Tea Company First to Use Gizmo Bottle Cap


Tea of a Kind is the first beverage company to use a patented method for delivering preservative-free ingredients upon opening. The Gizmo Closure and Delivery System infuses a drink with a pressurized stream that enhances flavor and health benefits.

The all natural flavors, real brewed tea, and powerful antioxidants are tucked safely away in the pressurized nitrogen chamber cap, keeping them fresh without the use of chemical preservatives. The chamber defends them against UV light, oxidation and other damaging conditions that degrade nutrients in most pre-mixed beverages. Once the cap is twisted, the ingredients burst into the bottle and self-mix, creating a color change and a visual confirmation that the drink is fresh and ready to consume.

The company launched 16 oz. bottles in three flavors: Peach Ginger Black Tea, Citrus Mint Green Tea, and Pomegranate Acai White Tea. All are natural low in calories and loaded with antioxidants. A case of 12 sells for $29.95.

Tea of Kind marks the first application of the Gizmo technology by Gizmo Beverages, run by the duo of Founder & CEO, Don Park, and Co-Founder & President, Walter Apodaca. It was Park who discovered the first incarnation of the Gizmo. Brainstorming off the simple idea that he could use it to mix fresh lime juice into beer, he immediately recognized the potential of the design in the beverage industry. Park appointed Walter Apodaca as President in 2010, drawing on his expertise from a 20-year career in the beverage industry. Apodaca, who had worked his way up from loading beverage trucks to become an Executive with Coca-Cola Enterprises, Coors Brewing Company and MillerCoors, compares the innovation with the revolutionary impact the aluminum can had on the beverage industry.

"I'm a part of something that transcends technology and our generation," Apodaca explains. "We'll feel proud to have brought great tasting, healthy, all natural, preservative-free options to the market."

Through a commitment to dietary mindfulness, healthy choices, and elimination of chemically processed foods, both men were able to steer their health back on track after years of bad diet. This amplified their commitment to make Tea of a Kind all natural, and also to ensure that any future licensing applications for the Gizmo are in line with the Gizmo Beverages "moral compass".

"The commitment comes from a desire to enrich the next generation, not poison them blindly!" laughs Park. "I know I can give this drink to my kids and feel good about it. That is what keeps me excited," he continues. "It's good for you and it's good for me. That's the goal."
