Takeya USA announced that its Deluxe Iced Tea Beverage System was named “Best New Product – Teaware” by the World Tea Expo. It was selected from among thousands of companies, the company noted.
“Takeya is reinventing iced tea by offering people an everyday, healthy alternative to soda and other sugary beverages that can easily be made at home in minutes,” said John Lown, president and CEO of Takeya USA. “Our method of freshly brewed and ‘immediately chilled’ iced tea beverages will change your mind about how you view iced tea as a go-to beverage, so the World Tea Expo’s recognition of our Deluxe Iced Tea Beverage System as a complete solution is quite an honor.”
The Deluxe Iced Tea Beverage System (which has a suggested retail of $79.99), uses patented Flash Chill technology, coupled with pre-measured packets of premium loose leaf teas and beverage-making accessories, to make iced tea quickly and easily, the company said.
The system includes: a two-quart iced tea maker; tea infuser, infuser extender and infuser holder; fruit infuser, citrus juicer, thermo jacket, and an iced tea variety pack, including six packets of Takeya’s proprietary whole-leaf, loose-leaf tea blends— Coconut Vibe, Hibiscus Pomegranate and Tropical Black; as well as the Takeya Iced Tea Reinvented recipe book, featuring a collection of 50 recipes.
The 2014 World Tea Expo’s “Best New Product” awards were held in conjunction with the annual World Tea Expo, which took place last month in Long Beach, CA.
