Community Green Tea Product Review

I come from a long line of tea lovers; my family has been drinking tea as far back as I can remember. Generally, we drink cold southern sweet tea, although there are times when a hot cup of tea hit's the spot whether it is orange teas or especially herbal teas. However, like many individuals in the world,

I have become interested in green tea for various reasons. The biggest reason is for its various healing properties as well as good taste depending on the product you choose to drink. I have tried different types of green tea drinks. Some of them not so pleasing for my taste and some that do taste very good.

Green Tea is...

Green Tea is an Age Old Tradition

Community Green Tea Review

Community Green Tea is one of those teas that I think taste very good. It provides a nice mellow form of green tea taste. It is not overpowering and it is not as pungent in taste, as some of the bottled green tea drinks I have tried before.

I had tried a previous green tea in individual size tea bags and it was decent in taste and quality. However, while shopping at WalMart one day I noticed that they had begun stocking Community Green Tea individual tea bags. I had tried Community Tea previously and knew that it was a good tasting product, so when I found this brand of green tea I wanted to give it a try.

A Green Tea Origin Story

Although there is no shortage of legends to explain its origin, we probably will never know how tea was really discovered. One story connects it with Emperor Shen Nung, who drank only boiled water when traveling around the country. Once a branch of a burning brush was blown into the already bubbling water.

Much to his surprise, the emperor noted a most pleasant taste and a beautiful aroma in the new beverage. His discovery was tea!

This tidbit of information is added as a suggested addition by LaraineRose to this green tea product review.

Talking about Green Tea

...hot tea and cold tea...

I do enjoy the taste of this tea as a cold ice tea drink. I have also used this tea to make a cup of hot tea from time to time and, especially times when I am feeling cold and or flu symptoms and it works quite well. I prefer honey with herbal tea. However, a little sugar will work well once in a while.

I think using this tea tumbler would be nice. It makes just enough to satisfy a craving for tea. It seems to be a ready-to-go tea maker so, you can take it with you wherever you may go.

Making Green Tea

...or any other type of tea...

While making tea, green tea or any other type of hot drink, you may need a teapot to heat the water for tea making. Teapots are available in such a wide range of styles, designs and colors - with so many different themes or motifs from which to choose, finding something to suit anyone is fairly easy.

For instance, think favorite colors or mixing and matching with current kitchen decor themes - doing so gives you an idea of what to choose for your home or as gifts.

How to Make Granny's Southern Sweet Tea Recipe

...it may not be green tea, but Granny makes great tea!


  • Boil 3 cups of water; include 3 Family size tea bags or 10 individual size tea bags.
  • Allow tea bags to boil for about 2 minutes and then remove from heat source and allow this to sit until you have your picture ready for filling with tea.

*Alternately, you can add the number of tea bags you have into a Mr. Tea maker to brew your tea. You may also allow the brewed tea in a pot to sit for 5 to 10 minutes depending on your preferences of strength in tea.

  • Using a Gallon size pitcher, you will add according to Granny 2 cups of white sugar.

* Feel free to adjust the amount of white sugar you may include in your own gallon of sweet tea. You may also wish to include some artificial sweetener such as Splenda or you may even wish to sweeten your tea by using honey.

  • Add the hot brewed tea to the sugar in the pitcher and then stir well, since hot liquid will melt white sugar more quickly than will cold water.
  • After thoroughly mixing to melt the sugar with the hot brewed tea you will add the remained of water necessary to fill the gallon tea pitcher.

Green Tea and other Tea Recipes

Sometimes I make Green tea according to this recipe while cutting down on the amount of sugar to 1 cup of sugar. There are times that I also use two family size tea bags and three individual size tea bags of Community Green Tea to make a gallon of Southern sweet tea.

Making tea is relaxing. It fills the space with a wonderful scent. Drink some green tea today.
