The origins of green tea can be traced to China, but once it was brought to Japan – around 800 years ago – there was no stopping the growth in popularity this tea enjoyed around the world. These days, green tea is as American as apple pie. Green tea has a unique, full taste that’s been a huge hit with tea drinkers. But it’s not just the taste of the tea that has taste buds tingling. In addition to that great flavor, green tea is known for the health benefits of its high levels of antioxidants.
Trader Joe’s Organic Green Tea comes to us from Korakundah, in Southern India, where the tea is grown at an elevation of about 8,000 feet. It’s steamed, not pan fried like many green teas. In the cup, our Organic Green Tea takes on a golden color, and delivers rich, grassy flavors and a slightly astringent finish. Steep it hot and then serve it over ice for a most refreshing summertime iced tea. We’re selling each box of 20 tea bags for $2.99, every day – this is by far the best value we’ve seen anywhere for Organic Green Tea from this premier tea-growing region.
Ingredients: 100% Organic Green Tea Blend
