Tea of a Kind
by Don Bandow, Director of Grocery Buying
Have you ever gone to drink what you thought was a bottle of refreshing, shelf stable brewed tea only to find a stale, bitter taste that left you imagining it’s journey from warehouse to shelf through a number of compromising environmental factors? At this point, you may be tempted to put the drink down and not finish it. It’s not to say that this happens often, but I like my odds against it ever happening with a new tea line that we are proud to offer at Bristol Farms; Tea of a Kind.
At first glance, Tea of a Kind looks like an average bottle of water….which it is…and it only becomes a fresh brewed tea once the patented Gizmo® cap is twisted off and the all natural flavors, colors, real brewed tea, and powerful antioxidants are released with over 90psi of pressure from the cap. This was the first experience of its kind for me and definitely brought a smile to my face. It’s fun to use and it’s comforting to know that the bottled tea I’m about to enjoy is absolutely fresh because it’s protected from damaging outside influences.
Tea of a Kind comes in three flavors and only 20 calories per 16 oz. bottle: Citrus Mint Green Tea, Pomegranate Acai White Tea or Peach Ginger Black Tea. These teas are preservative free and deliver the functional benefits of powerful antioxidants.
