How TEAS’ TEA from ITO EN Cares for the Environment, Plus a Giveaway!

Did you know that, after water, tea is the most consumed beverage in the world? On any given day, more than 160 million Americans are drinking tea! (Source: The Tea Association of the USA) Whether you like your tea hot or cold, sweet or unsweetened, tea is a refreshing way to quench your thirst.

Thanks to TEAS’ TEA from ITO EN, it’s easy to find delicious all-natural tea in ready-to-drink bottles. In fact, ITO EN pioneered the first bottled green tea in the world, called the Oi Ocha. Their meticulous brewing methods and proprietary filtration method reduce sediment in their teas, creating a clean finish. And here are more reasons to purchuase TEAS’ TEA besides their great taste:

TEAS’ TEA Cares! How?
1. The new re-design of TEAS’ TEA® bottles reduces the carbon footprint and is now the lightest bottle in the ready-to-drink beverage industry, weighing only 18.7 grams, compared to standard plastic bottles in the industry of 24 grams.
2. Reducing packaging is a company goal. By choosing recyclable plastic bottles (PET 1) over glass, the company has been able to save in fuel expenses and reduce the carbon footprint.
3. Recognized for their recycling tea leaf program, ITO EN has been awarded the Grand Prize by the Ministry of Agriculture, Forestry and Fisheries of Japan and the Environment Minister’s Prize for developing eco-friendly products made from used tea leaves. A variety of products ranging from vending machines and public benches have been a part of the company’s recycling CSR activities.

ITO EN was also kind enough to send me some of their wonderful teas for review. I received teas from the following product categories:

TEAS' TEA Unsweetened
- Brewed using the finest green tea leaves and unsweetened
- 0 Calories
- Great source of natural antioxidants
- 100% or more of daily value of Vitamin C
- 7 Flavors: Pure Green tea, Jasmine Green, Green White, Lemongrass Green, Rose Green, Mint Green, Golden Oolong tea.
- SRP $1.99 per bottle for 16.9 FL OZ (500 ml).

TEAS’ TEA PLUS half&HALF 
- Brewed using the finest green tea leaves and slightly sweetened
- only 50 calories per serving.
- 5 flavors: green tea & lemon, green tea & green apple (which came in second place at the North American Tea Championships 2012), green tea & peach, green tea & coconut, green tea & grape.
- SRP $1.99 per bottle for 16.9 FL OZ (500 ml).

My husband prefers his tea unsweetened, so he is a huge fan of TEAS’ TEA Unsweetened varieties. I prefer a little more sweetness to my tea, so I love the TEAS’ TEA PLUS half&HALF because they’re slightly sweetened. We both work from home, and drinking a bottle of TEAS’ TEA makes for a perfect afternoon break!

ITO EN has been a pioneer and leader in the unsweetened tea market for more than 10 years! TEAS’ TEA is sold nationwide in conventional, natural & specialty stores and online at www.amazon.com and www.itoen.com/teas-tea.html for just $1.99 per bottle. I hope you’ll pass over the high-calorie sodas and reach for a bottle of TEAS’ TEA next time you want to quench your thirst.
