London tea startup KAYTEA announces partnership with Sushi Gourmet

A London based tea startup has announced that it’s partnering with Sushi Gourmet and will have its products launched in 167 Sainsbury’s supermarkets across the UK.

KAYTEA – founded by tea enthusiast Kevin Tang (28) in 2020 – is a London tea company stocking several loose leaf teas, matcha and superfood blends, and their flagship cold brew ice teas which earned them their recent partnership with Gourmet Sushi.

3 KAYTEA organic cold brew ice tea cans are currently being launched in Sushi Gourmet:

  • Mango Yuzu White Tea – this white tea infusion blends the sharp flavour of yuzu with succulent, sweet mango to create a vibrant flavour profile.
  • Jasmine Grapefruit Green Tea – an organic jasmine green tea with hints of the light, refreshing zest of grapefruit.
  • Lemon Zest Black Tea – the ultimate black tea infusion with zesty lemon flavours from the Italian Amalfi Coast.

KAYTEA and Sushi Gourmet have already launched in Sainsbury’s in Nine Elms and Merton (both in London), with plans to expand into 165 more locations nationwide in the coming months.

Founder Kevin says:

“I started KAYTEA to bring tea and ice tea to the limelight and make it fun and exciting for a new generation of consumers. As a globally influenced brand with East Asian roots, I think our range of ice teas is a fantastic fit for Sushi Gourmet and Sainsbury’s and complements their food offerings really well.

Our core products are organic, low calorie, and sustainably packaged in cans with exciting flavours which really resonate with their target audience and stand out on the shelf. We are very grateful for the team at Sushi Gourmet and Sainsbury’s for believing in our products and we hope customers will enjoy the refreshing drinks this summer and beyond”.
