Langers and Blue Zones Launch New Line of Teas Nationwide
Blue Zones and Langers have teamed up to launch a new line of pre-bottled, unsweetened teas inspired by the essence and ingredients of the blue zones longevity hotspots.
The second-generation, family-owned juice company has long aligned with Blue Zones’ values and roots in the lifestyle habits of the world’s healthiest, longest-living people–including moving naturally, knowing one’s purpose, eating plenty of fruits and vegetables, and drinking tea. Now, in celebration of these unique and extraordinary cultures, the brand has partnered with Blue Zones to release two new 128-ounce bottled teas–a Green & Jasmine Tea and a Bergamot Black Tea–infused with nourishing ingredients traditionally enjoyed in the Ikarian and Okinawan blue zones.
Each tea embodies longevity and vitality, with zero added sugars or sweeteners, and invites everyone to explore and indulge in the flavors and culinary secrets of the original blue zones regions.
The Green & Jasmine Tea is inspired by Okinawa, Japan. Once called the Land of Immortals, Okinawans have traditionally enjoyed an anti-inflammatory green tea with jasmine flowers and turmeric known as “shan-pien,” meaning “tea with a bit of scent.” This antioxidant infusion, mixed with vitamin-rich real fruit juices (pineapple, mango, and dragon fruit), is designed to give smooth energy and mood-boosting restoration.
The Bergamot Black Tea is inspired by Ikaria, Greece. It is made from ancient ingredients such as Bergamot, a fragrant citrus fruit that grows throughout Ikaria. There, strong family values and the commonplace habit of drinking teas steeped in herbs factored into the population’s extraordinary longevity. This specific Bergamot antioxidant-rich blend is combined with the juices of stone fruits, watermelon, and strawberry, and designed to restore and renew.
“Langers Juice is a family brand and it’s always been about just that: family and juice. For as long as I can remember, my siblings and I were tasting fruits and juice blends. Our purpose could always be found in seeking nutritious and healthy foods. At Langers, we believe in crafting more than just juices; we’re cultivating a legacy. It’s a journey through flavors and traditions that extends beyond pure fruit juices; it’s a commitment to moving naturally, knowing our purpose, savoring fruits, and sipping tea. Our beverages mirror the vitality of the centenarians from the blue zones, a sip of life’s most precious moments from nature’s best gifts,” said Bruce Langer, president of Langers.
