Last year’s hot weather very clearly highlighted the need for hydration with consumers demanding natural, low sugar drinks that deliver on flavour. To make sure everyone’s thirst stays quenched this summer, teapigs are launching their brand new range of cold brew infusions as an easy, quick and refreshing way to pep up your water.
“We have been working with cafés for the last few years encouraging them to make delicious jugs of iced teas where you boil the water to make a concentrate before chilling it down. This works well for some sites but not for all and can be especially challenging in locations with unpredictable footfall,” says Louise, teapigs tea taster. “Our new cold brew is perfect for cafés. The new range comes in three delicious flavours – lychee & rose, cucumber & apple and lemon, lime & ginger– and the infusions are specifically designed to brew quickly in cold water. The fresh ingredients with no artificial sweeteners, no sugar and no artificial flavours are an ideal healthy alternative to some of the more indulgent summer drinks and can be made in bulk for a foodservice offering or simply popped in a glass.”
Not only are the cold brew temples quick and easy for foodservice operators they are also great for retail shelves as customers are looking for tasty ways to hydrate on the go. “Simply drop one tea temple in cold water and that’s it,” says Louise. “No waiting for the kettle to boil, no added sugar, no sickly syrups. You bring the water, we’ll bring the flavour.”
So please meet lychee & rose, apple & cucumber and lemon, lime & ginger.
RRP £3.95 – 10 tea temples per box/6 boxes per case.

A gorgeously fruity yet floral combo of lychee and rose to see tea fans through all those long summer nights, bank holiday picnics and makeshift BBQs in the park.
