Oklahoma City, OK (November, 2014) – The ready-to-drink (RTD) tea market continues to increase rapidly; In fact, spending in this category from 2012 to 2014 increased from $6.7 billion to $8 billion. This growth is attributed to a number of factors, including convenience, the perceived health benefits of tea and the shift away from high-sugar soft drinks, says John Crandall, Vice President of Sales for Amelia Bay, citing market research and sales data.
