BOSTON — The Boston Beer Co. is launching a line of cannabis-infused iced teas under the brand TeaPot in select Canadian provinces in July.
Each 12-ounce can of TeaPot contains five milligrams of THC and is crafted to minimize any cannabis taste or aroma. Additional varieties will be available in the coming months. Its first release, Good Day Iced Tea, is made with real lemon black tea and infused with Pedro’s Sweet Sativa, grown in Ontario by licensed producer Entourage Health Corp.
“TeaPot purposefully pairs the right tea with the right pot for the right occasion,” says Paul Weaver, director, head of cannabis at The Boston Beer Co. “Each can is precisely dosed for social gatherings with friends and family.”
“While beer is our middle name, we’ve also introduced successful hard teas, hard ciders, hard seltzers and canned cocktails,” says Dave Burwick, CEO of Boston Beer Co. “We’re encouraged by the continued growth of the cannabis-beverage category, and we believe it’s one of the next innovation frontiers. As we await further progress on U.S. regulations, we’ll continue to develop an exciting product pipeline in the federally regulated market of Canada.”
