Best friends create Europe’s first matcha green tea-powered canned energy drink

PerfectTed led by entrepreneurs, housemates and best friends, Marisa Poster and brothers Teddie and Levi Levenfiche, have created Europe’s first matcha green tea-powered canned energy drink.

Launching in Tesco in single cans (RRP from £1.75), it is included in the Meal Deal and on the 13th March in new four-can multipacks (RRP £6,00).

Tesco buyer, Libby Lee, said the retailer is excited about a partnership with PerfectTed to grow the natural energy category with a range of “delicious drinks that put functionality and health first.”

Marisa Poster sees PerfectTed as disrupting the high-growth energy drink market with an “approachable brand and products that outperform on health, functionality, and flavour”.

She added: “We are thrilled to make matcha’s superfood properties and longer-lasting energy more accessible in Tesco’s iconic Meal Deal and in multipacks.”
