Sokenbicha (Sew-Ken-BEACH-Ah), one of Japan’s leading tea brands, will debut in the U.S on Whole Foods Market shelves nationwide starting in October 2010 and I for one cannot wait! Sokenbicha was kind enough to send me samples of their bottled teas and it was love at first sip.
Sokenbicha combines the refreshment of water with the flavor and goodness of authentically brewed tea and natural botanicals. Each of the five varieties is unsweetened (but doesn’t taste it), contains zero calories and is made with natural botanicals:
- Revive, a crisp oolong tea blend infused with pomegranate and raspberry notes, black tea and rose hips
- Defend, a mild oolong tea blend with guava leaves and ginseng
- Purify, an aromatic green tea blend with chamomile and aloe (my favorite)
- Shape, a bold barley tea blend with peach flower notes, pu’er and
- green teas
- Skin, a full-bodied barley tea blend with cinnamon and ginger
Sokenbicha’s brand heritage is inspired by the teachings of Kampo, the traditional Japanese herbal approach to health and wellness dating back more than 1500 years. Click here to download the brochure (from my site) and get a coupon!
Another reason I love these cold teas is because not only are they more flavorful than water, but I can keep them in my purse without worrying about a spill! For more updates from this awesome branch, check out Sokenbicha.com, Twitter.com/SokenbichaTea, orFacebook.com/Sokenbicha.
