347 %. That is how much the sales of capsules in Sweden increased in 2011 (Source: AC Nielsen, Jan 2012).

Löfbergs Lila is launching tea capsules under the trademark Kobbs: Himlagott, Citron & Lime (Lemon & Lime) and Earl Grey.

- The possibility of brewing one cup at a time in a quick and easy way is a success. It is great to be able to offer all tea drinkers this easy solution.
