We love sipping green tea year-round, but especially once the temperatures drop and flu season is in full swing. Loaded with powerful antioxidants, essential nutrients, and anti-inflammatory polyphenols, green tea has tons of potent health benefits. Lower in caffeine than black tea, green tea has a fresh, light flavor and is verdant green in color. We’ve rounded up the most highly rated, sustainably sourced, and best-tasting green tea varieties to help you reach your happy place.

There are plenty of reasons to love Buddha Teas — from their sustainable sourcing practices to their bleach-free tea bags.

Medium-bodied with grassy notes and a fresh aroma, this green tea is delicious sipped first thing in the morning or as an afternoon pick-me-up.
