L. HoltTea is my favorite beverage. In summer it’s a refreshing break from the heat, and in winter it keeps me warm and helps soothe my seasonal affective disorder symptoms. It’s one of the things I miss most about life in Japan: green tea at every meal and readily available in street-side vending machines or a corner convenience store at any time of day or night. That said, I’m always looking for new delicious teas to try: green, black, red or herbal. Lucky for me, Choice Organic Teas has all four.

Choice Organic Teas has recently released five new teas to celebrate the Good For All brand, a distinction given to environmentally conscious companies and products by the Jane Goodall Institute. A percentage of the profits from these new teas will go to support the JGI and its programs around the world. In addition to protecting endangered wildlife, a part of the proceeds from these teas will aid the Roots and Shoots Program, which strives to promote conservation among the youth of the world.

The Good For All brand appears on the boxes of the following new blends: Oothu Garden Green, Wild Forest Black, Decaffeinated English Breakfast, Rooibos Superfruit and Yerba Maté Mint. This week, I tried each of these teas.

Oothu Garden Green: This single estate tea is everything I want from a green blend: light and refreshing, with a pale golden color that reminds my of my favorite Chinese blends. Green tea in general is known to contain potentially cancer-fighting and immune-system building antioxidants.

Wild Forest Black: This energizing black tea blend is full and hearty, just the thing to get you through that afternoon slump. The leaves are plucked from trees in Southeastern Asia that are more than 500 years old, something I’m pretty sure no other tea I’ve drunk can claim (although apparently the oldest cultivated tea tree in the world is over 3200 years old!).

I am also a tea lover and when I traveled to Japan it was a great surprise to see tea sold at vending machines, I tried a lot of brands and all of them were great. Two times the vending machine blocked and I lost my money, too bad cannot be used on those tea vending machines to make sure the clients will be satisfied by buying from such machines.
