FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
VAIL, Colo. — With a name that translates as “tomorrow’s leaf,” the ashitaba plant of Japan’s southern islands is remarkable in its own right. After a leaf has been harvested in the morning, it will often be replaced overnight, making for an impressive spectacle of natural regeneration. People living in the ashitaba plant’s native range have long appreciated it for many other reasons, too, using it regularly in everything from noodles, tea, and ice cream to traditional medicine.
Thanks to a new special offer at experiencing everything ashitaba has to offer has never been more affordable. For a limited time, Kenko shoppers can purchase top-quality, carefully harvested ashitaba tea at a discount of more than one-third off the regular price. The kenko.green website also includes educational resources that can help visitors learn more about the ashitaba plant’s history, significance, and appeal.
“Ashitaba is considered by many one of the natural world’s best-kept secrets, but awareness about the plant is building rapidly worldwide,” said Kenko representative Nick Eberle, “Packed with almost twice the antioxidants of green tea and lots of health-promoting minerals, ashitaba truly deserves the attention it is receiving. We’re proud to offer our customers access to the best ceremonial grade of ashitaba tea. We work directly with Japanese farmers who have cultivated their land for generations to offer only the finest tea under the Kenko Ashitaba label. Thanks to our new, ongoing sale, it has never been easier or more affordable to stock up on ashitaba tea or try it for the first time.”
Japan comprises more than 6,000 islands, of which only around 400 are currently inhabited. The four largest Japanese islands combined host the vast majority of the country’s population and land mass, but many of the smaller ones have their own distinct cultures, histories, and traditions. With a population of around 10,000 and an area of about 25 square miles, the small southern island of Hachijo-jima is the natural home of the Angelica keiskei Koidzumi plant, known in Japanese as “ashitaba.”
For centuries, people living on Hachijo-jima and in other places where it has since been spread and cultivated have made ashitaba a central part of everyday life. The hardy, fast-growing plant has also begun to attract a great deal of attention around the world, with antioxidant levels nearly twice those typical of green tea, for example, leading many to explore what the plant has to offer.
