Well, a high-end Chinese tea brand known as Lelecha (乐乐茶) that’s based in Shanghai, China, recently partnered with Heinz to come up with a duo of drinks that took plenty of references from its inspiration – from the ketchup flavour right down to the sauce packaging.

Both are said to contain zero artificial sugar, and the sweetness of the beverages comes purely from the fruits used in the concoction.

Allegedly packed with high amounts of vitamin C, the vibrant, colourful beverages are housed in a 350ml squeeze bottle that’s reminiscent of Heinz’s own ketchup bottle.

The only difference is the colours of the slushie-like drink and the sticker label on the bottle.

Unfortunately, Lelecha and this tomato iced teas cannot be found here in Singapore. But perhaps, this could be an inspiration for our local teahouses to recreate this tomato iced tea but in your time and space, of course.
