PeKANT Tea Company

Food & Beverage

Founded by three Long Island natives, PeKANT Tea produces a one of a kind chili infused bottled tea. Our product features organic tea, lightly sweetened with real fruit, and subtly infused with chili heat. 'Lightly sweet with a little heat'. Our goal was to create a health and wellness alternative to the RTD market, while also offering something different in a flavor profile. This innovative combination appeals to many consumers looking for clean label products with a little personality. We are currently available in 50 stores locally, and excited to grow our brand.
