1.1 Product Brief
Hyleys Tea Company (UK tea beverage brand) launches a 100% natural tea beverage extracted from herbs and fruits. Hyleys slim tea introduced newly has two flavors: mint and chamomile flavors. The product can help people to fall asleep faster, as it is caffeine-free, so it enables people to have a fast, soft and healthy sleep pattern after drinking, while have a good spirit after waking up. This series of tea beverage is rich in antioxidants, it can reduce skin damage caused by free radicals, it has good anti-aging properties. Regular consumption of this product can reduce wrinkles and make skin look younger and more supple (Hyleys Tea, 2016).
1.2 Target Market
STP refers to that in accordance with certain criteria on the overall market segmentation, an enterprise selects one or more segments as its own target market, aiming at target market to carry out product positioning (Gad nd Dacko, 2013).
1.2.1 Market segmentation (S)
The report is in accordance with ages to divide consumers into three segments: first is consumers who are less than 30 years old, consumers of this age generally have a good physical health, their awareness and demand to keep health by tea drinks is not strong (Wang, Su, Liang and Sun, 2016).
Second is 30-60-year-old consumers, eating habits, stress and other problems will cause obesity, insomnia and other health problems, and consumers, especially female consumers of this age group pay more attention to maintenance, they are more concerned about anti-aging products (Wang, Su, Liang and Sun, 2016). Third are consumers who are more than 60 years old, due to the deterioration of bodily functions, this part of the consumers treat their own health very seriously. However, they have more emphasis on maintaining a healthy condition through traditional medical means such as surgery, medication, physical therapy, exercise, etc., for the elderly, there is relatively low degree to accept slimming tea drinks (Wang, Su, Liang and Sun, 2016).
1.2.2 Targeted market (T)
According to the characteristics of different market segments, the target market for this marketing plan is the 30-60 year-old consumers, because this part of consumers have a relatively strong demand for Hyleys slim tea, and this part of consumers have less leisure time, they need a product which can help them to keep a good health condition, at the same time, they do not need to spend too much, Hyleys slim tea just meets this requirement (Wang, Su, Liang and Sun, 2016).
1.2.3 Market positioning (P)
By catering to the mainstream health, weight loss concept, coupled with Hyleys’ own advantages, together with recommendation by weight loss experts, well-known stars, Hyleys slimming tea will be developed as a high-quality, safe, healthy, natural and reliable weight loss tea brand image.
2. Marketing Audit
SWOT analysis is a scientific analysis method used to determine its own competitive strengths, competitive weaknesses, opportunities and threats, so as to organically combine a company's strategy with its internal resources, external environment (Valentin, 2005).
2.1 SWOT Analysis 
• Compared with traditional health tea, Hyleys takes natural herbs and fruits as raw materials, it is more secure.
• Traditional health tea is bitter and many consumers do not like it, but Hyleys has a fresh taste, consumers can enjoy the fun of tea in health care.
• Compared to other dieted foods and exercise to lose weight, Hyleys is very simple to use, and it can be absorb faster and the effect is faster (Hyleys Tea, 2016). 
2.1.2 Weakness
• As a new product, influence of Hyleys slim tea in the market is limited.
• Consumers do not well understand and recognize the effect of Hyleys slim tea.
2.1.3 Opportunity
• Currently, there are a small number of health tea manufacturers and the pressure of competition is relatively small.
• Improvement of standard of living and unscientific eating habits lead to the obesity problem in the UK is also more prominent, therefore, the needs for drinks for weight loss continue to increase.
• Health awareness of modern consumer has been increased, they prefer natural products (Wang, Su, Liang and Sun, 2016).
2.1.4 Threat
• More and more beverage companies will introduce similar slimming tea drinks.
• Consumers do not understand and are concerned about the quality of drink tea, which may affect consumers’ acceptance of this kind of drinks. 
