San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) November 23rd, 2016

Pooki’s Mahi, a Silicon Valley startup of private label and custom Kona coffee single serve pods announced today it kicked off a third end-to-end pilot for select group of customers to assess chai tea single serves. The goal is to have Pooki’s Mahi’s repeat customers identify the savory chai tea pods, chai latte single serves and single serve chai tea pods flavors for an upcoming launch. Chai tea have a unique aroma and after taste. Pooki’s Mahi’s customers requested a variety of single serve teas, decaffeinated tea pods and oolong tea single serve pods.

Les Magsalay-Zeller, Pooki’s Mahi’s Founder/CEO explains, “Pooki’s Mahi completed the first pilot to prune the number of single serve tea flavors. Pooki’s Mahi’s initial single serve tea catalogue contained up to 30 different flavors across five to six tea varieties. Existing customers help drive Pooki’s Mahi’s product launches. Pooki’s Mahi’s customers requested a variety of tea pods, custom single serve teas, decaffeinated tea pods and oolong tea single seves.” 

The Silicon Valley high tech executive continues, “Pooki’s Mahi’s very lengthy pilot process tests single serve cup manufacturers capabilities to consistently produce custom pods using approved bill of material components, sustainable single serve cups, food grade pouches and an ecommerce approved ship-ready box. Pooki’s Mahi’s owns and manages all suppliers’ relationships. Single serve manufacturers produce 100% Kona coffee pods and single serve tea pods to Pooki’s Mahi’s specifications and are graded against a strict First Article Inspection (FAI) process.”

Pooki’s Mahi’s second pilot will prune and finalize the number of single serve tea pods flavors launching into several variety packs.

The tea pods fulfill Pooki’s Mahi’s goal to provide sustainable, high quality tea single serve cups used for existing online retail, custom promotional products and private label customers. Chai tea single serves are individually wrapped to keep chai teas fresh. Each chai tea cup lists the ingredients list, allergy information, 2.0 and 1.0 single serve coffee makers brewing instructions, nutrition information and basic company information for Pooki’s Mahi.

The new chai tea single serve pods are currently being tested with existing Pooki’s Mahi’s Kona coffee single serve pods and Hawaiian Islands tea customers. Pooki’s Mahi’s chai tea single seves can be purchased on Pooki’s Mahi and select online retailers and marketplaces. The transition of Pooki’s Mahi’s loose leaf teas to single serve tea pods featuring over 12 flavors individually wrapped in an environmentally friendly cup will complete after the pilot tests.

Pooki’s Mahi’s methodology to continuously improve existing products like Kona coffee single serve pods before and after launches was implemented in the new chai tea single serves. Pooki’s Mahi aims to confirm chai tea flavor combinations, the number of chai latte pods or chai tea single serve flavor infusions.

Pooki’s Mahi’s Single Serve Chai Tea Pods Flavor Goals:

  1. Confirm the number of chocolate combinations using dark chocolate or white chocolate mixed with fruit like ripened bananas or fresh baked pear.
  2. Determine the sweet combinations like creamy vanilla, caramel, honey or cinnamon.
  3. Identify the number of traditional chai tea single serve pods that tastes of cinnamon, ginger, vanilla or ginger.
  4. Confirm the unique tropical aloha islands flavors like coconut, vanilla, mango or guava mixed with ginger and cinnamon.
  5. Determine the number of decaf or caffeinated single serve tea pods.
  6. Confirm tea family like Holy Basil (Tulsi) or Rooibos for the tea base.

The Silicon Valley startup is focused on delivering high quality single serve tea pods and 100% Kona coffee single seve pods using Pooki’s Mahi’s expertise in operations and supply chain excellence, new product introductions and go-to-market launches.
