Coffee and tea beverages brew over at Natural Products Expo West 2017

Natural brands continue to disrupt the coffee and tea categories. At Natural Products Expo West 2017, we spotted coffee soda, coffee leaf tea, bamboo leaf tea, Kenyan purple tea, coffee and tea brewed in coconut water, beer-tea shandy, dissolvable tea and coffee powders, pour-overs, compostable pods, and plenty of cold brew, to name just a few innovations in this space. Here, Jessie Shafer, RD, editor-in-chief of Delicious Living magazine and Jenna Blumenfeld, senior food editor for New Hope Network, take a sip of a few new tea and coffee offerings from the show.
