About Rabea Tea
Rabea was trademarked in 1969 as a long-leaf tea grown and packed in Sri Lanka. It was originally shipped to and sold in Saudi Arabia in wooden caskets. Today, Rabea is a blend of teas from various growing regions around the world and is sold in supermarkets in containers specially designed to ensure freshness and continued purity of flavor.
Named one of the top 100 Saudi brands in 2013, Rabea rightly lays claim to the slogan “The Authentic House of Teas.” In Addition, “Extra Strong” Rabea Tea has also won the highly commended prize at Gulfood Awards 2014 in the Best New Beverage Product Category.
Over the years, its product line has expanded to meet the needs of the diverse taste profiles of the region. The brand’s distinct packaging is prominently displayed in supermarkets across the Kingdom.
