All About Teas

All About Teas

It seems like tea can be made from just about anything! That’s what makes it so great, the huge variety of tea that exists! Not just the extra flavorings such as ginger, lemon, or hibiscus but in actual tea as well. The differences are so subtle so its very interesting to learn that actually they are very different! So we have made a little fact filled blog post to give you a brief overview of all the wonderful teas in this world.  Get ready to be a tea aficionado!

Black Tea:  Black teas are allowed to oxidize and ferment resulting in dark leaves that have a full robust flavor! It also has a high caffeine content, in comparison to other teas. 

White Tea: Only the youngest shoots of the tea plant are used which result in the most delicate, subtle and complex teas.  They are not oxidized or fermented.  When they are brewed properly, at a low temperature and a short steeping time, they result in a very low caffeine level.  

Green Tea:  The oxidation process is stopped very quickly when the leaves are heated.  When brewed at lower temperatures green teas has a lower caffeine content than black teas.  Green teas are admired for their subtleties and variety of undertones.   

Yellow Tea: This type of tea is very similar to green tea except the leaves go through an extra step of production where the damp leaves are “sweltered,” meaning closed in a container, for six to eight hours.  

Matcha: This is a powdered green tea that is originally from Japan.  The leaves are grown in the shade for three weeks before they are plucked.  This results in a higher level of chlorophyll, which creates the bright green color.  It has more caffeine than regular green tea because it contains the whole tealeaf.  

Oolong Tea: This tea undergoes a partial oxidation.  Oolong is less robust than black tea and is often compared to fresh flowers or fruit!  The caffeine content falls between black and green tea.  

Dark Tea: This tea is from theHunan and Sichuan provinces of China and is an aged probiotic tea.  This aging process allows the tea to go through a second fermentation process. After it steeps it has a sweet smooth flavor.  

Puer: This is a subset of Dark Tea, so it is also an aged tea from China. Until 1995 it was illegal to import into the US and the process to produce is still kept secret!  It is very strong, with a rich deep flavor but no bitterness.

So now that you are a tea expert, the next time you take a sip of a delicious Long Island Iced Tea you can impress your friends with your tea knowledge!

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!

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.
