The REAL Drinks Co. has unveiled its RTD canned versions of Royal Flush and Dry Dragon sparkling teas. Founded in 2017, REAL Drinks now produces its beverages in the heart of Buckinghamshire, in the UK’s first sustainable, state of the art Fermentery in the grounds of the Waddesdon Estate.
The naturally fermented sparkling teas are non-alcoholic alternatives to Champagne and Sparkling Wine, according to the company, offering flavours that can be paired with seasonal foods such as barbequed chargrilled vegetables and seasonal desserts for alfresco occasions.
REAL utilises winemaking techniques to some of the world’s finest loose-leaf teas. Made using First Flush Darjeeling, known as the ‘Queen of Teas’, Royal Flush has notes of blackcurrant, rhubarb, peach, and a touch of spice.
Dry Dragon is crafted with pan-fired Dragonwell green tea, offering notes of honeydew melon and lemon, concluding with a nutty finish. Dry Dragon pairs with seasonal summer salads and shellfish platters.
“We’re not just launching ready-to-drink beverages, we’re rewriting the alcohol-free rulebook,” explains David Begg, founder of The REAL Drinks Co., “our Sparkling Teas deliver superior flavour, without the alcohol, for any occasion.”
REAL Royal Flush and Dry Dragon cans are now available to purchase at an RRP of GBP £35 per case of 12.
