Rishi Tea & Botanicals has expanded its portfolio with the launch of Rishi Sparkling Botanicals, as it aims to capitalise on the growth of the ready-to-drink market.
The range is currently available in six flavours: Black Lemon, Dandelion Ginger, Grapefruit Quince, Patagonia Maqui, Schisandra Berry and Turmeric Saffron.
The Milwaukee-based company claims that each drink in the range has a unique ‘wellness function’ and contains no powders, extracts or added sugar.
Commenting on the launch, Rishi Tea & Botanicals’ president and founder Joshua Kaiser said: “We want to focus the passion and creativity of Rishi’s amazing team on something totally new and exciting—something that honours our enduring relationships with farmers and tea drinkers while transcending our core business of dried teas and botanicals.
“People love our teas but have less and less time to brew them. Tea drinkers are moving to bottled and canned teas to save their time but have few options that offer premium botanicals and high-end teas brewed without added sugar, sweeteners or acidic preservatives.
“Our new line of Sparkling Botanicals elevates RTD with craft brewing and meets this demand for real plants with real virtue.”
The range is currently available for an RRP of $3.99 per 12oz can from authorised distributors in the US and will be launched online in April 2020.
