Chinese tea and culture dates back to the post-classical history era of 600 A.D. and, although tea was originally consumed for medicinal purposes to treat digestive and nervous conditions, people living in the interior part of China pressed tea into brick "currency" to barter with other tribes.
Throughout the ages, tea (and in particular, green tea) has become not only a beverage to be sipped and enjoyed but still has strong cultural roots around the world.
Mr. Itaru's Green Tea Blend begins with a base of the highest quality green tea leaves carefully processed to maximize the tea's health promoting antioxidants that are 100 times more powerful than Vitamin C and 25 times stronger than Vitamin E.
Matcha, with it's deep green color, is added for even more antioxidants.
Research has also shown that green tea may boost immunity, promote healthy intestinal function and normalize the workings of the cardiovascular system. This delicious tea incorporates toasted brown rice to give it a full, smooth texture.
Now that I'm accustomed to brewing this unusual tea, I enjoy it every morning. It was strange, at first, to prepare a tea that contained the browned rice grains as I commonly just use tea leaves. Also, I had to figure out my preferred brewing time as there were no suggestions for brewing at all on the package. I like it. It is delicious and good start to the day. I would purchase again. It is a great tea to sip and savor as I read my morning news. I am very happy to have found a TypeO-compliant green tea. I don't miss the coffee at all! Enjoy!
The best green tea available! The added rice give this super green tea a sweet and nutty flavor. The tea has smooth after taste. Added benefit: it’s super healthy to boot! One bag lasts a long time too
I did not drink tea because the dryness it left in my mouth. I now have a tea that does not do that. I like it enough to replace the coffee that I drank in the A.M.
