Teas' Tea By ITO EN Review

I love this company and the special teas that they make! I don't know if you have tried them or not, but if you haven't, you need to give them a whirl. This is my second time getting to review another (2) great flavors, Blueberry Green Tea and Green White Tea from Teas' Tea!

Did you know that White Tea has the largest amount of Antioxidants? It also has 100% more daily value of Vitamin C? I was really surprised when I saw the little "Do you Knows" on the right side of the page announcing these little bits of info about their products. The Green White Tea is milder tasting than the Green Tea, with a light pale yellow color. It packs all those antioxidants because it is a newly budding tea and therefore is not processed as long as other teas. I learn something new about teas every time I get to review them! Oh, and just so you know, these teas are unsweetened and therefore have zero calories! What a great way to help you keep your calories under control! You will love this one because it does have a good flavor that will help keep you away from the more calorie laden drinks and even foods that are high in calories!

Now, unlike the Green White Tea, the Blueberry Green Tea is slightly sweetened with low calories. They use real cane sugar and the natural taste of blueberries to lightly sweeten this one. All I can tell you is that this was one of my favorites! I love tea and blueberries, so this was a no brainer for me. If you don't like blueberries, you may not take to this one as good as I did but I think you will, if you will just give it a shot and see what you think. I am actually thinking I may use this in a new recipe I am cooking up myself for a good tea/fruit line of slushies and think that some of these new flavors of White Teas and Green Teas would make really awesome slushies topped with the fruit of whatever is in that particular Green Tea. What do you think?

Here is why they are introducing some new flavors for us all to try:
We are thrilled to announce the launch of the next generation of TEAS’TEA® which features an advanced brewing process that offers a new level of clean, pure tea tastes, newly updated designs, new Haiku poems and new flavors.

Whatever flavor is your favorite, I am sure you will find one or more that will wet your appetite and you will want to try more of their awesome flavors. There are so many to choose from including the (2) Classics, Low Calorie, Plus and Unsweetened. Each category has it's own unique flavors and will delight you as you experiment to find out which ones are your favorites. They have one called Half and Half that really has some wild flavors that I bet are really good and I can't wait to try them also! They are Half & Half Green Tea with Green Apples, Half & Half Green Tea with Peaches, Half & Half Green Tea with Coconut, Half & Half Green Tea with Grapes and Half & Half Green Tea with Lemonade.

I found some background history on ITO EN that I thought was interesting:
ITO EN (North America) Inc. was founded in May 2001 with the mission of introducing ITO EN's line of green tea products and establishing a culture and interest in authentic green tea in the United States and beyond. In order to accomplish these goals, the company developed a three-tier strategy, simultaneously entering the beverage wholesale, retail, and restaurant industries.

In 2002, the Teas' Tea line of natural, unsweetened bottled tea was launched. The product line functions as the centerpiece of ITO EN (North America) Inc. for it upholds ITO EN's principles of Natural, Safe, Healthy, Well-Designed, and Delicious. The product was first introduced through wholesale distribution in New York City and the Tri-State area.

The breadth of ITO EN (North America) Inc. is increasing through the development of new beverage and loose leaf tea products, the expansion of its distribution network to a national level, and the growth of its ecommerce operations. With the attention of industry, the media, and the public, ITO EN (North America) Inc. is well on its way to making green tea a true part of the new American culture.
