PURCHASE, N.Y., Feb. 6, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Those yearning for an early taste of spring are in for a real-brewed delight. Pure Leaf announced today the launch of Pure Leaf Herbal Iced Teas, a new line of premium iced teas that are caffeine free, have no artificial sweeteners and are brewed with real hibiscus flowers. Leave it to the Pure Leaf tea masters to develop this unique, flavor forward blend that's also trend setting. In fact, hibiscus was recently named 2019 "Flavor of the Year" by flavor experts at Firmenich.
With its vibrant color and petals, the Insta-worthy hibiscus flower has been popping up in fashion, food, beauty and now, bottled iced tea. Hibiscus is in full bloom with Pure Leaf's newest line up that looks as good as it tastes.
Pure Leaf Herbal Iced Teas are already hitting store shelves in three delicious varieties: Mango Hibiscus, Peach Hibiscus and Cherry Hibiscus. Made from real-brewed herbal hibiscus tea, real sugar and natural fruit flavors, Pure Leaf Herbal Iced Teas contain 100-110 calories per serving and add a distinct taste experience to the existing Pure Leaf collection of premium iced teas.
"We're excited to bring real-brewed hibiscus iced tea to all of the places you buy your favorite beverage," said Amy Tran, Pure Leaf Tea Master. "We've listened to feedback from our iced tea lovers, who shared that they love the quality and real-brewed taste that's synonymous with Pure Leaf, but also wanted a naturally caffeine-free option that can be enjoyed anywhere, anytime."
