Choice Organic Teas Refreshes Foodservice Iced Tea

Seattle, WA July 11, 2007 – To help beat the heat of summer, Choice Organic Teas introduces three delicious, organic and Fair Trade Certified™ iced teas for foodservice. Organic Black Iced Tea, Organic Mango Ceylon Iced Tea and Organic Moroccan Mint Green Iced Tea are available in cases of 30 pre-portioned 3-ounce packets, which yield 3 gallons of freshly steeped tea when used in an automatic iced tea brewer. These products will debut at the National Association of College and University Food Service’s Annual Conference in Seattle on July 12 – 13, 2007. For samples and information on these new iced tea products, stop by booth 144.

Black Iced Tea is sure to please iced tea lovers looking for a classic taste. Choice Organic Teas’ blend stands apart with its clear auburn color, bright, thirst-quenching flavor, and brisk strength. Mango Ceylon Iced Tea gets its tropical flair from accents of bright, juicy mango and golden marigold petals. Choice Organic Teas carefully blends select black teas to create a clear and refreshing glass. Moroccan Mint Green Iced Tea is Choice Organic Teas’ interpretation of a traditional favorite. It’s lively and refreshing with a clear, sunny color in the glass. Flavorful green tea, cooling peppermint, and crisp spearmint unite in this vibrant iced tea with a modern, healthy appeal.

“We’re thrilled to introduce refreshing, thirst quenching, organic and Fair Trade Certified Iced Teas for foodservice,” says Choice Organic Teas founder Blake Rankin. “The demand is increasing as discerning consumers expect restaurants, hotels, cafes, spas and other foodservice venues to offer fresh and healthy, low-calorie summertime beverages to help them stay hydrated and combat the heat.”
