As the largest foodservice iced tea supplier in the U.S., S&D is on the cutting edge of delivering fresh brewed taste prepared from choice tea leaves. With the popularity of tea at an all-time high in the U.S. market, our team is hard at work sourcing directly from farms around the world and perfecting blends especially for iced tea.
Trust the Experts
We apply our 60 years of tea experience to create outstanding fresh brewed iced tea. Through relationships in origin countries like China, Argentina and Indonesia, we buy and control every tea component directly for exceptional consistency and quality. Our own director of tea procurement selects and blends leaves specifically for iced tea. And our 3 expert cuppers and advanced equipment ensure each cup is top-notch.
Profit and Value
Backed by this expertise, S&D makes it easy for you to provide high quality teas with great value. In 2012, World Tea Media recognized S&D with 1st place and Best Value awards in the foodservice category of the 2012 Iced Tea Class. And since fresh brewed iced tea is one of the highest margin products you can offer, selling iced tea is a great way to increase your profits.
Patented Brew Systems
If you brew both iced tea and coffee, we can help ensure quality and flavor with our patented square brew baskets and corresponding square tea bags. The unique shape makes it easy to tell the difference between coffee and tea and ensures proper contact time for full extraction of delicious tea. The basket helps prevent cross-contamination with the coffee maker and “off” batches where the color or flavoring is wrong. You always get good tea.
Tea is perceived as a healthy beverage, and for good reason. Tea contains vital flavonoids, which are linked to improved heart, gastrointestinal, bone and oral health. In fact, tea has one of the highest contents of flavonoids among common food and beverage products.
Our iced teas contain 115 mg of flavonoids per 8 oz. serving. And since tea contains no sodium, fat or carbonation, it’s an excellent alternative to other beverages on the market. As consumers become more health conscious and recognize tea’s natural goodness, offering this healthy alternative will benefit your business.
