We know consuming tea brings a myriad of health benefits to the table. It delivers antioxidants, flavonoids and phytochemicals to the body; fights free radicals, can lower the risk of heart attacks or even boost muscular endurance. But, more often than not, we are either steeping loose tea leaves with the help of tea strainers or having our brews come from plastic “silk” pouches or GMO corn tea bags.
Enter: probiotic tea
Teabiotic, launched this month by the Singapore-based company, We Are Cultured, is here to change that. Offering not only the nourishing benefits of tea, these perfectly portioned sachets come packed with the benefits of gut-friendly probiotics. Allergy-free and convenient as an on-the-go wellness beverage, the powder-filled packets are derived from freeze-dried ingredients. This ensures the tea blends retain close to 90% of its nutritional value.
