This launch has come after the recent news in the 2016 Budget that the UK government will introduce a sugar tax by 2018.

Charbrew’s Ice Teas contain no refined sugar and both blends contain less than the proposed taxable threshold for sugary drinks.

Charbrew director Adam said: “Working with WH Smith PLC is a fantastic opportunity for my company.

“We aim to ensure the UK public have a very accessible option for a healthy and great tasting soft drink alternative.

Charbrew is a Manchester-based business, founded by tea hobbyist turned young entrepreneur, Adam Soliman. He launched Charbrew in 2009 with an ambitious aim to reinvigorate the UK tea market.
