Cusa Tea Wins BizWest “Innovation Quotient” Award for Natural Products


Boulder, CO – October 25, 2018 – Cusa Tea, the first premium instant tea, takes home BizWest’s 19th Annual Innovation Quotient Award for Natural Products. Over one hundred companies gathered as finalists at the Embassy Suites by Hilton in Boulder to compete and stand out as the winner in one of ten product-and-service categories.

“It’s such an honor to have been nominated for the BizWest IQ Award, and then to have won is truly a surreal moment for the brand,” said Jim Lamancusa, Cusa Tea’s founder and CEO. “We have grown so much in the past year, and with this award under our belt, we continue to feel the forward momentum as we disrupt the tea industry.”

Cusa Tea is the first of its kind and uses innovative technology with 22 patents. Its unique cold-steep, vacuum-dehydration process results in premium, organic instant tea. All of Cusa Tea's flavors have zero sugar, zero additives, and zero fillers or preservatives. The tea dissolves almost instantly in hot or cold water, and is now available in six flavors: Lemon Black, Mango Green, Organic English Breakfast, Organic Green, Organic Oolong and Chai.

Cusa Tea can be purchased online at or through more than 1,200 retail locations  across the country.
