It is packed in aseptic carton packaging from TetraPak. The recommended retail prices are BRL3.19 (USD2.00) for a 250 ml carton and BRL7.49 for a 1-litre carton. It was initially launched in the markets of São Paulo and Rio de Janeiro. “Coco+Tea is the first natural mixture of coconut water and tea, nothing similar exists in Brazil.
