Product Definitions 2 ProductDefinition Black Tea Black tea is prepared from the evergreen “Camellia sinensis” bush. Previously known as “Ceylon Tea”. However, given the reduced content of tea originating from Sri Lanka (previously Ceylon), it was necessary to adjust the product terminology. Black tea undergoes a process of oxidation or fermentation, where the excess moisture is removed from the tea leaves, before they are crushed, fermented and then dried. The result is leaves that are brownish or black in colour. Iced Tea Presently, no regulatory standards exist regarding iced tea, making it difficult to differentiate between chilled tea beverages containing real tea solids/concentrates and chilled beverages with tea flavourings. Locally, iced tea is available in two types: Ready to drink Powder concentrates This report covers both types, where iced tea is combined with dry tea categories; the volumes have been dehydrated at the ratio of 87g of dry concentrate to 1 litre of iced tea.
Product Definitions (Cont.) 3 ProductDefinition Rooibos Rooibos is an herb native to the Cedarburg region in the Cape. The needle-like leaves of this plant are used to make an aromatic hot or cold beverage. Once harvested, the leaves are bruised, fermented and dried before being weighed and packaged. Rooibos is a specific product for South Africa, but due to the popularity of the product, there has been an increase in exports. Speciality Tea This category incorporates beverages that have an herbal base, rather than a tea base. As these are strictly not a tea, they are often termed herbal infusions rather than herbal tea. Infusions are defined as being brewed from the leaves, flowers, roots, bark and seeds of herbs and spices. Although Rooibos strictly falls under this definition, the product category is sufficiently large to stand as a category on its own.
5 Black Tea Black tea continues to have the greatest share of the tea market (56.0%). However, the category volume share has fallen by 2.3% as rooibos and speciality teas have gained ground. Globally, tea is the second most consumed drink after water. This mature category saw a slight decline in 2011 and marginal growth is expected in 2012. The 100-280g pack range continues to be the most popular pack size range comprising more than half of total black tea volumes for the base year. Iced Tea For another year slower single digit growth was seen within the ice tea market. This is the lowest volume growth in the history of the category. The rate of volume started to decline in the midst of the global recession as the economic slowdown put a cap on consumer spending. The recent stabilisation of the category in terms of volume growth could indicate organic market growth saturation. This would imply that new product offerings and innovative brand positioning coupled with linked marketing strategies are areas left to explore to ensure continuous market share stability against other non-alcoholic ready to drink beverages. The outlook for the category remains positive but conservative. Market Trends
6 Rooibos The popularity of rooibos continues to grow with the category showing an increase in volumes in 2011. This is the second consecutive year in which double digit growth has been experienced. The rooibos market share continues to rise as South Africans migrate from traditional black teas to rooibos. It is believed that this is largely due to the prevalence of the trend towards health and wellbeing. Unlike the other tea categories, a large percentage of rooibos volumes are exported, however, export volumes have remained fairly static in recent years. The outlook for rooibos remains positive with growth expected for 2012 and 2013. Speciality Tea Speciality tea continues to increase in popularity. Herbal and fruit teas with functional benefits, such as aiding digestion, are growing in popularity among health conscious consumers. However, as this niche category only makes a minor contribution to total tea volumes it did not have a significant impact on the total volume growth of the tea category. Market Trends (Cont.)
