It's no secret I'm a big fan of coconut whether it's using coconut oil as a hair mask, drinking coconut water or purchasing products such as moistuisers and shampoo's with a coconut fragrance so when I heard a new brand of infusions called Cuppanut were due to be launched on the market last month I was very excited to try it.
This innovative product has been launched by International Superstar Gareth Gates, who first shot to fame in 2002 during the reality television series Pop Idol and has been following a very successful career ever since. As well as continuing to tour around the country performing at his own gigs he has taken lead roles in musical theatre including Joseph, Les Miserables, Legally Blonde and more recently Footloose (to name a few). Now the star has turned his hand to business and due to a combination of his healthy lifestyle and experimenting in his kitchen has come up with his new venture, Cuppanut.
Cuppanut infusions are bio degradable tea bags filled with real coconut which is mixed with a variety of different flavours. The first is 'Coconut' which is pure white in colour and smells delicious. The taste is slightly sweet, clean and full of flavour without being overpowering. To make, you simply add water, no milk or sugar is needed. Whenever I drink this one it reminds me of hot sunny days and holidays due to the tropical fragrance. Coconut is well known for it's health properties including, reducing cholesterol and protecting against heart disease and stroke so it is definitely something which is becoming more popular and people are starting to introduce it into their diets more and more.
The second flavour is 'Coconut and Cranberry' which is equally as tasty and looks beautiful too. When water is added to the tea bag it turns a pretty shade of pink (my fave yay!) and you can instantly smell this sweet, fruity mix.. it is divine. This is one of those drinks which is tempting to drink far too quickly because it smells so good and you risk burning your mouth but believe me it is worth the wait.
The final infusion is 'Coconut, Ginger and Turmeric' which has a more earthy flavour and turns the water golden. Not being a fan of ginger I was a little skeptical about this one when I first tried it but I have been won over by this unusual combination of ingredients. This warm spiced tea has a hearty flavour which I really enjoy drinking in the evening. Ginger and Turmeric is also said to possibly have anti inflammatory properties.
The packaging of the Cuppanut infusions is simple and 'natural' looking due to the use of simple brown cardboard for the boxes. I think this no fuss packaging suits the brand perfectly as these infusions are full of natural, pure, raw goodness and no artificial colourings or caffeine. They are cute, the font is modern and they would definitely jump out at me on a shelf. When I opened them up I was also surprised to see how pretty the teabags themselves look. Each flavour has its own distinct colour and I've never seen any other 'tea' products like it.. they almost look too nice to use!
The thing I love most about these teas is not only are they good for you but they taste amazing whether you have them hot or cold (they would be great in the Summer in pretty glasses, with ice and fruit e.g cranberries). The three flavours are also so different that no matter what your mood is there is a Cuppanut for you!
Cuppanut will be appearing on your highstreet in a popular retailer soon but if you can't wait that long take a look at the Cuppanut website where you can order each box of teas online (delivery is fast). Each box contains 15 teabags and are priced at £4.20 per box. You won't be disappointed!
I very much looking forward to seeing what the future has in store for Cuppanut. It has now become my 'go to' drink.
What do you think of infused teas and which Cuppanut flavour would you most want to try?
