Sokenbicha “Replenish” Review & Giveaway Contest!

written by Head Health Nutter March 29, 2012

Are you ready for a REAL healthy option in a beverage product? Or even better, a giveaway package that allows you to try it for free and provide you with a few other useful items ย to help you look sexy, be good to the environment and improve your efficiency?

A Sokenbichaย (pronounced “Sew-Ken-BEACH-Ah”) representative approached me recently with the offer to sample the newest flavour of Sokenbicha (Japanese flavoured cold teas) and supply FOUR contest winners on Live Lighter with a fabulous giveaway package. Of course I said, “Yes, please!”

 

If you’ve never heard of Sokenbicha, I reviewed it back in October 2010 when it first hit U.S. shelves. It’s an iced tea like no other: unique herbal blends with healing properties based on an ancient Japanese herbal approach to health and wellness, unsweetened and absolutely calorie-free.

For those of you who’ve cut sugar out of your diet, this is the tasty commercial tea you’ve been waiting for a company to produce – one who also cares for the environment with their sustainability practices! For all you the sugar addicts out there, this might not be the tastiest beverage for you but it will be a very healthy, refreshing, flavour-full alternative to plain old (but healthy) water.

Sokenbicha began with 5 varieties of teas:

Revive: A crisp oolong tea blend infused with pomegranate and raspberry notes, black tea and rose hips.
Defend: A mild oolong tea blend with guava leaves and ginseng.
Purify: An aromatic green tea blend with chamomile and aloe.
Shape: A bold barley tea blend with peach flower notes, puโ€™er and green teas.
Skin: A full-bodied barley tea blend with cinnamon and ginger.

And now they’ve just released a new tea: Replenish. This one is a jasmine tea with aloe and hints of mint! It has a very lovely flavour; I personally taste the jasmine more than the mint and that works for me – jasmine is beautiful! Even though mint is my favourite tea…

I highly suggest everyone give these teas a try. If you’re interested, you can pick up yours Whole Food Markets and other stores across America. OR, you can enter Live Lighter’s Sokenbicha giveaway contest for a chance to win samples and other goodies!
