Ito En is just a bit late to the sweetened tea game, but their entries do a great job of blending appealing flavor and the high quality tea that the company is known for. This mildly sweetened mixture has a full bodied brew of oolong tea as its base, complete with a grassy note and a slightly bitter finish. The addition of sugar and mango flavoring help cut the bitterness and add an additional level of flavor to the mix. There’s a light aftertaste from this product, which is likely from the tea, but otherwise the product has a rather smooth tasting body. Like the other varieties, this variety looks very much like the unsweetened Teas’ Tea line, which might create somewhat of an identity crisis for this product. Otherwise, it’s hard not to like the clean and sophisticated look of this 16.9 oz. bottle. It’s appealing to the eye and gives off the vibe that the tea masters were hard at work when crafting this product. Overall, a satisfying and enjoyable product that’s cleanly executed, but it’s going to be hard for this product to compete with the more established and personable brands that are already out there.
