Specialist teas

Tea Markets, a UAE supplier of specialist teas, is marketing a new range of products in the UAE.

Tea Markets, a UAE supplier of specialist teas, is marketing a new range of products in the UAE. The company is distributing four separate assortments of tea from Bigelow, a US tea blender and packer, as well as Tea Forte, a highend tea brand suitable for gifting.

Vahe Tuysuzian, managing partner of Tea Markets hopes to see the brand available in the country’s main supermarket groups in the next few months. The tea is available in four variety packs which include green tea and herbal teas. “The three most selling varieties in Bigelow is the green teas thanks to Lipton’s encouragement and public awareness campaign,” Tuysuzian said. He added that Bigelow’s ‘Constant Comment’ flavour which is flavoured with orange rind and spice is also performing well. The herbal teas are also gaining in popularity, partly because they are caffeine free. “Decafeinated teas are being appreciated as you can drink them before going to bed without causing any sleeping disorders,” Tuysuzian said. Tea Markets is also marketing its premier ‘Tea Forte’ range in the UAE. The brand is available in Harvey Nichols, Paris Gallery in Dubai, and Tarvola across the Gulf, although the product will not be made available in supermarkets.

Thank you for the coverage and introduction. However, my company name is Tea Markets not Tea specialities. Bigelow has more than 65 varieties as you can see on the 4 variety packs which were submited for photo capture. the brand is available in few supermarkets however we expect to have wider coverage if we can overcome the prohibitive listing fees which keep new and high quality products entering the market. Anyway thanks for the coverage.
