For as long as I can recall I have been a big fan of drinking tea, English Breakfast and Matcha being my favorite. My collection of tea has graduated to the point that for years it has taken over two shelves that are dedicated to all the different varieties that I manage to collect each year.
Recently, I had the pleasure of trying a brand of tea called Wize Monkey which is made using coffee leaves and has an array of benefits such as it is low in caffeine, helps with mental focus and contains antioxidants.
I was really impressed with their Mango Party tea, which has a nice flavor, and is not acidic which is a big turn off for me. I enjoyed drinking it without a sweetener because I felt the flavor held its own, however the nice thing about this tea is that you can’t over steep it and you have the freedom to experiment by adding creamer or make a pitcher of ice tea with fresh or frozen fruit added. The tea is also great to drink during the winter or if your trying to reduce your caffeine intake. In my case my doctor had put me on a stronger inhaler because the winter weather flared up my asthma and told me to stay away from caffeine. This tea was a lifesaver.
Wize Monkey was founded in November 2014, by Max and Arnaud who met while attending school for their Masters of Int’l Business in Bordeaux, France in 2013, since then, they have won Best New Product at the 2015 World Tea Expo which has generated worldwide press and a following of customers from 35 countries.
What is special about Wise Monkey is, they care about the people they work with and are making an impact in Nicaragua communities by creating 1,000 year-round jobs on coffee farms which mitigates seasonal hunger in these communities. This in turn boosts rural education and student retention, since young students do not have to leave school to pursue jobs due to a lack of stable income at home.
