Acai Berry Tea is one of the newest rages in herbal tea. The acai berry is very beneficial, rich in antioxidants and a great immune system boost! The acai tea can be found in the following blends:
Acai berries are very versatile and taste great, so they are now being used in all kinds of tea blends as noted above. Some studies and reports are showing positive results for acai based teas and weight loss or acai berry diet teas.
This combined with the health benefits of tea, black, green or white, creates a powerhouse tea that will really give your immune system a boost - really a wellness tea allowing your body to absorb the nutrients and benefits. Also full of omega fatty acids that are so good for us, Acai boasts two, omega 6 & omega 9 fatty acids.
I think that one of the things that makes acai a popular ingredient in teas is first the flavor - acai berries have a nice fruity flavor. This makes acai flavored teas ideal for serving as a brunch tea or a dessert tea. They are refreshing, and contain antioxidants - just like you would find in red wine. It also is a lovely purple blue in color when brewed. This looks great when served in white china tea cups.
Acai berry tea can be paired with many desserts - my favorite is to pair the tea with cheesecake (plain) or vanilla cakes. Chocolate and acai is also another nice combination. These are my favorites, and the vanilla or the chocolate really sets off the flavor of the berries.
Dr. Perricone, who has been featured on Oprah, includes the Acai Berry in his top 10 Super Foods! - A great reason to introduce your family and friends to this great fruity tasting tea.
Acai teas also are so pretty - they make a really nice gift tea if you are looking to impress a tea lover or just give a healthy drink to a friend. The berries really set off the tea leaves and the tea looks great in a jar, or in a clear bag tied with raffia or ribbon. Acai teas also are a best seller if you are selling custom blend teas at farmers markets or your local craft sales.
You can make your own acai berry tea by obtaining some acai powder or freeze dried acai. The powder makes it really easy for me, and I get mine from Mountain Rose Herbs they offer discounts of up to 40% when buying in bulk.
I simply add the acai powder to my loose tea and brew. The aroma while it is steeping is delicious and fruity. I also can use the powder to make smoothies, and other drinks, including acai iced tea. Visit Mountain Rose Herbs and order some acai powder. It is certified organic, and one of the highest quality acai powders available.
There are lots of different acai teas available over the last few years. Some of the more unusual are acai kombucha tea - and there are several beauty treatments that combine green tea and acai. These are sold by high end cosmetic lines typically as a face mask that will detoxify your skin and provide radiance and glow. Green tea (green matcha powder) and acai powder in a facial mask is just what your skin ordered. This is a powerful natural face mask that delivers the results we all look for in a rejuvenating facial product. So bottom line, acai berry tea is not just for drinking!! You can run a google search above and find this facial mask for sale online.
