The Point Loma Tea Scoop
We've had a lot of exciting things happen in the month of February so far! Here's just a snippet of what we've been up to:
February 12th: The Friends of NTC hosted a private party celebrating our brand new, renovated tea bar! We served iced Love Potion at the tea party (if you haven't tried this fabulous, fruity strawberry infusion, you must!)! It was such an honor to host our friends for the evening, thanks NTC!
High tea pastries!
Have you tried our chocolate teas?
Chocolate tea is a thing? Uh-huh, you betcha! More specifically, teas with cacao nibs! Cacao nibs are small pieces of crushed cocoa beans that add a chocolatey note to your tea without the guilt. The bioactive compounds found in cocoa have proven health benefits:
* Rich in flavan-3-ols, which provide nutrients and promote antioxidant activity
Rich in many minerals, including iron, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, manganese, and copper
Has anti-inflammatory properties thanks to cocoa polyphenols
What a great excuse to indulge in a cup of our Chocolate Cupcake rooibos tea!
You can find cacao nibs (a.k.a. crushed cocoa beans) in these yummy teas: Berry Mocha Truffle, Bon Bon, Chocolate Cupcake, and Love Affair.
