Layn Natural Ingredients, one of the world’s largest vertically-integrated manufacturers and innovators of natural, functional botanical extract ingredients and solutions has extended its deep portfolio of tea extracts with its Instant Tea Extract Powder line.

The tea extract powders are produced using a simple water extraction method which helps to retain both the flavor and functionality found in the tea leaves and are hot and cold water soluble making them ideal for instant tea and ready-to-drink products. Layn’s tea extracts are sustainably produced and fully traceable through Layn’s secure and reliable supply chain.

We have seen growing interest from beverage brands wishing to incorporate instant tea extracts both for the functional health benefits and for tea flavors,” said Collette Kakuk, VP of Global Marketing at Layn Natural Ingredients. “Our tea extract powders have excellent liquid solubility as well as pleasant taste, making them ideal for use in a variety of applications including hot and cold beverages, liquid shots, gummies, bars, and instant tea packs.”
