Suntory Tokucha Premium vs. Tokucha Green Tea

I’m a long-time lover of Suntory Tokucha Green Tea, and I have continued drinking the Tokuho beverage almost every day since the last post about it.

This year (2022), Tokucha (特茶) marked the 10th anniversary since its release and evolved into Tokucha Premium.

The PET bottle of Tokucha Premium looks more stylish than its previous edition Tokucha Green Tea.

But are there any differences in contents? This time, I did some research about that.


Tokucha Premium Benefits Ingredients

First of all, the health benefits of helping reduce body fat appear to be unchanged. So does the dosage (500 ml a day).

Tokucha Premium uses quercetin gold, but it is a name given by Suntory, and the component is identical to quercetin glycoside.

However, according to this announcement, the premium Tokucha enriches the flavor by using pot-roasted tea and adding some Gyokuro.

Though, I didn’t realize the difference in taste until I read that article.

In conclusion, the maker Suntory seems to have mainly upgraded the packaging design and taste,

as quercetin gold and glycoside are the same. And so are the amount used and health benefits.
