About Saicho.

For all those choosing not to drink alcohol, Saicho sparkling cold brewed teas have entered a growing non-alcoholic market and offering something unique that will transform a good meal into an amazing experience.

Saicho founders, Charlie & Natalie have always had a passion for food & drink. However, Natalie can't drink alcohol (she turns red & uncomfortable with even the smallest sip) so hasn't been able to fully enjoy the experience of food & wine pairing. 

Wanting to create unique non-alcoholic drink that could pair well with food, they turned to tea. There are such an incredible variety of teas & after 2 years of testing hundreds of different teas from around the world, they chose their first three teas; carefully selected to pair well with food.

The sparkling cold-brewed tea drink is unique, with a delicately complex mix of flavours from the teas used, Saicho is ideal for both refined dining & those seeking a detox from alcohol.

If you have a passion for working within the premium end of the drinks / non-alcoholic industry & would like to be part of an exciting new brand and it’s journey, keep a look out for new opportunities.
