TEAS' TEA Green Tea Review / Giveaway

unsweetened tea
I love hot green tea. I often buy it at CVS - they regularly have a special on Unilever items, such as Lipton tea. I can usually get green tea for around a penny a bag, making it a healthy and cheap way to start my morning.  But I rarely drink it cold... until now!

I recently tried two types of bottled green teas from TEAS' TEA, made by ITO EN. This month, ITO EN & Whole Planet Foundation (Whole Foods Market's non-profit initiative), are bringing awareness to the poverty alleviation programs throughout the nation.

ITO EN is one of the original partners with Supplier Alliance for Microcredit to fight poverty around the world. The Supplier Alliance for Microcredit is an alliance of natural foods companies that has collectively pledged $1.05 million to support microlending programs which offer small, collateral-free business loans to the very poor, with a focus on women. With a microcredit loan, an impoverished woman entrepreneur can start or expand a home based business and create the opportunity to lift herself and her family out of poverty.

Socio-economic and planetary betterment is part of ITO EN's DNA from green tea health benefits research, recycling waste, to reuse of the elements if production (such as making vending machines and park benches our of recycled tea leaves). Click here for more about ITO EN's sustainability involvement.

So on to the samples!  The first tea I tried was the TEAS' TEA Unsweetened Pure Green Tea.  Its flavor was very subtle, not as strong as the flavor from the brewed tea that I make.  But the more I drank it, the more I liked it.  I also tried combining this tea with some Kern's Peach Nectar, which made for a sweet drink, not unlike my Yum Yum Peach Tea.

The second sample was the Low Calorie Blueberry Green Tea.  That was just a little bit sweeter, yet with the same subtle green tea taste.  I think my children would like this one a little better - and I would like it for them because it isn't too sweet!
