The Canada based premium tea brand has signed a partnership with Ritz Carlton DIFC.
Speaking with Catering News Middle East at Gulfood 2018, Yvonne Robertson, president, Sahara Tea said: “Our speciality is blending natural and wellness ingredients to create a tea that will benefit the body and that is what we are showcasing at Gulfood this year.
“We have five collections and the most popular one is our energising collection which is a caffeine free combination of ingredients that will give you that daily dose of energy,” she added.
Sahara tea products can be used for more than just making tea according to the president.
“Our ingredients are all natural and we have a strong partnership with chefs in North America who also use our products to bake macaroons,” she added.
Commenting on their expansion in the region Robertson said: “We are very excited to be in the GCC. It has been a year in the making that we have developed these relationships and are now partnering with The Ritz Carlton, DIFC. They will be launching a Sahara Tea boutique in the spa offering our entire line of accessories.
“We have also secured a strong relationship with a local distributor, Pearl Tree, who are supporting us to break into this market. We are currently speaking with a number of hotels and within the next 12-18 months we should have a strong standing in premium hotels over here, “she added.
