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.)

Fresh green, herbal and smooth. Not one bit bitter. This is my all time favorite green tea and healthy tea to drink! I'm not kidding...it's my number 1. These teabags make it very easy to take with me anywhere and everywhere I can get a cup of hot water. Always helps if I have a stomach ache, or just to settle my stomach after a meal too. For those who don't want to deal with frothing the powder, this is the quick & easy answer. Enjoy!

I love Matcha, but can't make it at work. The Double Green Matcha tastes like I whipped up a cup of Matcha without the mess. It has a 'fresh brewed' flavor that I can enjoy at work.

This tea is delicious. It is very earthy and mild. You feel like you are drinking something very healthy for you when you have a cup!
Good Morning tea

I've cut back to one cup of coffee and this tea is my "go to" after the coffee is gone! Yummy and mellow, you can add honey, agave or sometimes I add a bit of cacao podwer.

Has a nice, earthy flavor. I add a bit of honey every now and then, but can drink it either way.

Great tasting tea with a very full flavor. Don't get me wrong, it is not bitter or over powering. I use this tea to help me relax in the evenings. I prefer this to standard green tea. This tea is a great choice for anyone that loves Matcha. It is among the best I have enjoyed.
NIce flavor and body!

I like this because it almost has a slight sweetness to it and it has a creamy texture to it. I like to add honey and even a mint tea bag to it if I want a green tea mint flavor.
