Growth Marketer

Zest Tea

Apply for this Job

Winner of Best New Product at the 2015 World Tea Expo, Zest premium energy teas offer the same energizing kick of coffee without the negative side effects. Our teas have as much caffeine as coffee -- about 3X the levels of traditional teas -- and amino acids that help create a steady alertness, instead of the jitters and crash associated with other caffeinated products. 

Zest Tea currently has a team of five working out of the Pig Town neighborhood of Baltimore. We’ve raised a seed round to help us accelerate our marketing efforts and propel us into brick and mortar retail. In late 2017, we will be launching a new bottled version of the product and raise a Series-A funding round to support that launch.
