Are you looking to enhance the aromatics of your ready-to-drink (RTD) tea? Customers can set themselves apart from the competition by delivering real tea top-notes in their RTD products with Martin Bauer’s new line of water-based tea essences. Made from premium-quality green and black tea leaves, these essences provide an additional boost of tea taste and aroma for a rounder, fuller, better-tasting tea. Black tea extracts are available in a range of brew colors, including a dark extract that is an ideal substitute for caramel color and a great way to make an ingredient line shorter and cleaner.

Its line of all-natural green and black tea extracts deliver authentic tea taste and bring a fuller-bodied tea flavor to both dry mixes and RTD teas. Looking to boost the caffeine content in your tea? Many of Martin Bauer’s tea extracts are standardized, including a green tea extract at 40 percent caffeine.

Botanical extracts

Martin Bauer’s portfolio of botanical extracts includes more than 150 products, from artichoke to valerian. Botanical extracts are versatile and all-natural and deliver a range of exciting tastes and opportunities for innovation. Green coffee extract, guaraná, yerba maté and cola nut are ideal for energy drinks and can provide a caffeine boost to juices and teas. Refreshing hibiscus and relaxing chamomile make for great caffeine-free and all-natural alternatives to more generic, artificially flavored fruit drinks.
