Tetley hopes this summer’s predicted heatwave will boost sales of its new Green & Grapefruit iced tea.
The flavour joins the T of Life range. It contains 4% fruit juice, spring water and has a lower sugar content than other T of Life products and is designed to appeal to the health-conscious.
There are now five flavours in the range, which includes another green tea variant, Green Tea & Apple.
Dorothy Sieber, Tetley’s commercial manager for ready-to-drink teas, said: “T of Life has been formulated specially for the UK palate. Unlike others it is not a European blend. We are offering a fruity, refreshing drink, not cold black tea with lemon.”
A 500ml bottle of Green & Grapefruit has an rsp of 99p. It goes on sale in convenience stores this month.
