HEALTHY, DELICIOUS, CONVENIENT TEA
Legend has it that sometime around 2800 B.C. Chinese emperor Shennong discovered tea when leaves from a nearby tree blew into a bowl of hot water. He praised the resulting drink for its pleasant aroma, refreshing taste, and restorative qualities. In the thousands of years since, tea has become a daily beverage for millions of people around the world all drawn to the mental, physical, and social benefits of a fresh brewed cup of tea.
COLD STEEP TECHNOLOGY
When they founded Cusa Tea, we had one goal: create an instant tea that doesn’t taste like an instant tea. They wanted to create something that retains all the flavor and benefits of regular cup of premium organic loose leaf tea, but make it available to you in three seconds. However, the available technology behind existing instant beverage products damages the quality of teas either through over-brewing with too much heat (think overcooked spaghetti) or too aggressive dehydration methodologies requiring extreme cold temperatures. After nine months of new development and trial and error, they discovered our Cold Steep Process. Cold Steep Technology uses room temperature water and pressure to extract all the flavor and maximum goodness from our hand-selected teas. From there, they vacuum dehydrate the cold brew, a much gentler method of dehydration, to concentrate the tea into crystals that instantly dissolve in hot or cold water. The result: a delicious, restorative, enjoyable cup of premium organic tea that can be made in seconds. It’s the next evolution in the thousand-year-old tradition of tea.
Sourced only from the finest organic tea plantations in Asia, Cusa teas are hand selected for their quality, both in cultivation and production. Much of a tea’s character comes from the sun-drying process when it is left out in the open for to oxidize and turn into Green Tea, Black Tea, or Oolong Tea for example. By sourcing from smaller farms in remote valleys away from sources of pollution like busy roads and other development, they can reduce exposure to pollution and heavy metals that can contaminate other teas. After drying, they select the finest leaves for our Cold Steep process. Like cold brewing, Cold Steeping allows us to “brew” the tea over 8 hours and extract all the goodness from the leaves without destroying anything with high heat or extreme cold technologies like most other “instant” teas you may have tried.
