How Lemonade Turned Pink

How Lemonade Turned Pink

Most of us grew up with Pink Lemonade in our lives.  It was just the more fun version of Lemonade! It never seemed weird or nonsensical that it was pink, just cute! But when you do get thinking about Pink Lemonade there is no real reason why it should be pink.  I mean Pink Lemonade, although sometimes flavored with strawberries, cranberries or cherries, is usually just normal lemonade that has just been dyed pink with red food coloring.  Why does this make sense? Why red food coloring and not purple? How did this drink become such a sensation?

Well the origins of Pink Lemonade are actually kind of muddled.  There are two rival stories circulating the Internet.  The first says that in 1857 Pete Conklin, who was a concessions salesman at the circus, ran out of lemonade one day.  While he was rushing around trying to replace it he saw a bin full of pink water where a performer had just cleaned her pink tights! Rather than losing business he decided to sell this wash water and surprisingly it was a hit!

The other story also involves the circus but takes place in 1873.  Henry E. Allot a circus promoter was mixing up a batch of lemonade to sell and accidentally dropped a few red cinnamon candies into the batch turning it pink! He sold it anyway and was delighted at how much the customers loved it!

For the sake of our stomachs I prefer the second story. Although cinnamon and lemonade do not sound very compatible at least it was not wash water! But either way we are happy that pink lemonade got its start, no matter how it really began, because it is undeniable fun and cute! That’s why we decided to include a Pink Lemonade in our new line of Lemonades.  Also don’t worry we only use fruit and vegetable juice to color our Pink Lemonade, no candies or tights allowed!

Amazing Health Benefits of Black Tea

Amazing Health Benefits of Black Tea

Currently green tea seems to be the trendiest tea with the most health benefits associated with it. While it is true that green tea is incredibly good for you, black tea should not be forgotten! Black tea offers numerous amazing health benefits including lowering high cholesterol, high blood pressure and improving tooth decay, digestive problems, poor blood circulation, and asthma. 

Black tea has tannins which have a relaxing effect on the digestive system of the human body which makes it a great solution when your digestive system is upset.  Black tea also has theaflavins which help destroy abnormal cells in the body before they turn into cancerous cells. In addition to these benefits black tea has also been found to open airways in asthmatic people especially when drunken hot, reduce cholesterol levels and decrease risk of contracting heart ailments. 

The way that black tea is processed makes it as healthy as it is.  Unlike green or white tea, it is fermented and oxidized allowing unique qualities of the tea to develop.  All of these positive aspects make it unsurprising that it is one of the most popular drinks all over the world. Plus it is delicious! It is for all these reasons that we use black tea in nine out of ten of our refreshing iced tea flavors! If you want to learn more about black tea check out https://www.organicfacts.net/health-benefits/beverage/health-benefits-of-black-tea.html and if you want to try some delicious black tea pick up your favorite flavor of Long Island Iced Tea today!

Craft Brewing: A Hipster Revolution

Craft Brewing: A Hipster Revolution

When you hear the word craft-brewed, probably a picture of a mustachioed hipster in overalls drinking a beer somewhere in Portland, is the first thing that comes to mind. At least it is for me.  But in fact, craft brewing is not really as niche as these hipsters would like to think. 

By 1970 there were only 11 major beer companies left in the US, and they were all making basically the same thing.  But by the 80s home brewing as a concept was rising, mainly in CO and CA.  Fast-forward to 2015 and craft brewers have gathered 13% of the US beer market and a $22.3 billion dollar share of the industry.  So what made this craze take off, other than our Portland hipster?

Well craft-brewers offered variety and took a wild jump away from the 70s where every beer you could buy was a light lager.  Now you could buy from local or regional breweries and find a beer that was unique.  Choosing a beer became a way to express your self, instead of just blending into the crowd.

But you are probably thinking, okay but this is about beer, what about iced tea?  Well the definition of craft brewed is a small, independent, and traditional brewing operation, so Long Island Iced Tea is a craft brewed beverage!  We use handpicked tealeaves to brew all of our delicious flavors, never tea-flavored syrup like some of the other guys.  It tastes better and is better for you!  We are proud to be craft-brewed and be a part of the craze as a tea company.  So just like with craft-brewed beer, choosing a Long Island Iced Tea is a way to express yourself, and stand out from the crowd!

Sneak Peek: Fresh New Design & Bottles Set To Hit Stores In The New Year

Sneak Peek: Fresh New Design & Bottles Set To Hit Stores In The New Year

New Bottle and Label Design Unveiled

Today we are excited to unveiled a new 18oz bottle and label design for Long Island Iced Tea® which is set to launch in the new year.

Philip Thomas, Chief Executive Officer of Long Island Iced Tea®, stated, “As our brand continues to build momentum with retail and distribution partnerships forming across the East Coast and Midwest, now is the perfect time to refresh the look of our labeling and packaging.” 

The new label has a bolder structure with more cleanly designed label features, placing a stronger emphasis on the brand’s premium ingredients such as natural fruit flavoring, and the health benefits of non-GMO and 100% raw cane sugar, which is unique within the RTD tea market. The real fruit photography with naturally made moisture droplets accentuates the authentic and fresh spirit of the Long Island Iced Tea® products. 

Another unique featured added to the new bottle design is the customized bottle cap printed with a refined Long Island Iced Tea® logo along with informative health cues such as “no additives”, “non-GMO” and “low calories” for the diet options, further reinforcing the health messages.

Mr. Thomas added, “In addition to the ‘better for you’ message, we wanted the label to immediately evoke thoughts of our core concept – a premium and refreshing beverage – while at the same time subtly incorporate our brand elements such as white weatherboards, which are synonymous to the beach and coastal areas on Long Island.” The premium look of the new packaging contemporizes the Long Island Iced Tea® brand whilst celebrating heritage and cultural associations to it. 

The introduction of the new bottle will see the package size change from a 20oz bottle size to a 18oz bottle size, with the sleek and slimmer design being more compact, making it easier for customers to carry and consume.  The new bottles are expected to reach retail stores in early 2017.

Mr. Thomas concluded, “While our new bottle and refreshed designs will begin to roll out across stores at the start of 2017, what will not change is the same great taste of Long Island Iced Tea® that our valued customers know and love.”

Long Island Iced Tea® is a RTD tea available in both single-serving and gallon bottle sizes, with flavors including Lemon, Peach, Raspberry, Mango, Guava, Southern Sweet Tea, Green Tea & Honey, Half Tea & Half Lemonade, Diet Lemon and Diet Peach.
