Available in peach ginger black tea, citrus mint green tea, and pomegranate acai white tea variants, Tea of a Kind is 100% natural, contains only 20 calories per 16oz bottle and is loaded with antioxidants.
The flavours, real brewed tea and antioxidants are contained in the pressurised nitrogen chamber cap, keeping them fresh without the use of chemical preservatives. The chamber defends the ingredients against UV light, oxidation and other damaging conditions that degrade nutrients in most pre-mixed beverages. Once the cap is twisted, the ingredients burst into the bottle and self-mix, creating a colour change and a visual confirmation that the drink is fresh and ready to consume.
Tea of a Kind marks the first application of the Gizmo technology by Gizmo Beverages, run by the duo of founder and CEO Don Park and co-founder and president Walter Apodaca.
It was Park who discovered the first incarnation of the Gizmo. Brainstorming off the simple idea that he could use it to mix fresh lime juice into beer, he recognised the potential of the design in the beverage industry.
Don appointed Walter Apodaca as president in 2010, drawing on his expertise from a 20-year career in the beverage industry. Apodaca, who had worked his way up from loading beverage trucks to become an executive with Coca-Cola Enterprises, Coors Brewing Company and MillerCoors, realised the vast potential for the Gizmo technology. He compares it to the revolutionary impact the aluminium can had on the beverage industry.
