A new product from a New York-based startup that’s been hailed as a ‘milk tea for the future’ is about to go on sale.
The company, Milk Tea, is based in Manhattan and is making its debut on the shelves of supermarkets and grocery stores this week.
It promises a ‘delicious, fresh taste of milk tea’ and promises a range of ‘milky options’.
Its founder, Jessica Hensley, says Milk Tea will make milk tea for ‘the future’.
She’s got some experience in the food industry too, working with the brand Foodstuffs.
She’s the first to admit she’s not a drinker.
‘I don’t like caffeine, and I don’t drink it,’ she says.
‘It’s been my life.
My mother was very strict about the amount I could drink, and so we just drank a lot of water and milk.
‘There’s no such thing as a perfect cup of tea.
‘But the Milk Tea brand is just that: a milk tea brand that’s based on real milk and is 100 per cent real milk.’
‘It doesn’t have sugar or anything like that.
It’s 100 per cwt.’
‘You can’t just take out milk and make a tea.
It has to be real milk, it has to have the same texture as milk.’
It’s a concept that sounds familiar to anyone who has ever been stuck in a supermarket checkout line, but Hensler says it’s a completely different experience from the sort of shopping experience that many consumers are used to.
‘You don’t have to go out and buy a box of chocolates, or something like that, because that’s not what we’re doing,’ she said.
‘We’re actually selling a range, which is like a coffee, tea and milk, with a few extra options to choose from, like a fruity and a chocolate and a dark chocolate.’
Milk Tea’s marketing is based on the premise that ‘real milk’ can be made from ‘real, local dairy’ and that milk tea is the ‘next step in milk tea’.
But it also has a brand image to back it up.
‘Milk Tea has been making milk tea since 2013, and we’ve had to grow to meet the demand for it, which has grown over time,’ Hensleys co-founder and chief marketing officer, Ashley McLean, said.
McLean added that Milk Tea had launched a new range of milk products, including a ‘Milky Choice’ line of tea cups, in September and that it would be launching a new product in 2017.
‘At Milk Tea we take great pride in our product,’ she told The Sport in an email.
‘As the brand we are, we do everything we can to deliver the highest quality product that we can.’
It comes with a list of claims, including that milk ‘makes the best cup of coffee’.
It also claims that ‘Milking and drinking milk is the best way to get your body to produce milk’.
It’s not the first milk tea company to make milk.
There are several similar brands that have popped up in recent years.
But this one has a slightly different twist.
‘In order to make our tea as natural as possible, we have developed our proprietary blend of 100% pure and organic cow’s milk,’ McLean told The Sydney Morning Herald.
‘Our process is based around the use of traditional techniques of cow milk fermentation and the use a proprietary blend which provides the best possible blend of vitamins and minerals.’
The milk in Milk Tea is sourced from ‘an environmentally friendly and sustainable farming process’ and it’s grown locally in the town of Croydon, NSW.
McLeod said the company has been able to grow the business to a level where it’s now profitable.
‘This is the first product that’s actually been made in the US and the first that’s even made locally,’ she added.
‘The milk is actually sourced from an environmentally friendly, sustainable farming method.’
She said Milk Tea ‘is the first dairy-based milk tea that has a milk-like quality’.
‘It has a nice, smooth texture, a good sweetness and a creamy taste.’
‘The best part of milk is that it doesn’t spoil.
So it’s really easy to drink.
It makes a great afternoon tea and if you’re in the mood for a little tea or a sweet, creamy drink, you can’t go wrong with Milk Tea.’
In the US, Milk and Tea was recently listed as one of the top 100 products of 2017 on Amazon.
A spokesperson for Milk Tea told The Australian Financial Review that the milk is grown locally and the company is not affiliated with any dairy farms.
‘All the milk we make is sourced directly from a local farmer, who has been operating a sustainable farm for over 15 years,’ they said.
The spokesperson added that the company’s ‘farmers’ do not work in the milk industry and the milk they
