Best Tea-Based

Owl's Brew

When considering the vast number of offerings in the tea category, it’s clear that variety, in both flavor and packaging, is not an issue. True innovation, on the other hand, is much more difficult to come by. In marketing a line of tea-based cocktail mixers, however, Owl’s Brew has identified white space in the segment by utilizing tea not as the final product, but as an ingredient that sets the stage for blended drinks. While the formulation of the products is top-class -- one could even enjoy the tea straight -- the brand’s apothecary-style black glass bottle package is just as polished and impressive.
