BROOKLYN, N.Y., Dec. 21 /PRNewswire/ -- With January and February come
New Year's resolutions, holiday hangovers, minimal daylight hours, and the
official saddest week of the year (third week of January).
Meet Sencha Shot, an all-natural, authentic and invigorating punch of
green tea energy boost that banishes winter doldrums, excess weight,
cancerous cells and cavities, among other ailments.
THE REAL DEAL
"As other products jump into the 'green tea is good for you' or 'all-
natural' market, our advice is to read the ingredient list," says Rona
Tison, VP of Ito En Corporate Relations. Each 6.4 fl oz can of Sencha Shot
contains 152 mg of the cancer-fighting catechin EGCG. That's 5 times more
than the average ready-to-drink green tea, according to the USDA. Sencha
Shot contains simply purified water, green tea, and vitamin C. No extracts,
TASTE IT TWICE
Ito En, the world's largest green tea company, uses an advanced, deep
brewing method that yields a full-bodied, unique flavor. Artificial flavors
have distorted American palates, so the taste of Sencha Shot is at first
surprising, even weird. We suggest trying it twice. By the second can,
taste buds crave the unsweetened, natural Sencha Shot goodness.
Unlike some energy drinks, you can sip guilt-free, as Sencha Shot
contains no calories, sweeteners or artificial energy additives. Besides
containing 140% of the USDA-recommended amount of Vitamin C, Sencha Shot is
full of green tea saponins that work against obesity, allergies and
inflammation. Plus, it has fluoride to strengthen teeth and bones.
BE ZEN AND MAYBE LIVE LONGER
Buddhist monks drink concentrated green tea, like Sencha Shot, before
beginning hours-long meditations. One Sencha Shot provides 40 mg of
caffeine -- less than coffee, slightly more than most sodas. The naturally
occurring amino acid theanine allows for the slow release of caffeine and
produces a calming, re-aligning effect rather than jittery bursts of
Sencha Shot's good energy will get you through winter and beyond.
Japanese live on average 3 years longer than Americans. Experts credit
their clean, healthy diet, including daily consumption of unsweetened green
Ito En was founded in Japan in 1966 and opened North American
operations in 2001 with Teas' Tea, all-natural, unsweetened ready-to-drink
teas, which received the 'Best Flavor' and 'Best Packaging' awards from the
2005 World Tea Expo.
