Promasidor Launches Lemon-Lime, Ginger Flavoured Tea


Promasidor Nigeria Limited, makers of Top Tea, has launched two new variants of the tea (lemon-lime and ginger flavours) into the Nigerian tea market in a bid to add fun and excitement to tea drinking in the country.

The company has also launched square and tag tea bags into the market in response to the demand of its consumers, one option with tags only and the other with tags and envelopes. The tags are expected to provide consumers more convenience.

Mr. Onyekachi Onubogu, marketing director of the company said in Lagos recently that the company was “offering consumer choice, in terms of what they are currently used to, that is the black tea in terms of format and presentation, as well as adding two additional new flavours.”

He added that the new flavours would provide an opportunity for health to meet taste.

Top Tea was launched in 1998, with four key sku, x26bp, x26pp, x100pp and, x500pp. The company offered at that time, round bags, with the added advantage of better infusion.
