Consumer Reports has an article on green tea in this issue, ranking 3 as 'very good,' but finding none that were 'excellent' out of the two dozen or so they tested.
The 'very good' ones included two Tazo and TenRen's Dragon Well.
I went to one speciality grocery store and couldn't find any of the rated brands, but a dozen or so others.
So, the question for green tea hounds: do you agree with CRs recommendations? What is/are the best green teas?
I have access to a large number of oriental shops and grocery stores and may even find a speciality tea merchant somewhere in those neighborhoods, tho I didn't find any in the Yellow Pages. I will probably be able to find just about any brand that is available and will prefer to buy locally and in person for the time being, while I experiment.
