What is essentially different about ITO EN Oi Ocha in comparison with other green tea brands is its distinctive authentic Japanese Green tea taste. Even after the tea was packaged into bottles, the strong taste of freshly-brewed tea still remains.
The ITO EN Oi Ocha range includes Oi Ocha Green Tea and Oi Ocha Hojicha which is a dark roasted green tea. The taste of Hojicha is darker, with a more distinct bitter after-taste. It’s great for those who prefer a more aromatic taste of green tea. Personally, I prefer Oi Ocha green tea for it’s clear and light taste. The Oi Ocha Hojicha is a little too overpowering for me.
So, are ready-to-drink green tea healthy? Well, it all depends on its ingredient label. It’s hard to ascertain something which is really healthy or not because it all depends what your definition of healthy is.But there are healthier options of ready-to-drink green tea out there such as ITO EN Oi Ocha green tea. In time to come, there will be even more healthier options made available to all!
I noticed a growing trend in companies trying to create the most purest and natural beverages, using minimal or natural preservatives. Who knows, maybe one day we might be able to enjoy green tea from a bottle using all natural ingredients obtained from nature! And to me, that is definitely healthy! As for now, I prefer soaking green tea bags in hot water and drinking it hot from my favourite mug. Nothing beats a hot freshly-brewed cup of green tea.
Though it’s always best to drink freshly brewed tea from the cup using high quality green tea leaves but it you can’t carry tea bags or hot water around with you, you might just want to settle for a bottle of ITO EN Oi Ocha green tea instead.
