We took a very level-headed approach in our research into the best organic green tea brands. We sat down with a cuppa and mulled things over with the cat on our lap.
We love a nice relaxing cup of tea and we’d encourage everyone to enjoy the healthy taste of green tea.
However, it can be hard to identify which brands are environmentally friendly amid all the greenwashing.
So, we’ve done the hard work for you and tracked down the best organic tea brands for 2020.
Top Organic Green Tea Brands
Bigelow Organic Green Tea Bags
In our opinion, Bigelow Tea is the best value tea on our list.
Bigelow is blended and packaged in the US and has been family run since 1945.
That was the year the founder – Ruth Campbell Bigelow – created their first tea called Constant Comment. They describe it as “a strong, flavorful black tea blended with aromatic orange peel and sweet warming spices.”
It’s the perfect everyday tea and delivers a generous dose of healthy antioxidants in every cup. Don’t miss it.

Organic India Tulsi Green Herbal Tea
These are guaranteed vegan, certified organic and as the name suggest this tea hails, somewhat unusually for green tea, from Indian and not China.
It was the first company in India to receive the LEED certification for commitment to the wellbeing of their community too.
The tea is fantastic to taste.

Prince Of Peace Organic Green Tea 100 Bags
These 100% certified organic leaves have been pan fried (it’s an ancient Chinese tea preparation technique – not some bizarre new-fangled thing to do to tea).
That means it’s got a darker color and a somewhat smooth taste.
They’re very good value for money too.
It’s very low on caffeine as well.

Numi Organic Tea, Gunpower Green
This is a super tea with a really full-bodied taste to it. It’s a whole leaf tea which has been steamed and then the leaves are formed into very tight pearls.
When you make a pot, the pearls then unfold to release the flavor into the brew.
This is a medium caffeine tea which has been traditionally drunk by Chinese workers.
Speaking of which, the tea is harvested in China and their tea garden is 100% Fair Trade.
