    Product idea for Dsade


    Over the past couple months I've been drinking quite a bit of green tea, mainly for its stimulating effects. I find it to provide a much cleaner stimulant effect than coffee, and when making it into an iced tea its much more refreshing. Even more recently I found a product made by lipton which I absolutely love.

    I'm sure most of you have seen those little crystal light singles...well lipton makes a green tea version (calorie free). It comes in several flavors: cherry, peach, citrus...even a blueberry one which was just awesome. Its extremely convenient to throw a few of the packets into my bookbag and when I need a little boost I just throw it into my water bottle and have quality instant green tea. The flavor is mild, but quite good if you like tea.

    Anyway, what I'm trying to get at is that I think that this type of product would make an awesome addition to your RPN product line. Take a high quality green tea powder and sell it in bulk with a scooper, or possibly make the individual packets as lipton/crystal light does. Since NP already has flavor systems, I'm assuming that it would be fairly easy to add some flavor/artifical sweetener to the tea.

    Its just a suggestion, but I really hope that you consider this type of product...I think it would sell very well if done correctly.

    I asked for a green tea (not egcg extract) powder some time ago and D said he was getting one in. I wonder if this is still in the works... Please say yes!

    I have something you might like....something better. My contact in China will be back with price and lead time in about 3 weeks.

    I can't spill it, as I have already spoken breifly to individuals with ties to Costco and Trader Joe's regarding the idea and they are interested.

    It is a little different than the idea you are putting out here, but it will be big too. As for the tea powder, thanks for reminding me. I can probably have some right quick now.

    hey quigs, if you like the stimulant effects from green tea, you should try yerba mate. i find it much more favorable than green tea in this sense.

    Sounds good, I'm going to pick some up this week. Personally, as far as green tea goes, I am really fond of the forms which are a ground powder that can be mixed directly (where you drink the whole leaf). I've found these to be more effective than those in which you "extract" the actives out of a tea bag...or in your case a coffee filter. Thanks again for the suggestion!

    I mixed RK with Kroger's instant green tea powder and a little bit of spleda (I don't like my tea too sweet) the other day, and it tastes delicious.

    Perhaps a more potent green tea for a thermogenic/fatloss shot. No sense in capping something if it tastes good.

    That would actually be a great idea ! What would the dose and ECGC extract percent be with a green tea candy ?

    It would probably be a maximum of 50mg or so per piece.

    Yeah, there really is something to that yerba mate. I can't figure it out.. everything I've read suggested the so-called mateine is nothing more than caffeine, and yet yerba mate does not feel the same as coffee or tea. I've got a lot of experience with stims and Yerba Mate really does something different.
