Ito En O-cha

WashokuLovers

Ito En is an innovative Green Tea company who were invited by the Victorian Government in 1994 to grow Japanese green tea leaves in Australia from scratch. Their #1 seller Oi Ocha is unsweetened, sweetener-free, zero calories and ready-to-consume are few of the reasons why I keep coming back for more, especially when I’m trying to keep in shape during the winter. Let me share with you a few of my favourite products from their selection.


Shincha, is the first tea leaves harvested for the season. The leaves continue to absorb the nutrients during the winter season giving the first growth of leaves in the spring a refreshing and invigorating scent. It’s also low in catechin and caffeine making it less bitter in taste and high in amino acids for a full-bodied flavour and sweetness. Their Genmaicha is one of my personal favourites when it comes to green tea. It is a mixture of tea and roasted grains of brown rice which gives off a nutty and deeper flavour from the sugars. Also if you’re wanting to recreate your favourite matcha latte or smoothie you can use their  Matcha Green Tea Sweet Powder.  You’re able to purchase Ito En’s products at Woolworth and other Asian groceries at a very reasonable prices so make sure to follow Ito En on their Facebook page & Instagram to keep up to date on their new and current products!
