Coconutea is launching a range of six drinks to the coconut water category after it identified a gap in the UK market for premium offering. A “superfood in a bottle”, it combines the magic of pure coconut water and green tea, celebrating the king coconut grown in Sri Lanka.
With a 35 per cent growth in the coconut water category predicted by 2026 according to Mintel, Coconutea is on trend with its exceptionally health benefits and strong focus on sustainability.
The distributor and brand owner, Vivo Tea Company, is launching the brand into the UK market this month and will be targeting a range of formats including multiple retail, independent luxury retail, farm shops and delicatessen and the hospitality and food service sectors.
It is available in a range of six flavours – lemon, peach, pineapple, passionfruit, strawberry and soursop. The RRP per bottle is £3.49.
“Coconutea is an exciting opportunity for the UK healthy fruit juice sector, adding so much value to the drinks range than a standard coconut water,” said Sanjiv Rai, founder and director of Coconutea.
“King coconut – The jewel of Sri Lanka – is the unique ingredient that not just makes Coconutea supremely refreshing, it also contains an unprecedented combination of naturally occurring minerals and vitamins.
“We’ve created a health drink that not only tastes great, but lifts mind, body and soul.”
Coconutea is unique combination of premium green tea, natural fruit flavours and nutrient packed water from the majestic king coconut. It is organic by virtue, and although tasting sweeter has 35 per cent less fructose sugar than green coconuts. The green tea is freshly picked straight from sustainable bushes from Soil Association approved estates.
Nutritionally Coconutea contains double the amount of magnesium compared to green coconuts. It is a rich source of B-complex vitamins, sodium, potassium and other essential electrolytes making it ideal as a rehydration drink.
The king coconut is native to Sri Lanka and known in the local dialect as Thembili. It is highly prized by Sri Lankans and used in traditional Ayurvedic practices.
