When a Welsh Reverend became the first European to document grapefruit in 1750, he called it the forbidden fruit. There is something about this colourful, juicy, tangy citrus ball that keeps summer on your mind, long after the sun has stopped shining.


Last year, we made a discovery of our own: grapefruit mint. It is a unique variety of mint that has the same flavour as our favourite fruit. Naturally, we blended this with another tropical treasure, papaya and a subtle green tea base. Get ready for summer in a cup!


Ingredients: Organic grapefruit mint, green tea, papaya chips


Health benefits:

Green tea: Green tea comes from the plant, Camellia sinensis. It is native to China and has been used for thousands of years. It’s famous for its high antioxidant content and used all over the world in food and drinks.


Papaya: Papaya is a tropical fruit originally from Mexico belonging to the melon family. It's famous for a special enzyme called "papain" which aids digestion and the breakdown of protein. In fact, traditional island peoples would always pair meat and fish dishes with papaya to capitalise on the extra enzymes and enhance digestion. Papaya is also high in vitamin C, beta-carotene, zeaxanthin and other minerals, making it an anti-aging, disease-preventing superstar.
