Ayala’s Herbal Tea to Debut Exclusively at Wegmans and The Fresh Market

BALA CYNWYD, Pa. — Summer is in full swing, and with consumers thirsting for healthier icy drinks, Ayala’s Herbal Water, Wegmans and The Fresh Market are offering new innovative, healthy, relaxing and refreshing drinks, to debut exclusively in these chains. True to Ayala’s Herbal Water’s herbal roots the new beverages combine both exotic and popular culinary herbs and spices to create a delightful ready-to-drink herbal tea.

“Among hot tea drinkers, herbal teas capture a wide audience – people who seek a caffeine free uplifting and calming drink rather than a traditional tea. We are bringing the herbal tea trend to the cold beverage isle with refreshing, calorie-free new offerings,” said co-founder, creator and pediatrician Dr. Ayala Laufer-Cahana.

Ayala’s Herbal Tea is bottled in 14oz glass and is available in four flavors: Chamomile Bergamot Vanilla, Peppermint Melissa Spearmint, Nutmeg Cacao nibs Cardamom and Rooibos Cinnamon Rose petal. The bottles proudly carry the organic seal and are certified kosher. Ayala’s Herbal Tea is available exclusively at Wegmans and The Fresh Market as of August 2013, and more widely come November.
