Green tea contains less than a quarter the amount of caffeine per cup than in a similar-sized cup of coffee. More about caffeine.
Steeping green tea is easy. Simply heat fresh, filtered water just short of boiling. Then pour water over tea and steep for 1-3 minutes (if using a tea bag) or 2-4 minutes (if using full-leaf tea.)

A GOOD SOCIAL TEA

Is a drinkable tea. Less acidic tasting than regular green tea with a pleasant mouth-feel.
An Outstanding Tea

Excellent tea hot or cold! We hot-brewed this tea last month and put it in the refrigerator. It is full-flavored yet light and refreshing. No sugar or milk needed - just drink and enjoy!

This tea is very good and it is great that it is also organic. However, now I no longer can afford this tea. Usually roasted green tea is a very affordable tea compared to other green teas. But now this tea has increased in price significantly here, and the 1 lb bag is no longer available (now it is 0.75 lb and way more expensive than before) and sadly I will replace it with other organic roasted green tea that are affordable and also good.

This was my first foray into the world of green tea and I absolutely loved it! The warm earthy flavor of the tea is very comforting and I love the way it wakes me up when I am feeling a bit down. However, it does not have too much caffeine and I am able to drink it up to an hour before I go to bed and still fall asleep. I would recommend this tea to everyone!
True tea-drinker's tea!

Chop wood, carry water tea! This tea is everything I love about Japanese green tea, with nice woody/nutty notes. It's almost like a nice, light oolong.
Perfect at mealtime, or anytime, and good for a second steep. Love it!
Robust and flavorful

I love this robust and full flavored green tea. I drink it almost daily and often get a second--and sometimes a third--steeping. A real favorite.
High Level Taste Tea

For those whose love of green tea can embrace the roasted twig type and the richness of its smoky aroma and flavor. Very few other green teas are as satisfying to me. I truly love it.
Great Fflavor and Wonderful Pick-me -up

A robust flavor, none of this sublte business. Really picks up my energy in the middle of an afternoon with lots yet to do. None of the "jitters" from high cafeen products.
long time favorite
February 20, 2012
i've been drinking this tea for a long time and it's one of my all time favorites. if you like a strong green tea to lift you in the morning or bring you back to life in the afternoon, give this one a try.

This is a very roasted tasting tea. I would say that it is not a "traditional" green tea taste. My first sip I wasn't very impressed but as it cooled and I got a better taste I realized this is an wonderful tea. Its a cozy fire on a cold night kind of comfort when I drink this tea. Definitely one I will drink on a daily basis.

I love this tea. The discription given is right on. It really is a wonderful earthy tea. I like mine in the evening just before bed and early in the morning when I'm getting ready for my day.

'Tis a Real Man's tea. It is the tea I prefer while boarding an enemy frigate, or while swinging on a vine and roasting a squirrel with my lighter. Aaaarrrrrgh!
my morning tea!

This is an excellent green tea. It has a lot of depth and some sweet smokiness to it. It tastes great multiple infusions (at least 2-3 times)... Loving it!!!!

A fantastic green tea. You get exactly what is promised in the description; Big Green Hojicha is a great Hojicha tea with a nutty flavor in the forefront built upon a multi-layered earthy base. It smells like fallen leaves. A must have in my opinion; you'd be hard-pressed to find a better example of this taste profile!
