Taste Test: Our Guide to the Best Products at the Supermarket

There are tens of thousands of products on supermarket shelves; let us help you pick the best—in both taste and nutrition. After booting out foods that don't fit our nutrition standards, products are served to a Cooking Light staff tasting panel for blind taste tests. Here are the winning products in a variety of categories.

Bottled Flavored Green Tea

GRAND PRIZE WINNER: Arizona Green Tea with Ginseng and Honey

A little less tea-intense than green tea purists might prefer, but with a gently honeyed flavor that's refreshing.

TASTE TEST AWARD: Tazo Zen Green Tea with Lemongrass and Spearmint

An earthy green-tea base with a touch of honey, lemon, and mint to keep bitterness in balance.

BEST TRADITIONAL GREEN TEA: Ito En Oi Ocha Unsweetened Green Tea

Deeply aromatic for an iced green tea. A hint of traditional bitterness gives way to a floral finish.
