Is Sencha Seaweed Wakame Tea the New Superfood?

We launched our new tea blend last week, Sencha Seaweed Wakame Tea, but how much do you know about this new super food that is sweeping the globe?

Wakame is a sea vegetable severed with many Japanese dishes, it starting to slowly make its way from the miso bowl to our tea cup, jammed packed full of antioxidants and nutrients, we figured, why don't we add it to other amazing superfoods?

Health Benefits of Sencha Seaweed Wakame Tea

So, we have used Antioxidant Rich Green Tea and the god-like qualities of Yerba Maté, blended with sweet refreshing taste lemon grass and Wakame to create a, well, a SUPER TEA!

Wakame is used as a part of the Japanese- influenced macrobiotic diet and is a slightly salty, sweet flavour, big in Asian cuisine for its high protein and calcium content, with its added anti inflammatory properties.

It is also used in Eastern medicine, used for detoxifying the blood, digestive ref lie and reproductive health- it has also be found to help reduce the size of tumours. You will also find it as an ingredient in beauty products, for its anti ageing qualities, the ability to re energise and hydrate skin and hair!

If you thought that was enough, it contains a compound called Fucoxanthins which is a metabolism supporting chemical which can assist you in weight loss as it breaks down fat. It is also inundated with healthy nutrients that our body needs; fibre, calcium, iron, magnesium and vitamins such as A through to D and Omega-3.

Needless to say that Wakame, is our new favourite super food in the office! This with the added bonus of the Yerba Maté which has

over 90 per cent more antioxidants then green tea, with immune boosting capabilities, it can also slow ageing, reduce stress and insomnia.
