Oi Ocha Japanese Green Tea .Ito En

October 4, 2006 at 8:38 pm | Posted in Green Tea, just green tea, RTD Bottled Tea, Tea Reviews | 1 Comment

found at Famima!!/Whole Foods/Sunrise Mart(NY)/and other local stores

was ~ $2.03 for .5L bottle. nice packaging.Also available as 2L bottle (which for some reason i did a separate review)

Free Image Hosting at www.ImageShack.usyay! finally found a good un-sugarized bottled tea … strong full flavor ‘pleasantly’ astringent tea taste, tho faintly green, there was some toasty something taste in there … ok… flavor, astringent.
feels over-extracted… leaf kept too long in water. But, better taste than most teabags i’ve tried, not as good as a good looseleaf tea, but its a fast, ready to drink substitute.

Overall: keep-r-us? HELL YES ! and thus started my Bottled Teas list.

wish they’d sell this at Ralphs or Savon or Whole foods…but probably those have exclusive contracts with lipton or some other marketers of sugarized ‘tea’ shit.

  1. Completely agree with you! I hate sweetened teas such as Brisk where it’s more like drinking maple syrup! This product right here I found at Mistuwa Market, in Costa Mesa, CA should be distributed to more retailers then it is.
