BioLife Marketing Launches New Healthy Tea’s That Are Produced from Cat Whiskers Herb, Roselle Flower and Ginger 

Consumers in Singapore are the first to savour the three new types of Good Image Tea™ at the Food & Beverage Fair 2007. Online purchases of Good Image Tea products now available via online payment portal BuyButtonz.com 

Singapore. March 14, 2007  BioLife Marketing, the sole distributor of the Good Image Tea™ today releases three new types of tea during the Food & Beverage Fair 2007 in Singapore. Like the classic Good Image Tea™ , the Good Image Cat Whiskers Tea, Good Image Roselle Tea and Good Image Ginger Tea are uniquely formulated under the guidance of Dr. Aoyama Kanahiro from the University of Tokyo and Professor of ShengYang Medicine University of China. Each is produced from traditional herbs and is manufactured by BioLife Marketing’s associated GMP-certified herbal manufacturing plant in Malaysia. 

“Tea has been appreciated for a few thousands years now and its benefits are easily found by doing a search on the Internet. As a healthy beverage, the number of consumers is growing annually. Since the successful launch of the Good Image Tea™ five years ago in Malaysia and three years ago in Singapore, we have been getting constant feedback from our customers to create variations out of other great traditional herbs.” said Ang Ah Sin, General Manager of BioLife Marketing.

Commenting on Good Image Tea, Wellness Consultant, Ong Kuan Kuan stated, “I’m in the wellness business and am very familiar with the various health cleansing products in the market. When I was introduced to Good Image Tea recently, apart from its good cleansing capability, I was pretty impressed with the refreshing feeling derived as the warmth built up in my body coupled with its cool minty aftertaste.” 

Good Image Cat Whiskers Tea is derived from the traditional tropical Clerodendranthus Spicatus herb, better known as ShenCha (kidney tea) or MaoXuCao (Cat Whiskers herb) in Chinese. ShenCha is believed to be anti-inflammatory, anti-allergy, anti-hypersensitivity and diuretic properties. Good Image Cat Whiskers Tea is blended with Wulong Tea, Tea Polyphenols or ShengDi生地as well as with another traditional herb called Glycyrrhiza Uralensis or GanCao甘草). 

Good Image Roselle Tea is derived from the flower of another traditional herb called Roselle or LuoShenHua (洛神花) in Chinese. Roselle is known for promoting healthy intestinal and urinary systems. The unique blending with Mentha, Glycyrrhiza Uralensis and Green Tea gives a sweet and subtly sour fragrance to the Good Image Roselle Tea, thus making it a refreshing, thirst quenching and healthy drink.Good Image Ginger Tea is produced from high quality dry ginger and uniquely blended with Mentha, Glycyrrhiza Uralensis and Lycium or QiZi(杞子). Thus instead of the strong gingery smell, Good Image Ginger Tea gives a subtle mint fragrance while delivering the warming and traditional effects of the ginger and aids in digestion. 

To ensure freshness, portability and ease of storage, all Good Image teabags are individually sealed. They are free from any preservative or artificial colouring”, said Mr. Lai Liew Ming, Managing Director of Comfort Herbal Manufacturing Sdn Bdn.  BioLife’s vision is to facilitate ‘Healthy Indulgence’ and we will continue to develop new products based on the other traditional herbs that appeal and be beneficial to the health-conscious community. We expect our revenue to increase ten fold by the end of 2007”, said Ang.

Mr. Ang Ah SinBioLife Marketing, the sole distributor of the Good Image Tea today announced that Mr. Ang Ah Sin, a local I.T. professional of more than 20 years has joined the SME as one of its partners as well as its General Manager.

The call into entrepreneurship was never so strong until recently. With the invitation by 2 good and trusted friends reinforced with the support from my family and other friends, I decided to take the plunge into this different but exciting industry,” said Ang.

Ang’s experience spanned across from technical support to sales and marketing; and spent more than 5 years with a key system integrator in the ’80s, more than 10 years with major distributors such as Tech Pacific in the ’90s and until recently with major manufacturers such as Trend Micro Inc. He was highly sought by the media for his views on Infocomm Security.

Ang holds a Bachelor of Science (Hons) degree in Business and Management Studies (Marketing).

As its General Manager, Ang will be handling the day to day business, develop and execute strategic growth plans. This will include increasing the product range under the Good Image Tea brand, create new product lines and recruit related agencies; developing the channel in Singapore as well as internationally.

Any new venture will face plenty of uncertainties and challenges. I am confident because the consumers around the world are getting more and more health conscious; tea consumption in the world was reported to rank second only to water consumption; and one of the greatest competitive advantages of BioLife Marketing is that we have an associated GMP-certified manufacturing plant in Malaysia. It has been manufacturing health products for other brands in the region for more than 10 years now and is also manufacturing for our own brand, Good Image Tea™,” said Ang.

Good Image Tea™ was uniquely formulated by Dr. Aoyama Kanahiro from the University of Tokyo and Professor of ShengYang Medicine University of China. The detoxification green tea which also eliminates excessive fats in the body was launched in Malaysia five years ago and three years ago in Singapore. Our success indicated that we are on the right track in this industry and Ang will bring to the group a whole new perspective and drive the growth,” said Mr. Lai Liew Min, Managing Director of Comfort Herbal Manufacturing Sdn Bdn
