The Republic of Tea Unveils New Teas at Summer Fancy Food Show 2015

Authentic 100% white tea only grows in the majestic mountains of China’s Fujian Province. Tender white downy buds are hand-plucked just two days of the year, right before the leaf opens. With a small yield, and a high demand, it remains one of the world’s most rare teas. Now with beautiful updated tea tins, the 100% White Tea collection now features six alluring flavors, including Emperor’s White Tea, Asian Jasmine White Tea, Orange Blossom White Tea, Ginger Peach White Tea, and the all-new Honey Mango White Tea and Cucumber Mint White Tea.

The Sonoma Teas collection represents a new concept in an herbal tea blend. The appreciation of Sonoma County’s renowned vineyards has been previously relegated only to wine enthusiasts. With the introduction of this new tea collection, everyone can now enjoy a refreshing beverage that showcases the best qualities and flavors from fine wine grape skins. Free of caffeine, alcohol, and calories, Sonoma Teas are a wonderful alternative to high calorie soft drinks and sugary juices. The fine wine grape skins used in the Sonoma Teas collection also contain antioxidants, which contribute to a diverse and healthy diet. The collection showcases three varietals for iced tea, including Sonoma Chardonnay, Sonoma Rosé, and Sonoma Cabernet, as well as a Mulled Zin Hot Tea. Similar to wine, the four offerings in the Sonoma Tea collection impart unique and identifying characteristics.

The Republic of Tea is the first company to introduce a complete line of high-caffeine natural energy teas. The HiCAF Tea Collection is all-natural and Certified Gluten-Free and has almost twice the caffeine than a cup of coffee, which allows for a better buzz. The collection now includes six innovative, Certified Gluten-Free flavors: Breakfast Black Tea (Non-GMO Project verified), Caramel Black Tea, Pom-berry Black Tea, Toasted Coconut Black Tea, Gingermint Green Tea, and the newest, Cinnamon Toast Black Tea, which was named a 2015 food trend in the “Breakfast All Day” category by the Specialty Food Association.

Known as complete protein, chia seeds bring fiber and omega-3 fatty acids to The Republic of Tea’s invigorating chia tea collection. From the USDA Organic Matchia Tea to the new USDA Organic ChiaChai Tea, this line of teas packs an additional punch of healthful nutrients with each sip.

Spicing up the season is easy with The Republic of Tea’s collection of holiday teas. From Caramel Apple Red Tea to Sonoma Mulled Zin Hot Tea to Hibiscus Cranberry Holiday Tea, these teas steep festive flavors to warm the heart and hearth during the holidays.
