These and other fine teas from The Republic of Tea, including u•matcha™ and Be Active® Teas, will be available at booth number 570.

The Republic of Tea’s Iced Tea Large Pouches Collection is all-natural and Certified Gluten-Free. Each tin features a sleek, retro design and contains eight large, unbleached tea pouches; each pouch is perfectly portioned for easy to steep, healthy iced tea.

The refreshing collection includes four delicious flavors: Ginger Peach Black Iced Tea, Hibiscus Sangria Herbal Iced Tea, Limón Black Iced Tea and Watermelon Mint Black Iced Tea, and will be available for purchase beginning in March 2013.

Ancient “wonder” herbs that are unique in flavor and functionality inspire the premium line of SuperHerb™ Teas. Each of the all-natural, caffeine-free, Certified Gluten-Free herbal teas contain various nutrients and antioxidants that assist in attaining peak performance, strength, longevity and can be an easy and satisfying part of a daily wellness regimen.

The first to launch in the SuperHerb collection is Moringa – tea for nourishment. The Moringa leaves in this particular tea are combined with green rooibos from Rainforest Alliance Certified™ farms to intensify its beneficial effects while a touch of mango adds a sweet note to the grassy, herbal base. Moringa SuperHerb tea will be available for purchase in February 2013; the full collection will become available later in the spring.

The Republic of Tea’s line of premium, stone-ground Japanese Matcha green tea first launched in the summer of 2012.
