The best green tea in a bag I have found
From my earlier review:
Most bagged tea is almost by definition not of the best quality, because the little pile of tiny pieces, or even powder, protected only by porous paper and exposed to the air, has a large surface area and is quickly oxidized. The more subtle aromatics are gone in a day or two, once the seal on the box is broken.
These Tradition whole leaf teas are each sealed in an individual plastic packet and the leaves, although, not really “whole,” are much larger than most bagged tea and a beautifully preserved green leaf. The well-stuffed bags appear to be made of silk, no staples, hard to tear. One bag really can be used for more than one cup. And the taste and aroma is more fragrant than almost any green tea I’ve tried, including some pricey premium whole leaf teas. I love this tea. Their Oolong tea is pretty good, too, lower on the fermentation scale than many, but good. I’d avoid the jasmine green, as it’s fine, but the flowery fragrance of the straight green is enough for me — the jasmine seems like overkill, almost like perfume.
