Syrups specialist Monin has bolstered its portfolio with a Green Tea Concentrate, developed for use in cocktails, iced teas and other non-alcoholic drinks.
The new addition “encapsulates the unique fresh essence of the popular Asain tea”, and has been designed to help bartenders and baristas create an “exciting” and “different” array of green tea drinks.
It is said to pair perfectly with passion fruit, pomegranate, mango, lemon and honey, as well as on-trend botanical flavours such as jasmin and hibiscus.
Monin’s Green Tea Concentrate is free from artificial flavourings and colourings, is suitable for vegans and is allergen free. The product has an ambient shelf life of up to three months after opening and up to 18 months unopened.
Lee Hyde, beverage innovation manager, Monin UK, said: “The newest addition to the Monin portfolio reflects the brand’s commitment to bringing to market the latest flavour innovation.
“Originally added to menus as a healthier alternative to black tea and coffee, Green Tea continues to help drive sales for many outlets due to its refreshing and slightly astringent taste.
“Monin’s Green Tea Concentrate offers an authentic flavour, while its concentrated strength means a reduced cost per serve.
“Establishments can enhance their iced tea menus by adding Monin Green Tea Concentrate, thereby offering a different take on a classic.”
