The idea for Inko’s White Iced Tea was born out of three facts:
There is no premium, white-tea-focused beverage company dedicated to bringing
white tea and white tea only ready-to-drink beverages to people,
There is no better tasting tea on the market (in our humble opinion of course)
There is a lot of early-stage, medical research concerning White Tea.
The backstory is that my wife Cecille had been making gallons of tea for me a
few summers ago. One day, we ran out and, for the first time in my life, I
found myself craving for a drink not out of necessity but from a real desire.
Figuring that leaves to make iced tea can be found anywhere in our Manhattan
neighborhood, I asked: “Where’s my tea woman?” (just kidding).
To make a long story short, Cecille told me that this was a “white” tea she found in
Chinatown and that it was very rare and the store was out of it. After
searching to buy some on the Internet, I stumbled upon white tea’s health
benefits, and the idea to bring this great tea, and my wife’s recipe, to as
many people as possible just took hold.
I believe in white tea. Can it cure cancer? Wow, that would be great. Yet, as
you and I know, there’s big difference between rat assays and testing in humans
and we’re probably a long way away from scientifically determining its healthy effects.
I can promise you this though. You and I will donate a portion of each bottle of
Inko’s sold to white-tea cancer research. All you have to do is buy the drink
(we’ll take care of the donation!).
I hope you enjoy our flavors of Inko’s White Tea. It is really a great tasting
product that we put tremendous effort in bringing to you.
Best to all,
