UK-based cold brew tea brand Kaytea has expanded its flavour portfolio with the addition of Mango Yuzu.
Mango Yuzu joins Kaytea’s existing flavours such as Jasmine Grapefruit and Lemon Zest, to offer a more ‘exotic’ flavour profile. Yuzu is a small fruit that originates from East Asia and is known for its citrusy punch, often described as tasting like a combination of lemon, grapefruit and mandarin orange.
Kaytea’s founder, Kevin Tang, said: “There’s a growing clamour for clean deck soft drinks that provide refreshment that doesn’t come at the expense of health (i.e not rammed full of artificial sweeteners).
Organic white tea leaves are slowly cold-brewed to draw out as much flavour as possible, before being blended with natural mango and yuzu flavours. The drinks are vegan, gluten-free and contain 17 calories per 100ml can.
He continued: “Perhaps more importantly there’s a cry for undiluted transparency which is why we proudly talk about our drink making no spurious health claims. Of course, we could have sprinkled a handful of manmade vitamins within our drinks to claim some arbitrary functional prowess, but in truth, we’d rather be known for nailing refreshment!”
The ready-to-drink beverages are available at select retailers across the UK.
