New Collection of Premium, Organic Teas Promote Digestive Health with Fermented Ingredients and One Billion CFUs of Probiotics Per Serving
LARKSPUR, CALIF. – In January, The Republic of Tea, debuted a specialty tea collection designed to improve gut health and support healthy digestion.* The organic SuperDigest Teas™ encompass four great-tasting blends – Hibiscus Beet Ginger, Honeybush Vanilla Turmeric, Cacao Cinnamon Pu-Erh, and Green Pu-Erh – each of which combine fermented ingredients and premium herbs and teas to maximize the digestive benefits with added probiotics.
Seizing the growing trend of interest in digestive health, with the number of Google searches for “gut health” rising by 669% between 2014 and 2019**, The Republic of Tea is the only tea brand of its caliber to combine premium, fermented ingredients with a stated quantity of probiotics. Uniquely, each tea bag in the SuperDigest Teas collection contains one billion colony forming units (CFUs) of a probiotic called Bacillus subtilis, which is shelf- and heat-stable, tested at 100°C up to 15 minutes.
The SuperDigest Teas include:
- Hibiscus Beet Ginger – The bright, floral-berry flavor of hydrating hibiscus complements the sweet, earthy notes of red beet in this caffeine-free blend. A touch of spicy yet soothing ginger finishes each sip.
- Honeybush Vanilla Turmeric – Honeybush, a native herb from South Africa, has a mildly sweet, honey-like flavor and a wide range of health benefits. It is enhanced with aromatic vanilla bean and finished with a touch of earthy turmeric.
- Cacao Cinnamon Pu-Erh Tea – Cacao from Ecuador has a light chocolate flavor that compliments sweet, spicy cinnamon. Aged, fermented black tea, also known as Pu-erh, adds an earthy finish to this lightly caffeinated cup.
- Green Pu-Erh Tea: This hand-plucked, high-grown, raw Pu-erh from Yunnan, China is fermented through a unique wet piling process. The resulting tea is light, fresh and well-balanced with a clean finish.
“We are delighted to introduce our newest and most innovative line of teas to-date, the organic SuperDigest Teas, in which we have taken cues from our ancestors to incorporate fermented ingredients that augment teas’ digestive benefits and nutrient absorption,” said Kristina Richens Tucker, Minister of Enlightenment and Commerce at The Republic of Tea. “These four blends are as delicious as they are healthful. We encourage Citizens to sip and enjoy them daily as a part of their overall wellness routines.”
Each recyclable and reusable airtight steel tin includes 36 round, gluten-free, unbleached tea bags free of overwraps, tags, strings or staples. The SuperDigest Teas are certified USDA organic, OU Kosher, non-GMO, and vegan. The teas retail for $14.00 per tin and can be purchased online at www.republicoftea.com.
