tea flavor.
I'm currently purchasing both products through Amazon's Subscribe and Save. Bigelow products are rarely discounted by local grocers, save the occasional promotion on a specific flavor.
