Milo’s Tea introduces new line of organic teas

DBR Staff Writer Published 23 May 2016

Milo’s has introduced four new USDA certified Café Style Organic Teas in the refrigerated section of stores across the country.

Packaged in 59-ounce carafes, Milo's Café Style Organic Teas are fresh brewed from custom-blended organic tea leaves and sweetened with certified organic cane sugar or a blend of organic cane sugar and organic stevia.

"Our loyal Milo's customers reached out to us," said Milo's Tea CEO Tricia Wallwork, who is also the granddaughter of company founders Milo and Bea Carlton. "They called, emailed, contacted us through social media and communicated to their local grocery stores that they wanted the same great Milo's Tea flavor using organic ingredients and also green teas. So that's what we have created."

The newly introduced Café Style Organic Teas - Sweet, Light Sweet, Green Citrus and Light Green Citrus flavors - are fresh brewed from custom-blended organic traditional and green tea leaves, containing no preservatives or additives.

Milo's Café Style new Sweet and Light Sweet Teas are the organic complement to Milo's Famous Sweet Tea that Founders, Milo and Bea began brewing and selling 70 years ago. Green Citrus and Light Green Citrus Teas are the company's first green tea offerings. Both light teas are only 35 calories per cup.

"Organic and green teas were a natural next step for Milo's," said Wallwork. "Our teas have always been free of preservatives, acids, additives, and GMOs, so creating a new organic product that our customers want was easy."

The USDA National Organic Program has verified that the ingredients and the brewing and bottling processes all comply with the U.S. Department of Agriculture organic regulations. Milo's Café Style Organic and Famous Teas are refrigerated, fresh brewed and free of preservatives.