• Awareness and culture of losing weight through exercise is very popular in the UK, which is likely to affect consumers’ willingness of drinking slimming tea to lose weight (Wang, Su, Liang and Sun, 2016).
Through the above analysis, this marketing plan will use SO strategy, namely, making use of the own strengths of Hyleys slim tea and its good external growth opportunities as to promote Hyleys. The market has relatively large demands for Hyleys slim tea, and therefore it should increase marketing investment while maintain and publicize the characteristics and advantages in terms of products to improve visibility and market share of Hyleys slim tea.
2.2 Competitor Analysis 
Health medicine has relatively clear efficacy, which is more in line with the majority of consumers’ spending habits. Health medicine has more or less side effects on human body and it is not healthy for long-term use, while Hyleys slimming tea does not have side effects and it is good for long-term use, there is no harm to human body, moreover, it has multiple health effects (Wang, Su, Liang and Sun, 2016).
Functional drink can provide vitamin supplements, energy, electrolytes, minerals, water, which is suitable for young people who like sports. Functional drink has much more harm to odonthyalus than Coke, compared with Coke Cola, functional beverage contains additive of a good variety of organic acids, which can break down odonthyalus, in turn erode tooth enamel. While functional drinks are more suitable for specific populations with physical loss, it is not suitable for general consumers (Wang, Soyama and Luo, 2016).
Carbonated drinks generally have a good taste, and because of long-term advertising, carbonated drinks are influential. Long-term consumption of carbonated beverages such as: Coke very easily leads to obesity and diabetes; phosphate in carbonated beverages will slowly affect human bones, leading to osteoporosis (Flynn and Okuonzi, 2016).
Traditional slimming tea has a certain effect of weight loss, it is made of natural materials with less side effects, but it has bitter taste, many consumers are not able to accept its taste (Wang, Su, Liang and Sun, 2016).
Hyleys slimming tea is made of natural raw materials, it does not contain caffeine, which can not only lose weight, but also help to promote sleep and have an anti-aging effect. While it has two flavors: mint and chamomile, consumers more easily accept it. However, as a new product, Hyleys slimming tea has limited influence in the market, consumers do not understand and recognize Hyleys slimming tea too much (Hyleys Tea, 2016).
3. Marketing Objective
3.1 Hyleys Slim Tea’ Mission Statement
Below is the business’ mission statement which has been made visible to the public on the company's home page. 
Hyleys Tea Company has become a true embodiment of premium English tea traditions. Superior taste of Hyleys tea distinguishes it on the background of other competitors. The fact has been verified by professional tea-tasters. Only the two uppermost tender leaves and the bud are used for the production of high quality Hyleys tea. These two-leaves-&-buds are plucked manually with much care. The plucked raw leaf is then taken to the factory, where it undergoes several stages of processing (Hyleys Tea, 2016).

Enterprises’ pricing goal is to promote sales to profit. This requires that enterprises should not only consider the cost of compensation, but also consider consumers’ acceptance of price (Kotler and Keller, 2015). The raw material of Hyleys is high quality natural herbs and fruits with high technology and a health effect, so the price for Hyleys should be higher than the prices of cola, energy drinks and traditional weight-loss drinks, while the Hyleys’ other similar products are priced at 4.4 pounds / 250 ml, although the price is more expensive, considering that Hyleys’ target consumers are mainly 30-60 year-old consumers, their spending power is stronger, so it is priced at 4.4 pounds / 250 ml, which is suitable.

Considering marketing channels, this marketing will take Omni-channel retailing, namely, in order to meet consumers’ purchase needs anytime, anywhere, enterprises will take approach of integrating physical channels, e-commerce channels with mobile e-commerce channels to sell goods. In terms of physical channels, Hyleys products will be sold in large supermarket chains in the United Kingdom, for example, COSCO, TESCO, Waitrose, Whole Foods Market, as well as small supermarket chains and convenience stores, such as SPAR, Iceland, the Co-operative Food and so on.
