Company Spotlight: Virtue Ice Tea



Naturally low calorie ice teas packed with antioxidants, vitamins & minerals


- A source of vitamins & minerals
- 63 calories per can
- Naturally sweetened
- No refined sugar
- nothing artificial


Virtue was inspired by my constant struggle with weight growing up. Once I lost the weight, I decided to stop drinking soft drinks altogether, as the majority of soft drinks do you no good whatsoever.

In the summer of 2013, when looking for a healthy and affordable ice tea I was surprised with the lack of options. Most were full of sugar or tasted very bland, with several overpriced brands.

No wonder the UK had never developed a real taste for ice tea!

I then spent months developing recipes with ice tea experts and constantly testing flavours with consumers, creating the most delicious and refreshing healthy ice tea ever.

In 2014 Virtue Ice Tea was born.

The SEIMEI concept is truly inspiring and its goal of creating never-ending funds became the main reason for my own involvement.

My involvement has ranged from the development and tasting of the different SEIMEI drinks, creating the two SEIMEI logos, sharing my visions for the images to supporting the SEIMEI campaign to the appointment of board members in the SEIMEI Fund.”
