The Benefits of Suntory Iyemon Tokucha Green Tea
Various green tea PET bottles with particular medical benefits have come out one after another in Japan over the last decade and gained popularity.
One of the pioneers of such products is Suntory Iyemon Tokucha and I actually love the healthy Japanese green tea.
Suntory Iyemon Toku-Cha Green Tea
The Iyemon Toku-Cha (特茶 : literally “Special Tea”) green tea PET bottle was first introduced into Japan’s market in 2013 by Suntory.
The Iyemon Tokucha is a functional beverage with a certain medical benefit designated as a “Tokuho (トクホ : Food for Specified Health Uses)” by the Government of Japan.
As the green Japanese text says, the Iyemon Tokucha green tea contains “quercetin glycoside”, which enhances the activity of the lipolytic enzyme and helps reduce body fat.
Quercetin glycoside is a type of polyphenol of which vegetables such as onion and broccoli contain a lot.
I have been drinking one bottle of the Tokucha green tea every day since several years ago and my periodic health checkup results concerning lipids are every time pretty good from then on.
Dose and Nutrition Facts
In fact, the description says that the dose is one bottle a day and the Tokucha green tea bottle contains 110mg quercetin glycoside, 230mg catechin, and 90mg caffein.
The Iyemon Toku-Cha special green tea is earthy and a little bitter, but easy to drink. I think it has a normal green tea taste familiar to us Japanese.
The thought that the component Quercetin Glycoside is like a medicine might make me feel the slight bitterness.
Where to Buy Iyemon Tokucha Green Tea
Suntory Iyemon Tokucha Green Tea is sold in supermarkets, convenience stores, drug stores, and vending machines. In short, the special green tea is available in every corner of the country.
