The newest flavors from the Republic of Tea will please lovers of iced tea and wine alike. Taking inspiration from Chardonnay, Rosé and Cabernet, the brand introduced three new herbal iced tea flavors that are prepared using wine grape skils from Northern California's Sonoma wine region.

Each of these new drinks is free of alcohol, calories and caffeine, but boasts the antioxidant benefits of herbal tea, plus the indulgent taste of wine. Stored in steel tins, these iced tea mixes can be safely stored for about two years.

In addition to wine-inspired iced tea, alcoholic milkshakes and spirits that take cures from other cocktails and beer are making crossover drinks more popular choices among consumers. These hybrid drinks are encouraging the adventurous to get into new taste experiences and experimentation at home and at the bar.
