The Ryl Company debuts functional tea line

The Ryl Company is encouraging wellness enthusiasts to add more healthy, sustainable products to their shopping trips. It has announced its official launch across the Northeastern U.S. in Wegmans and select Whole Foods Market stores, with additional launches in Wakefern and nationwide Sprouts Farmers Market planned in the coming months.

Beverage industry executive Blodin Ukella, who grew up drinking tea as a wellness remedy in a Kosovo refugee family, founded The Ryl Company after noticing a lack of flavourful options with healthy ingredients on the market.

After raising $6.7 million from strategic investors and an intensive nine-month R&D process, The Ryl Company invented proprietary “Ryl Polyphenol Technology” – a unique method and formula that delivers 200mg tea polyphenols consistently to each can. The line includes irresistibly indulgent taste profiles of nostalgic, well known iced tea flavours, while delivering similar health benefits of homemade steeped tea, amidst being zero sugar, zero calories, and containing no artificial ingredients. Ryl Tea is packaged in a fully recyclable aluminium can, challenging the traditional plastic-filled tea category.

Polyphenols are a category of plant compounds that offer an array of health benefits, including those relating to digestive and cerebral health. Their regular consumption can also protect against heart disease, type 2 diabetes, and some cancers.

The Ryl Company debuts the line with four different flavours, perfectly sweetened by all-natural monk fruit and stevia leaf extract: Original Green Tea, Peach Black Tea, Raspberry Black Tea, and Lemon Black Tea. All products are Non-GMO Project Verified, OU Kosher, Gluten-Free, and Plant-Based.

“Wellness consumers are looking for more ways to eat and drink”, The RYL Company’s Founder & CEO, Mr. Ukella, comments. “At The RYL Company, we are focused on pioneering what we call the ‘additive revolution’ by bringing added value versus disruptive value to both consumers and retail partners. We’re proud to deliver a trusted and transparent ingredient label via our proprietary Ryl Polyphenol Technology, and in parallel, add a delicious, functional wellness offering to the multibillion-dollar RTD tea category. Healthy can mean indulgence at the same time.”
