Green tea is a type of tea that has been processed to stop oxidization (contrasting with black and oolong teas). The oxidation is halted by heating, usually by steaming, pan-firing or baking, which destroys the enzymes that lead to oxidation, thus preserving the green color of the tea leaf.
Green tea is fast becoming one of World’s more popular drinks, as the health benefits of drinking tea become more common knowledge.
Unfortunately, most people’s first experiences with Green Tea is less than spectacular. If you, like me, tasted your first green tea at a local chinese restaurant, you probably walked away wondering what the fuss was all about.
The reason for that is because most restaurants serve the “cheap and bagged” green teas, such as from Stash, Bigelow and even Lipton. Few restaurants actually serve you the good stuff.
And if you are looking for the good stuff, well, you’ve come to the right place. Listed on this page are all the reviews of green teas that are available on this site. If you want a quick recommendation, especially if you are new to drinking green tea, I strongly urge you to check out Tazo’s Zen Green Tea. It’s really the ideal green tea for people who have had “bad experiences” with chinese restaurants and the green tea they often serve.
