Saftea Liners and tea urns

If your business serves iced teas, iced coffees, lemonades or fruit punches in commercial grade stainless steel urns, you have to check out Saftea® Liner.  This liner comes with an integrated tube that feeds through the spigot, preventing your teas or iced beverages from making direct contact with the urn dispenser or spigot, where bacteria is commonly collected.  With Saftea® Liner, cleaning your urns takes less than a minute, and you can rest assured that you are serving consistently great tasting beverages free from cleaning chemical residue that ensures safety and freshness for your patrons.  Your staff with thank you as it frees them from the tedious task of disassembling the spigot and scrubbing to remove harmful bacteria and mold.  For about the cost of a glass of iced tea, you gain happy employees and satisfied customers that will purchase again and again!
