9/5/08: Drink of the Week

We get a lot of sugary-sweet sodas, juices and teas at the Imbibe office, so it was a nice surprise when a sample of Ito En's Gyokuro Bottled Tea showed up. Gyokuro is a Japanese green tea with a full-bodied earthy but toasty flavor. It's especially delicious served cold, as this canned version exemplifies. It has a pure and strong green tea flavor with no bitterness and no sweetness. And best of all, with this Drink of the Week, we don't have to feel guilty about heading back to the fridge for seconds.
