A subrange of recyclable cardboard packs has been launched by digestive tea brand D’Amazonia.
The Sussex-based ‘functional infusions’ company, headed up by mother and daughter team Marcela and Polyana Tupinamba, is designed to offer a ‘real’ alternative to the ‘traditional purveyors’ of teabag ‘dust’.
D’Amazonia, on the other hand, says it uses 100% ‘natural’ ingredients in biodegradable tea pyramids.
“Having realised that traditional gym beverages (coffee + energy drinks) only gave short burst of amplified energy before we hit a brick wall mid-session, we set about creating our own blends of ‘substance over image’ functional teas, which combined fulsome flavour palates with added nutritional benefits,” said Marcela.
The company is observing an increase in their Digestive brew sales, with the advent of warmer weather and longer nights. The tea is made from turmeric, fennel, lemongrass, rosemary, sage, thyme, lemon, pineapple and apple.
Digestive pouches cost £15 (20 pouches) and each bag can be used twice.
