Almost Tea collaborates with a small-batch chocolatier, baker, or confectioner in the United States each month to create a new selection of never-before-seen tea blends. Almost Tea collaborates with the original dessert producer to create a unique blend that has been evaluated and authorised to taste exactly like the dessert inspiration. Brown Butter Bourbon Blitz, Cinnamon Toast Munch, Chai Caramel Latte, Spiked Apple Cider, Double Chocolate Chunk, and Raspberry Caramel Fudge are among the teas created in collaboration with Brownie Points in Columbus, Ohio. This initial package has two black teas, two rooibos teas, one honeybush tea, and one pu'erh tea, all of which are calorie-free, gluten-free, and include no added sugar or artificial sweeteners.
Beginning in January 2023, Almost Tea will release a new batch of six teas every month in collaboration with a different small-batch dessert producer in the United States. The overall purpose of Almost Tea is to create tea that is as enjoyable to drink as a delicious dessert. "We focus on collaborating with bakers, chocolatiers, ice cream shops, and donut manufacturers that are open to innovation and are entrepreneurs themselves," said Monique Zauner, co-founder of Almost Tea. "We work with the partner to choose the things they would want to see utilised as tea inspiration, and then we have samples sent to our tea blender to taste as she goes through her process." The original dessert maker is then sent samples, and
What type of consumer feedback has Almost Tea received? "There's been a lot of positive comments on the sweetness," Zauner added. "I believe that because all of the teas are influenced by desserts, consumers anticipate them to be sweet." They're not tasty. This is tea. "I think a lot of folks are pleasantly surprised that we were able to capture the flavour of the dessert on the tea leaf without adding overpowering sweetness." Almost Tea's eight-year adventure began with Zauner's first business, Universal Yums, an international snack box subscription she founded with her husband, Eli. That company has made more than $100 million in lifetime sales, and they intend to use that knowledge to Almost Tea.
As a result, we've created a cinnamon drink that also has the advantages of green tea. For the uninitiated, green tea is also said to be beneficial to diabetics. Drinking caffeinated green tea may help lessen your risk of type 2 diabetes, according to a research published in the Annals of Internal Medicine. Let us now look at the recipe.

Zauner wanted to prevent mindlessly munching on the company's snacks and candies while working on Universal Yums, so she started sipping herbal tea as a post-lunch routine approximately five years ago. "By the 34th cup of chamomile tea, I was wondering... why can't I try other fascinating teas?" "I've tried haggis potato chips and violet blossom dark chocolate," Zaunder added, "but tea has been disregarded as a category." My objective is to create tea that is both intriguing and enjoyable as an alternative to dessert." While Zauner's Almost Tea venture is new to the tea industry, she learned to love and appreciate tea while studying abroad in Shanghai, China, for a semester.
So far, the most difficult problem for the Almost Tea company has been selecting where to spend its resources. "That's true of every startup firm when resources are limited and there's a lot to accomplish," Zauner explained. "Certainly, the attention we've had from our present client base at Universal Yums has been our most significant success." It's been really satisfying to hear from consumers who say things like, 'I don't drink tea, but I know whatever product you create is amazing, so I had to try this.' That is my main metric as a product creator, and I want to instil that trust in every new consumer I encounter with Almost Tea."
