If you want to capture summer any time of year, this tropical-inspired drink is for you with exotic notes from passion fruit and a twist of citrus flavor!
A Passion for Health
Passionfruit green tea crystals dissolve effortlessly without any steeping, adding only their signature tropical aroma and flavor with the light hints of green tea. Japanese sencha green tea provides the backbone for this tea blend. Sencha contains prebiotic catechins that support a healthy gut. Green tea also increases satiety to help keep hunger at bay.
Sencha green tea is low in caffeine but for a restful night’s sleep be sure to enjoy it in the morning or afternoon, well before bedtime. L-theanine in this tea blend will provide a calm, focused energy without a jittery feeling. Green tea is rich in antioxidants, helping to support a healthy immune system and helping to protect cells from free radical damage.
Using fresh-squeezed orange juice means no surprises like added sugar or a juice from concentrate. Plus, real juice gives this tea drink a pop of tangy flavor and natural sweetness. Orange juice is well known for being a great source of vitamin-C. Vitamin-C supports the immune system and may reduce the risk of certain diseases by protecting cells from damage.
A splash of plant based milk adds a subtle creaminess and mellows out the tangibles of fresh orange juice. Coconut milk will play off the tropical notes of passion fruit, while cashew or almond milk will add subtle flavor letting the passion fruit flavor shine.
Make this a boozy island beverage by adding an ounce of white rum!
