Tea capsules – from luxury beverage to lifestyle drink
Tea comes in countless varieties, each with unique characteristics. Brewing the perfect cup of tea requires precision in steeping time, water pressure, and temperature, which can vary for each blend. Achieving expertise in this art takes years.
Alternatively, modern tea machines and high-quality capsules make it simple to produce a perfect cup of tea at the touch of a button. Tea, known for its health benefits, is in high demand, especially with functional ingredients and natural additives.
Tea capsules shine in this market, allowing for the addition of vitamins and minerals to enhance tea's health benefits. Superfoods like turmeric and lemongrass transform tea into a preservative-free, flavor-enhancer-free, healthy beverage.
Identifying challenges and finding solutions
What are the best brewing parameters for a particular tea blend? Which material should I choose for my tea capsules? How should I handle and package the tea to preserve its flavors for as long as possible? Rychiger knows your market and therefore also the challenges that you as a tea producer face.
Each tea has its own secret recipe. We decipher it for you to help you define the perfect brewing parameters for your blend. With this information, we design your tea capsules and mark them with a code that is read by the tea machine. Based on this code, the machine will automatically adjust the brewing parameters to suit your blend. At the push of a button, the water is heated to the right temperature, while the tea capsule housing controls the pressure and volume of water passing through the leaves. Within a few minutes, consumers can enjoy that perfect cup of tea.
To make sure that consumers can enjoy the full flavor and health benefits of your tea product, it needs to be packaged correctly. The capsules must be air-tight and able to withstand high water temperatures. Plastics such as polypropylene have proven best suited for the task, as they are perfectly air- and water-tight and free of harmful substances.
You might ask whether plastic capsules fit a healthy and sustainable lifestyle. We would say yes, as plastics are recyclable, and some are even suitable for molecular recycling so that old capsules can be broken down to a material from which new capsules can be produced without adding any fresh plastics. With molecular recycling, the material flows in a closed loop, and this is very much an idea that appeals to people who are committed to a healthy and sustainable lifestyle.
Preserving flavors – at any output rate
To obtain a full flavor and optimum color, tea leaves must be harvested and sorted with great care. For tea capsules, the product must be filled in a process that protects its ingredients, and the capsules must be sealed airtight. That is where our knowledge and experience come to the fore. We know how your tea needs to be prepared for packaging, and work with you to find a complete solution that covers all processes upstream and downstream of capsule filling, including end-of-line packaging.
We develop machines that guarantee optimum seal quality. With Rychiger filling and sealing plants, you have full control over all process parameters, and our machines compensate deviations within defined tolerance ranges. Our technology makes sure that your tea retains is natural aroma so that its full flavor and color reach the cup.
