New Leaf Brands announces Sweet Tea flavor


SCOTTSDALE, ARIZONA – October 8, 2009 – New Leaf Brands, a wholly-owned subsidiary of Baywood International, Inc. (OTCBB: BAYW) (“Company”), today announced their newest flavor, Sweet Tea, to its line of all-natural ready-to-drink teas. New Leaf’s version of Sweet Tea is a smooth blend of black tea and evaporated organic pure cane sugar, giving the product a smooth and refined taste. Sweet Tea is a form of iced tea in which pure cane sugar is added to the tea while it is still hot, allowing for super saturation of the solution. This enables the tea to hold more dissolved sweetener than under colder temperatures. Popularity for sweet teas is seen most in the Southern United States.

With 24 grams of sugar per serving, as opposed to 19 grams in their other flavors, it is the perfect remedy for any sweet tooth. Ingredients include Premium Brewed Black Tea Blend, Filtered Water, Organic Evaporated Cane Sugar and Citric Acid.

“Turning over a New Leaf has always been about looking for something better. Whether better means health, taste or just a state of mind – that is what we are about,” stated Eric Skae, Founder and President of New Leaf.
