The Bangor Daily News has published an article about Finest Kind Tea Concentrate and its founder Jay Lombard.
Moving to Portland in January, the environment was right to launch Finest Kind Tea Concentrate. He made his first batch in June and now offers two flavors — wild Maine blueberry white tea and half and half, which is black tea and lemonade concentrate, also known as the Arnold Palmer.
Sold in 16-ounce glass apothecary bottles for $6.99, the strong tea blends can be fizzed up, iced down, heated or blended with tap water. Lombard also recommends mixologists add rum or gin for an easy cocktail.
Finest Kind is a competitor in The Next Big Food Thing contest being run by online grocery service Fresh Direct.
