Our loyal customers, who are never more than a Facebook comment or tweet away, had encouraged us to come up with a solution more sustainable for cold brewing loose leaf tea on the go than one that works only with bottled water. We listened.
Boulder, CO (PRWEB) August 29, 2013
The Tea Spot announces today a new product in development for making cold brewed tea easy and eco-friendly. The newest Steepware® product will be a reusable water bottle paired with the Steep & Go™ cold brew tea filter with sport cap, designed for cold brewing loose leaf tea on-the-go.
Steep & Go™ gives health conscious consumers a fresh-brewed bottled tea alternative. Ready-to-drink teas are a rapidly growing sector of the US tea market, as consumers look to reduce their intake of sweet carbonated beverages. All shelf-stable bottled teas contain some form of preservative, however. Steep & Go™ is a solution for making fresh tea in a water bottle. The Tea Spot also offers Cold Infusions cold brew tea packs – organic tea blends that infuse rapidly in cool or room temperature water. This set of products offers an on-the-go tea option packed with freshly infused antioxidants and vitamins, while free from preservatives, sugar, and flavorings. With the addition of a reusable cold brewing bottle in the Steepware® line, the Steep & Go™ cold brew bottle now makes for a sustainable alternative to bottled teas as well, appealing to environmentally minded consumers.
The Tea Spot’s CEO and Steepware® developer, Maria Uspenski, announced the development of the new product: "Our Steep & Go product has enjoyed tremendously positive customer acceptance. Our loyal customers, who are never more than a Facebook comment or tweet away, had encouraged us to come up with a solution more sustainable for cold brewing loose leaf tea on the go than one that works only with bottled water. We listened, worked hard on a design, sourced the best possible material, and now have a sleek and practical alternative on the way, which we will be able to offer our customers in time for the 2013 holiday season."
The Steepware® cold brew bottle will be available with all three color options of the Steep & Go™ filters: Ocean, Violet and Green Tea. It will be available for sale at The Tea Spot’s online tea store, http//:theteaspot.com, later in 2013 for $14.95.
Cold Infusions cold brew tea packs come in two fast-brewing tea blends: Keep Fit & Chill Out. They are available in single-serving packs for $1.29, and 12-unit cases of individual packs for $12.99.
Cold Infusions "Keep Fit" is a 100% organic green tea blend with a natural metabolism boost. A blend of single-estate Chinese green tea with green rooibos and lemon myrtle make this fitness tea light, flavorful, and a natural source of antioxidants.
Cold Infusions "Chill Out" is a 100% organic blend of caffeine-free herbals. This blend of fast-brewing tart hibiscus petals is naturally sweetened with licorice root and peppermint leaves. The three ingredients are blended to create a well-rounded and refreshing sugar-free hydrating decaf tea, great for any time of day.
"Cold Infusions" cold brew tea packs work ideally with the Steep & Go™ cold brew tea filter. Steep & Go™ was a best new product award winner at the 2012 World Tea Expo.
