Teapigs Encourages Stockists to Make Iced Tea this Summer
With summer here, Teapigs is embracing the demand from customers for all-natural, refreshing drinks.
Freshly brewed iced teas taste better than pre-bottled iced teas or syrups, and they are easy and quick for café operators to prepare, and can help keep those tea sales high all year round. Brentford, England-based Teapigs is encouraging their stockists (cafés, delis and restaurant that serve Teapigs teas) to use Teapigs tea temples to make freshly brewed iced teas in the summer.
“A lot of operators assume that their tea sales will decline in the warmer months, but this doesn’t have to be the case” says Louise Cheadle, Teapigs tea taster. “Because our tea temples contain real ingredients (like real pieces of fruit or whole cardamom pods) they’re bags of real, intense flavour and this makes them super versatile. Operators should consider making iced teas in the summer or tea lattes in the winter, and then promoting this with customers as a ‘tea of the week’ or ‘tea of the month’.”
Teapigs is offering free training to teapigs’ stockists at their in-house tea school in Brentford, where stockists can learn more about tea and how to make a variety of tea recipes, including super fruit iced tea, chocolate and mint tea shake and a matcha mocktail. The tea school teaches stockists how to easily produce individual servings of these drinks as well as supplying instructions for larger-scale foodservice preparation, such as the recipe above.
