Traditionally, consumers buy beverages with a main focus on their taste, price, and convenience.
However, as consumption knowledge advances, consumers are paying more attention to the beneficial health value of their ready-to-drink beverages, particularly as it concerns the use of all-natural ingredients, nutritional value and artificial sweeteners.
In this vein, more consumers have started to turn to beverage options like Ice Tea to stay hydrated and provide valuable vitamins required by the body. Chivita Ice Tea contains antioxidants. Antioxidants have been known to fight free radicals in the body, reduce stress and aid mental rejuvenation. However, in order to maximize the benefits of ice tea, it is advised to opt for trusted brands that are made from natural tea extracts without any added preservatives. As such, a cross section of consumers interviewed have expressed their preference for the tea. The brand has continued to appeal to consumers with its unique intrinsic product benefits of all-natural ingredients, source of Vitamin C, and its superior taste with no artificial sweeteners.
