Family-owned Milo’s Tea Co. has introduced four new USDA Certified Café Style Organic Teas in the refrigerated section of stores across the country. Packaged in 59-oz. carafes, Milo’s Café Style Organic Teas are 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, 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 new Café Style Organic Teas, available in Sweet, Light Sweet, Green Citrus and Light Green Citrus flavors, contain no preservatives or additives. Green Citrus and Light Green Citrus Teas are the company’s first green tea offerings. Both light teas contain 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 USDA organic regulations.
Milo’s Tea Co. is a certified woman-owned business located in Bessemer, Alabama. Milo’s was founded as a restaurant in 1946 by Milo and Bea Carlton after Milo returned from World War II. Milo’s began selling its Famous Sweet Tea to local Birmingham grocery stores in 1989. Now, Milo’s beverages can be found in retail stores across the U.S.
