teapigs introduces kombucha range
The UK Kombucha market is set to grow by 33% this year according to Nielson, and teapigs is celebrating this fact with the announcement that it will be the first recognised tea brand to make kombucha, with its very own range launching for general order (from 17 May). There will be three kombucha flavours available: original, ginger + lemongrass and peach + mango.
Each flavour is brewed in small batches in the UK with a live SCOBY, along with top quality teapigs tea sourced by trained tea taster & co founder, Louise Cheadle. teapigs Kombucha is 100% natural, featuring no artificial flavours or sweeteners. Additionally, 5p per can sale is donated to the teapigs ethical scheme which supports vulnerable young people in Rwanda (where teapigs sources much of its tea).
“Being in the tea world, kombucha is everywhere, and we couldn’t help but think there’s always been one thing missing from the hype – the tea! Rather than using syrups, juices of flavourings, we’ve got an award winning range of teas and fruit infusions so why not use those real brewed teas to make a delicious drink? We figured better tea, equals better booch,” says Louise Cheadle.
“It’s going to be a summer of picnics and BBQs so these handy cans are the perfect drink to take to the park or enjoy at home. Kombucha is also massively popular with those looking for healthier soft drinks or beverages that can be drunk as a grown up alcohol free alternative – there’s only so much squash you can drink, right? Kombucha really ticks all the boxes for those drinks occasions throughout the day making it a must stock item.”
Available at www.teapigs.co.uk and for general wholesale order, the teapigs kombucha has an RRP of £1.90 per can (250ml), with a 12 month shelf life. The product is available in 6 & 12 cans per case.
