Red Tea- a new addition to QSR drinks - BlueTea Blogs of 2018

Fast food outlets and kiosks at multiplexes, theatres, and airports keep introducing new and unique flavours to their drinks menu. However, most of them are syrup or soda-based and taste sugary. Though refreshing for the moment, it does not linger on the taste buds for long. Also, from a business point of view, these artificial mixers become quite a hefty investment for the QSR outlets. To bring a comprehensive solution for both customers and QSRs, Blue Tea India introduces a complete range of exotic teas which can be used as a healthy alternative to syrups and mixers.

Red Tea is a fine blend of organic Egyptian hibiscus flowers and handpicked spices from Kerala. As unique as this tea is in taste and aroma, the natural herbs make a healthy concoction. So when you mix it with fruit juice base, it adds colour and flavour to the most ordinary drinks on your QSR menu. The tart taste of the hibiscus enhances the sweetness of the fruits, while the underlying spicy notes elevate the aroma of your QSR drink. Above all, the bright red colour of the tea adds to the visual appeal.

Investment wise, these teas make for a profitable deal. With each cup of red tea costing Rs 5, and the fruit juice for an average of Rs 15, each serving of your QSR drink would not cost more than Rs 25, which is way below your standard margins.
