The team behind Haskapa, the world’s first all-natural haskap superberry powder, has teamed up with artisan tea company, Bird &Blend, to launch a duo of delicious tea infusions perfect for Spring. Containing tangy purple haskap berry powder and nourishing green matcha, the two blends of tea are the ultimate way to enjoy your daily intake of superfoods.
The Haskap and Matcha Blend (30g) is made from 75% haskap berry and 25% pure grade Japanese matcha. This fruity and tangy berry tea is complemented with a distinctive matcha taste and with an eye-popping purple colour sure to brighten your day. Haskap berries have vibrant blue skins and deep crimson flesh which contain remarkably high levels of anthocyanins, one of the highest recorded anthocyanin values of any berry. They also contain 3 times more antioxidants than blueberry and are naturally high in Vitamin C.
The Matcha and Haskap Blend (30g) contains 75% pure grade Japanese matcha and 25% haskap berry, boasting a complex taste with a tangy berry accent. Typically, matcha green tea contains flavonoids, caffeine, chlorophyll and L-theanine, with nutritious properties found in the entire tea leaf. Like haskap berries, matcha is also naturally high in antioxidants.
Perfect for a morning latte or an afternoon pick-me-up, the tea blends make approximately 30 servings and come in compact 30g tins which can easily be stored away in the cupboard.
How to make the tea:
Put 1/2 teaspoon or 1 bamboo scoop of the powder into a bowl or cup
Add a small amount of warm (not boiling) water
Whisk in a zig-zag motion until frothy
Top up with hot water and enjoy
To get the best results, try using a bamboo whisk, or for a sweeter option whip up your Matcha & Haskap blend as a hot tea with honey. If you’re looking for a cooler option, why not serve over ice for the ultimate iced latte?
The teas are available for £20 each and can be purchased at haskapa.com and birdandblendtea.com
