Iced Tea Season is Here!


Iced Tea Season is Here!

Summer is here and that means it’s time for Iced Tea! We have two fresh new flavors to help you celebrate the return of sunshine and warmer weather.

Red Diamond is pleased to announce the most recent additions to our Flavored Tea offerings: Fuzzy Peach and Mango. Nothing compares with the succulent flavor of a luscious, ripe fuzzy summer Peach, this flavor pairs perfectly with our excellent black tea. Our Mango is also a smooth black tea enhanced by the tropical flavor of this sunny island fruit. Available in fraction packages, our Fuzzy Peach and Mango teas will delight, again and again. Brew and serve over ice for a refreshing and healthy summer beverage.

Red Diamond produces the highest quality iced tea available in the US today. There are three major points of differentiation between Red Diamond and our competitors:

First, we have a relationship that spans three generations with one of the largest tea importers in the country, allowing us to source the finest quality tea from around the world, year after year.

Second, our blend of Orange Pekoe and Pekoe cut black teas provides the highest quality iced tea, with optimum color and flavor. Orange Pekoe and Pekoe refers to the type of tea leaf, not the flavor of tea.

Third, the lack of stem content in our tea produces a better tea flavor with greater yield. Tea leaves include the stem which is made of wood fiber. A lot of our competitors cut up the leaf with the stem to reduce cost. Technically that is tea, but the wood fiber of the stem produces no tea benefit. Red Diamond removes as much stem as possible from our tea blends to provide the finest product at a fair price.

Because of this, Red Diamond consistently delivers pure tea, terrific color, a crisp, clean tea taste, and a greater yield.

Red Diamond is a 108 year-old family-owned coffee, tea and foodservice company providing high quality products to fine hotels, restaurants, offices, institutions and homes across the United States. Visit
