Itoen Japanese Green Tea

18 Jul

Itoen Japanese Green Tea

The first time I tried Itoen Green Tea was when I was in Japan and I fell in love with this drink. Not only is it healthy, but it taste amazing. It’s unsweetened, has no Calories, no added flavors or coloring, and is packed with vitamin C. It’s brewed using first flush green tea leaves and serves as a good source of catechins, and natural green tea antioxidants. It cost about $2 for a 16 oz or $5 for a 64 oz bottle bottle at your local Asian market or convenient store.

Cheon Yeon Cider Orange Flavor

Cheon Yeon Cider Orange Flavor

Cheon Yeon Cider is a Korean Soda Made by Ilhwa. It’s smells a little like cream soda, but it doesn’t have a strong taste. Instead it tastes like a mixture of plain soda (seltzer) with a hint of sugar. The orange flavor is very faint, but the smell is pleasant and the taste is refreshing. I cost about $1-1.50 for 8.4oz can and should be available at your nearest korean supermarket. If you’re a local to NYC, grab a can at any of the H-Marts in Flushing.
