Actress and singer Anna Camp opens the doors to Tiny House in New York City;
House reflects NESTEA's move towards simpler recipes, authentic tea flavor
and a new line of premium, real-brewed teas
Stamford, CT – May 17, 2017 – NESTEA® is partnering with actress and singer Anna Camp to show New Yorkers the joy of living simply, with the unveiling of a Tiny House in New York City. The 200 square foot house, located in Manhattan's Herald Square, embodies NESTEA's "less is more" philosophy as the brand introduces new, simpler recipes with fewer ingredients and a new line of premium, real-brewed teas.
"The new NESTEA brand and our new iced teas reflect what consumers are looking for in all aspects of their lives: simplicity," said Karen Ress, Vice President and General Manager of Tea Brands, Nestlé Waters North America. "The Tiny House embodies this philosophy, and is a place where visitors can stop, reflect, and be reminded of the joy of living more simply."
NESTEA partnered with Camp because her lifestyle synced perfectly with the brand. Camp has appeared in such programs as "True Blood," "Mad Men," "The Good Wife" and the "Pitch Perfect" movie series.
"Life today is anything but simple," said Camp. "From online to offline, work to play, life is overloaded with complexities that can make every day feel chaotic. I'm excited to partner with NESTEA to open its Tiny House and hope that it will remind people to embrace the simple joys in life."
NESTEA's Tiny House is located in Herald Square at the intersection of Broadway and West 35th Street. Visitors are invited to take a break from the hustle and bustle and tour the house the afternoon of Wednesday, May 17.
Starting at 9 a.m. EST, visitors can taste NESTEA's simply delicious new line of premium real-brewed iced teas and reformulated Classic iced teas. Celebrated lifestyle bloggers Inspired by Charm, Southern Bite and Hapa Time who selected the décor, food and style elements of the house will be on-site to share their tips and inspiration.
Following its appearance in Herald Square, NESTEA will take the Tiny House on the road with stops in Boston and Chicago this summer.
