The high growth iced tea beverage market has seen TCP Pioneer, of Taiwan and Shanghai, install more than 100 tea kneader extractors into manufacturing plants for major global beverage brands.

The concept behind the TCP-developed ‘tea kneader extractor’ was originally conceived in Japan, where almost 90% of tea processors use such machinery. The tea leaves come into full contact with the boiling water, where they are agitated by the extractor. The tea produced has a high quality colour, consistency and taste due to the fact that the tea leaves are able to spread freely in the hot water for maximum leaf exposure to the water.

The other advantage of the company's ‘kneader extractor’ process is the ability to add more water to the tea for controlled dilution in order to produce an optimum consistent product. The tea kneader extractor system requires less floor space than the alternative tea immersion-type machinery.

TCP is an established supplier of specialist machinery to the dairy, beverage and brewery markets and have over 20 years' experience in the manufacturing and assembly of processing equipment, with expertise in projects from pre-processing to final filling/packaging. They are an ISO 9001 company and comply with USDA design standards and 3A Sanitary Standards USA.

TCP Pioneer is represented in Oceania by HBM Packaging Technologies.
