New Leaf Brands, Inc.: The Official Beverage of Taste
Founded by Eric Skae in 2004 in Orangeburg, New York, New Leaf Brands (OTCBB: NLEF) were born out of the vision to create the best tasting and healthy ready-to-drink (RTD) beverages.
CEO Skae believes, "When delicious flavors aren't obscured by high fructose corn syrup or artificial ingredients, the tea tastes better." As testament to this core commitment, New Leaf's 14 all-natural flavors of RTD teas are made from only the most carefully selected ingredients, the finest natural flavors and with 100% organic cane sugar. The company is passionately devoted to providing beverages that deliver a superior taste experience, which justifies New Leaf's position as the "Official Beverage of Taste." In 2009, "Everyday with Rachael Ray" named New Leaf's Strawberry iced tea as the "best flavored white tea."
