This new line of low-calorie, tea-infused waters is certified organic by the US Department of Agriculture (USDA) and combines the antioxidant benefits of green tea with the hydration of natural spring water.
Arizona Tea Waters start with Poland Spring Brand Natural Spring Water from spring sources in Maine, which is then combined with organic green tea, organic cane juice and fruit extracts. The result is a beverage with just 20 calories per 8oz serving. In addition to Arizona’s classic Green Tea, the new line includes Yumberry Green Tea, Mandarin Orange Green Tea and Pomegranate Green Tea.
Arizona Tea Waters is the first joint project of Arizona Beverages and Nestlé Waters. About the partnership, Don Vultaggio, chairman of Arizona Beverages, said: “We’re not only excited about this breakthrough new organic product, but we’re ecstatic to be partnering with the leading bottler of natural spring water, Nestlé Waters North America.”
“For generations, Poland Spring has offered people healthful hydration,” said Tim Brown, executive vice president retail operations for Nestlé Waters (which produces Poland Spring). “For those who sometimes want their water with a twist of flavour, Arizona Tea Waters delivers a delicious variation. It’s a natural fit, and we’re delighted that Poland Spring is a key ingredient in this unique, organic, tea-infused water.”
The Arizona Tea Waters are currently available in select northeast US markets. As the product rolls out to additional markets throughout 2009, it will use other Nestlé Waters’ regionally sourced waters such as Ozarka Brand Natural Spring Water in the central south region, Deer Park Brand Natural Spring Water in the mid-Atlantic, and Zephyrhills Brand Natural Spring Water in the south.
The suggested retail price is $1.49 a bottle. In order to help protect the natural antioxidants and flavour of the tea from light and oxygen deterioration, each beverage is packaged in a 20oz amber PET plastic bottle with an oxygen barrier.
