Snapchill™ Hot Brewed Tea –

Tea’s enticing aroma dissipates so quickly after it is brewed that it prevents ready-to-drink (RTD) manufacturers from capturing one of the beverage’s most desirable characteristics. Oxidation then takes its toll, reducing shelf life and altering the tea’s flavor within the can.

Kyle Bosshardt, director of business development, joins us today to explain why Snapchill, a Massachusetts-based technology and bottling company, is venturing into tea. Snapchill’s patented innovative heat-exchange method produces canned teas that capture hot-brewed tea's delicate aroma and full flavor. Teas are rapidly cooled to 38 degrees Fahrenheit (about 4 degrees census) without dilution and then nitrogen-flushed to purge oxygen. As Bosshardt explains, the key is to chill the tea rapidly during the brewing process (it takes about a minute), ensuring it retains its flavor and on-shelf stability.
