A popular way to enjoy mint is when it’s brewed into a tea and then iced. And, if you are looking to add a sweet, delicious beverage to your product offerings, Clover Farms’ private label Icy Meadow Tea is a great option. It may even have beneficial effects on the health of your customers.
Clover Farms was established in 1937 in the heart of Pennsylvania Dutch dairy country. We are now the largest privately owned dairy company in Pennsylvania and produce a wide range of milk and dairy products, as well as iced tea, fruit juices, and fruit drinks.
We have also been a trusted private label supplier of milk, iced tea, fruit juices, fruit drinks, and other products to a select group of nationally recognized customers for many years. For many of them, our private label beverages are best sellers!
What is Private Labeling?
Unlike co-packing, which refers to the contract packaging of products using a client’s proprietary formula(s), private labeling means that products are manufactured by one company (e.g., Clover Farms) using its own formula(s) and sold under another company’s private label/brand.
If you don’t have the in-house equipment, employees, or expertise to develop, manufacture, package and distribute your own proprietary iced tea recipes, private label products from Clover Farms are the ideal alternative. In some cases, we can create a unique formula for your brand or adjust our current formula to meet your needs.
With private labeling, clients have the opportunity to create an image for their brand. Whether bolstering an existing brand identity or creating a new one, private labeled products can be a phenomenal way for brands to increase margins and capture added revenue.
What is “Meadow” Tea?
“Meadow” tea is not actually tea but is a unique drink that is traditionally brewed with a type of mint that grows wild in meadows throughout Pennsylvania. It’s especially popular in Lancaster County, where the Amish and Mennonite collect fresh mint from the meadow (typically spearmint), steep it for hours, sweeten it to taste, and serve it over ice.
Icy Meadow Tea is one of Clover Farms’ newest Icy Tea flavors. It’s all-natural, has no caffeine, and is an oh-so-refreshing drink at any time of the year.
Nutritious Mint Tea
Spearmint, or Mentha spicata, is a type of mint that is similar to peppermint. The aromatic herb is named for its characteristic spear-shaped leaves.
Spearmint is rich in vitamin A and vitamin C and contains important minerals, such as calcium, potassium and magnesium. In folk medicine, spearmint tea has been used for:
- Relief of nausea, cold symptoms, gastrointestinal distress, headaches and indigestion;
- Relief of stress and to promote relaxation;
- Helping the immune system fight some types of harmful bacteria, such as foodborne E. coli and Listeria;
- Relief of stiffness caused by arthritis and joint pains;
- Reducing acne and dark spots on skin.
Whether you drink it for its aroma, health benefits, or simply the refreshing, lightly sweet taste, Icy Meadow Tea is destined to become your favorite beverage on a hot summer day!
