Sometimes translated as fruit that cries, the juicy acai berry, native to the Amazon region of Central and South America, provides a nutrient-dense, fruity element to our smooth tasting green tea, making this blend a delightful and nourishing cup of tea.
In the Know
Acai berries are the fruit of the acai tree, a tall, skinny palm that grows in the rainforests of South America. Bearing a rich, succulent flavor, and dense in nutrients, acai berries have served as a food staple for many of the native cultures for centuries, but it is only in the last few decades that this berry has begun to appear on the world market. Acai berries have become a favorite ingredient in many juices and smoothies, not only for their lush flavor, but for their multitude of vitamins, minerals, and antioxidants. The fruity flavor blends well with the light and nourishing taste of green tea to create a blend that is refreshing and invigorating.
What's the Deal with Acai?
Fruit that cries … that is what Acai can be translated to mean. (There’s a story behind this, but we won’t get into that now.) Take one sip of our Acai Berry & Green Tea, and we’re sure the only tears you’ll shed are tears of joy. Do you think we're exaggerating? We promise we're not. There is so much to love about this energizing, delicious green tea blend, we want to help you dig in a little deeper to discover not only how delightful the taste but how beneficial the elements are as well.
Though botany actually considers acai berries a drupe (a thin-skinned fruit with a stone containing the seed) and not a berry at all, these small round fruits that grow on acai palm trees in the rainforests of Central and South America have been prized in their native land for centuries. Their Oxygen Radical Absorbance Capacity (ORAC) score surpasses that of blueberries!
Quick lesson: “A blue, violet, or red pigment found in plants.” So what? you may ask. Here’s the skinny: anthocyanins belong to a class of molecules called flavonoids, which, if you’re a Buddha Teas regular you may already know are polyphenolic compounds loaded with antioxidants.
What does Acai Berry & Green Tea Taste Like?
We know that some green teas can turn bitter. We also know that some berry teas profile as tart. Our good news: Not this one. Our Buddha Teas Acai Berry & Green Tea isn't too green, and isn't too berry … No, this unique tea provides a subtle, yet complex and potent blend of two antioxidant-rich elements that we’re certain you’re going to love.
During the hot summer months, we like to drink this tea cold. By steeping several bags at once, then adding ice and a favorite sweetener, you’ve got yourself a super summertime iced tea, filled with the goods your body craves, without including additives that often accompany tea blends.
