Açaí is everywhere these days and we, too, are fans of the powerful superfood from the rain forests of Brazil. Açaí offers a host of health benefits, not least due to the fact that it contains 10 times more antioxidants than red grapes and 10 to 30 times the anthocyanins of red wine, according to Dr. Perricone, research dermatologist and creator of Perricone's Nutritional Face Lift.
We most recently have been enjoying the Amazon berry in the Organic Blueberry Acai offering from White Lion Tea. While we appreciated its pleasant fruity taste, we have to say that it’s not so much blueberry that greets you in the bouquet and on the palate but rather mixed dried fruits with a strong dose of rooibos. But evoking holiday meals, it’s a perfect brew for the cold season, and we’re always happy to support organic offerings. Add a teaspoon of White Lion Tea’s precious crystallized honey pearls (only 12 calories per teaspoon serving) to amplify the delicate fruit flavor.
Price: 25 sachets in bulk $16; silver tin with 18 sachets in bulk $15.50; the Deluxe Tea Gift set pictured includes a White Lion Tea of your choice, Honey Pearls, a Tea-for-Me teapot and a card, all for $96.
