Traditional Medicinals Launches New Line of Herbal TeasVitality Magazine February 1, 2014
Three out of four Canadians are now using natural remedies to maintain and promote good health, according to a recent study by the Canadian Health Food Association. Responding to this growing trend, Traditional Medicinals, Canada’s leading medicinal tea brand, is expanding its best-selling line of natural health products and making it easier for consumers to find solutions to common health complaints.
The new products accompany the brand’s first packaging update in nearly a decade, to increase awareness of the healing benefits of plants and entice curiousity. Traditional Medicinals is experiencing double-digit growth in Canada, where more than 60% of consumers are weekly tea drinkers according to the Tea Assn. of Canada, and expects the rebranding effort to help expand the currently underdeveloped medicinal tea category by making its products more approachable.
“More North Americans are realizing that natural herbal remedies such as medicinal tea and herbal supplements can be just as powerful as their synthetic counterparts,” said Blair Kellison, chief executive officer of Traditional Medicinals. “As a company with a long history of creating trusted herbal formulas, our aim is to revamp medicine cabinets across the country by making it simple for consumers to find high-quality, natural products that provide safe and effective relief from common conditions.
New Teas Address Common Health Concerns
Traditional Medicinals’ new teas are intended to address Canadians’ most common health complaints, which according to the Canadian Digestive Health Foundation and Journal of Psychiatry include digestive upset and sleeplessness. Organic Nighty Night® Valerian, which builds on the popularity of best-selling Organic Nighty Night®, is traditionally used as a nighttime sleep aid that helps with nervousness. Also joining the line-up are Organic Lemon Balm, used as a sleep aid and calmative, as well as Organic Fennel, which helps relieve common digestive disturbances.
Refreshing New Hibiscus Tea
For everyday enjoyment, Traditional Medicinals is introducing Organic Hibiscus, a blend of hibiscus, lemongrass and blackberry leaf that has a tangy, mildly fruity and lemony taste.
The company’s comprehensive line of 36 teas produced in Canada has undergone a significant packaging overhaul. The rebranding segments the teas into nine wellness categories – detox, digestive, green, herbal, laxative, relaxation, seasonal, tonic and women’s. This makes it easier for consumers to identify products based on their health needs.
The four new teas are available now in grocery, drug and natural food stores across Canada for the suggested retail price of $4.99 – $6.99 per 20-count box.
Traditional Medicinals, the No. 1 seller of medicinal tea in Canada, is passionate about connecting people with plants and passing along centuries-old wisdom of how to use them. Its best-selling natural health product teas, which adhere to strict licensing requirements regarding quality, safety, efficacy and labeling, are formulated by herbalists using medicinal grade, Non-GMO Project Verified herbs sourced from their native regions around the world. This is one of the defining qualities that set Traditional Medicinals apart from many leading tea brands.
