Sokenbicha Giveaway

This review is long overdue. Project Food blog kinda took over things for awhile but now I'm BACK!! I received a fabulous package of Sokenbicha to test drive and I'm so excited to tell you about them!

First here's a little background about the company and their products. Sokenbicha: The perfect blend of ancient wisdom and modern taste.
Each of the 5 teas are based on the elements of the earth. Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, and Water. It is believed that each element is interrelated with the others and only proper balance between all the elements will result in health and well being. The science behind the teas is based on Kampo, a traditional Japanese herbal approach. To learn more visit their website.

The first tea I tried is Revive. It has floral undertones and is made with a blend of oolong tea and contains natural botanicals. It has a very slightly sweet flavor even though it contains no sugar.

The next is Defend. It contains ginseng for a natural immunity boost and has a slightly stronger taste than revive. It is also a oolong tea blend

Purify smells like citrus and has a slight citrusy flavor. This one is an aromatic green tea blend. Each of the flavors is more intense than the last (probably why they had me taste them in this order!) I'm actually surprised I don't like this one the best since I drink green tea every day. So far Defend is my favorite flavor.

Shape is a bold barley tea blend. This one has a bite to it. People who enjoy strong tea would be a fan of this one.

Skin smells spicy and is made with a full bodied barley tea blend. This is the strongest of the varieties and contains cinnamon and ginger.

Sokenbicha is a new line being offered exclusively at Whole Foods. I would definitely check them out and would buy Revive and Defend for sure!

Another great thing to know about the company is their bottles are 30% plant based and 100% recyclable. Production waste created in making their products is recycled as mulch. They also support growers corporate social responsibility.( This gives workers housing and health care, child care and mandatory schooling, and CSR customer partnership projects.) All of their tea leaves are 100% hand plucked so there are no pollutants generated from harvesting machines, and hydroelectricity is used at their facilities.

Now onto the giveaway, if you'd like to be entered to win, comment to let me know which variety you think you'd like to try! They are giving away 2 t-shirts, 2 eco friendly shopping bags with samples of the tea, and 2 wellness journals! That's right, Sokenbicha is allowing me to pick SIX winners!!
You have until Tuesday October 19th at 12 noon EST to enter to win!

So tell me, which flavor do you think would be your favorite?
