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 miuntes (if using full-leaf tea.)
Finest Japanese green tea leaves and toasted rice

I just purchased this tea for the first time. This tea almost has a hint of a popcorn taste to it because of the rice. The green tea is a little on the bitter side but adding a little honey brightens it up. Overall it's a lighter tea and very good to sip on during a cold day.
My only green tea

I'm a die-hard black tea drinker, and normally don't give much thought to green tea. Even very expensive green tea tastes odd and grassy to me. (I know, it's supposed to - just not my thing.) But this is a notable exception. I've ordered this several times over the years. It's sweet and nutty, needs nothing added to it, good to the last drop.
Nice tea, pretty earthy

This tea is nice but not the best green tea + toasted rice one that I have tasted. The green tea itself tastes very earthy...not bad, just different. It is still good and a delicious tasting cup of green tea!

My favorite tea! Hard to get through a day without a cup either hot or cold.
