Luzianne green tea for iced tea
Makes weak tea with little taste, compared to standard tea…
Google on “green tea benefits” for articles on using this product for health reasons.
I’ve been drinking regular [dark] tea for about 50 years now. To make a gallon of iced tea, I nearly fill a quart pot with filtered water, add three family-sized tea bags, boil, let cool; then add it to 3/4 gallon of water through a tea strainer. Using Luzianne’s standard tea, the concentrated tea is so dark, you can’t see the bottom of the pot. This formula makes excellent iced tea.
Using the same formula with this green tea, the result is a seriously weak tea. We even covered the hot pot and let it sit overnight so it would darken more; but, the pot’s bottom was still clearly visible through the brewed concentrated tea. After mixing with 3/4 gallon of water, the resulting tea was very light, and had little taste.
These bags are 6 grams per tea bag, versus 7 grams for Luzianne’s [dark] tea. See customer images for a photo of family sized green tea on a box of family sized standard dark tea.
After some experimentation, my iced tea formula is now a 50/50 ratio of family-sized bags: i.e., two bags of standard dark tea and two bags of green tea per gallon of tea. This mix actually tastes better than just dark tea and far better than just green tea. It has just a hint of green tea flavor. Even though our tea costs more using this approach, it’s still cheap, it tastes better, and should also provide the health benefits of green tea.
The 3 stars are because, using only the Green Tea, resulting drink is too weak.
Luzianne Green Tea
Getting hard to find this stuff
Luzianne makes great green tea. It is, of course, not as strong as black tea. The taste is smooth. The caffeine level is not too bad. I like making sun tea with the larger bags. 4 bags to the gallon and 4 hours of sunshine makes fantastic tea. If you want it stronger just squeeze excess liquids from the bags when removing.
I just hope Amazon keeps selling this stuff in bulk. The price ($25/case) is very good. This is the only food product I have ever bought online.
Love this tea!
great tea bags
Cost was actually better than
Regular Tea in local Stores.
I am happy with my purchase.
Green tea with taste! Gluten free!
Stash Premium Lemon Ginger Herbal Tea, Tea Bags, 20-Count Boxes (Pack of 6)Madhava Organic Agave Nectar – Light, 23.5-Ounce Bottles (Pack of 6)
You can’t buy this fantastic best tasting tea here in New England. I spend time in Fl and sure missed my great tasting green iced tea when I came home. I add one Stash brand also on Amazon) ginger tea bag and a little Agave to the hot pitcher. Green tea is so good for you and I’m not big on water all day long. This tea is the answer! I use ginger tea as it is good for the digestive system, but you could add a bag of any flavor, some lemon or lime. Both the Luzianne and Stash Teas are also Gluten Free as is the Agave. I find buying buy the case on Amazon is less expensive also.
