It isn't easy being green, at least when it comes to tea. Despite its myriad health benefits, the brew still isn't as popular as its black variety cousin nor, of course, coffee. But slowly, people are wisening up to the fact that it can fight cancer and heart disease and lower bad cholesterol, and are starting to develop a palate for its delightful grassy flavor. If you're still new to this variety of Camellia sinensis, you will love the examples featured on this list, which contains many fruit-flavored "beginner's" green teas that balance the beverage's characteristic vegetal taste with other nuances, from coconut to mint. In that sense, this collection of top green teas isn't for purists who prefer their green tea unadulterated. But even longtime aficionados might find cool new offerings, including one that is made from Eleuthero (a cousin of ginseng) but which looks and tastes just like the best of its true green tea mates. Here's to going green!
