At Mariko we strive to create great tasting, healthy, less sweet tasting beverages.
WE SOURCE THE BEST:
We start with sourcing premium unprocessed green tea leaves
In small batches we add the leaves to heated water and leave to brew to extract all the flavour and antioxidants from the leaves before caning/bottling. Just like you would do at home!
Our beverages contain zero sugar, sweeteners or calories. Just naturally delicious!

For centuries green tea has been prized not only for its delicate and exceptionally refreshing taste, but for its role in maintaining good health. As with many other traditional remedies, a great many studies have been conducted around the world to try to assess green tea’s health benefits. These studies have focused particularly its potential to fight cancer and heart disease as well as its role in lowering cholesterol, burning fat, preventing diabetes and stroke, and staving off dementia.
A Powerhouse of Antioxidants
The health benefits of green tea are believed to be due to its high content of antioxidants. Green tea is the best food source of a particular group of antioxidants known as catachins. In test tubes, catechins are more powerful than vitamins C and E in halting oxidative damage to cells and appear to have other disease-fighting properties. Studies have found an association between consuming green tea and a reduced risk for several cancers, including, skin, breast, lung, colon, esophageal, and bladder. Green tea’s antioxidants scavenge for free radicals that can damage DNA and contribute to cancer, blood clots, and atherosclerosis. Because of green tea’s minimal processing, green tea’s unique catechins, especially epigallocatechin-3-gallate (EGCG), are more concentrated.
