Rooibee in major rebranding effort

September 2016

Getting a due facelift

Ready-to-drink rooibos tea manufacturer Rooibee Red Tea announced a major branding revamp that includes a redesigned website, reworked packaging and a tweaked logo. The packaging design and website have adopted minimalist cues with a white background and colorful images of fruits taking center stage. The company also switched from a 12oz to 16oz bottle, bringing the design and bottle shape surprisingly close to those used by competitors Honest Tea and VitaminWater. Rooibee is seeking to realign the brand after a transitional period that saw the departure of longtime CEO Heather Howell and a short-lived stint by Bryon Evans. Accompanying the announcement, new CEO David Salmon shared plans for an aggressive national expansion in the premium grocery and convenience channels.

Teavana launches major Asian offensive in 6,200 Starbucks stores

September 2016

Pivot towards the east

Starbucks announced a major pivot towards Asia by introducing Teavana tea beverages in 6,200 stores across the Asia-Pacific region. The coffee behemoth hopes this will lift global tea sales to $3 billion over the next five years despite having to challenge an entrenched tea culture in many of those countries, including China, India and Japan. A number of tea drinks were created especially for the Asian market, including black tea with ruby grapefruit and honey and iced shaken green tea with aloe, as well as matcha-based beverages. A range of 9 tea varieties in pyramid bags will complement the drinks line. Teavana teas aim to offer a modern tea experience and target Asia's growing middle class of younger, urban consumers open to new flavors and premium products.
