May 31, 2013

TASSIMO, a single-serve home brewing system, is offering a new seasonal flavor -- Sweet Black Iced Tea. TASSIMO Sweet Black Iced Tea will be available in June in select retail stores and online at the TASSIMO Website. Sweet Black Iced Tea is the newest addition to the TASSIMO Tea Bar line of products and enhances the growing assortment of TASSIMO single-serve beverage options.

"In addition to the wide coffee and espresso offerings in the TASSIMO portfolio, we're thrilled to bring this delicious iced tea to our consumers," said Jennifer Dahlgren, brand manager for Tassimo at Kraft Foods, in a prepared statement. "Sweet Black Iced Tea enhances the robust line of beverages available for enjoyment with a TASSIMO machine. Sweet black tea was crafted to be enjoyed over ice with lemon all summer long!"

The TASSIMO home brewing system offers an extensive variety of specialty beverages, and is the only system to employ bar code technology that measures the exact time, temperature and amount of water necessary to make each beverage delicious and refreshing. For Iced Tea beverages, the tea is "heat extracted" to precisely deliver outstanding flavor when brewed over ice.
