Tea is one of the most underdeveloped beverages in the United States. The potential is enormous, as tea barely compares in market size to beverage categories such as carbonated soft drinks, coffee and water. Moreover, numerous variables are in place to help drive the growth of tea sales.
Tea fits into the well-established movement among aging baby boomers to seek out foods and beverages that promise wellness and anti-aging effects. These aging boomers are not the major market for RTD iced tea beverages like Snapple, which targets college students and recent grads, nor are they the prime buyers of established tea bag and instant tea brands such as Lipton, which skew toward seniors. Boomers are the drivers of specialty teas, in every way, shape and form.
Furthermore, what makes tea uniquely positioned in the functional beverage category is that tea is inherently healthful. Its not some sweetened, water-based drink loaded with fortifying ingredients. Tea is a nutritional powerhouse all on its own.
