COLORADO TEA MANUFACTURER TEAKOE INTRODUCES CRAFT ICED TEA™ TO RETAIL; BLENDING FULL-FLAVORED REFRESHMENTS USING A ‘CRAFTSMANSHIP’ MENTALITY
LAKEWOOD, CO ( June 17, 2014 ) - Colorado Tea Manufacturer Teakoe®, a leader in foodservice beverage solutions, uses their passion for blending refreshing iced teas to redefine the tea experience. Teakoe is currently served in over 190 restaurants throughout Colorado and surrounding states. Due to an overwhelming request from customers asking how they can buy the tea to brew at home, Teakoe responded by creating a small batch line of Craft Iced Tea™ exclusively for retail. “We create big flavors by paying close attention to the little details,” says Founder Pete Jokisch. “We’ve harnessed the unique ability to formulate full-flavored refreshment using a ‘craftsmanship’ mentality.” Each blend is crafted in small batches and specifically developed to taste great over ice using Non-GMO ingredients; all tasted, selected and packaged by Teakoe in Lakewood, CO. The collection displays an experience driven, ‘Micro-Brewery’ inspired design and branding style unlike anything else on the shelves.
Additionally, Teakoe is leading the charge to rebuild the bee population in communities where they do business, starting with Colorado. Through the “Buy Teakoe, Build a Beehive” initiative, Teakoe sponsors and builds beehives within the local community. Their partnership with Frangiosa Farms (Parker, CO) has already led to 4 new hives being built, with more to come – all of which help increase crop pollination, support natural agricultural practices and improve the local ecosystem where we live, work and play.
Teakoe’s Craft Iced Teas are currently available in select Whole Foods Markets and fine gourmet retailers ensuring a refreshing selection of iced tea just in time for summer! Visit www.teakoe.com to see a full list of retail outlets.
