My New Couponing Find: Celestial Seasonings Green Tea (Review)

My couponing husband snagged a great deal on Celestial Seasonings Tea, so I decided to try their Gen Mai Cha Green Tea with Toasted Rice and Matcha.  A few months ago, I tried a Rishi Green Tea at a restaurant that had a toasted sesame flavor to it.  It was very smooth and addicting.  Since then, I have been on the hunt for an affordable version.  I have discovered a decent substitute with the Gen Mai Cha.

The tea's roasted nut aroma begins to relax me before I even begin sipping my tea.  It actually reminds me of the roasted walnut oil that I love so much at the olive oil stores.  Upon sipping, I immediately taste the nuttiness coming from the toasted rice.  I do not get a heavy green tea taste.  While I love green tea, those who are not so enamored with it may actually enjoy this tea and find it as a stepping stone to other green teas.  For me, it is all about that roasted nut flavor.  Although this is not the best green tea that I have enjoyed, I am loving the nuttiness and I like that it comes in packets for the days when I do not want to mess with my loose leaves. 

You cannot beat the antioxidant punch of green tea.  Plus, tea really helps with some of my allergy symptoms.  Of course, I would be remiss if I did not also mention the caffeine pick-me-up that I sometimes derive from tea (and this tea does deliver!).  I do drink a lot of tea for these reasons and am glad to have found an easy, affordable tea to use alongside my other favorites.
