Coffee Leaf

Called Kuti in Ethiopia (and also popular in Indonesia), Coffee Leaf tea has been drunk there for centuries, long before coffee bean roasting was invented. The locals believe that this tea (which tastes like an earthy green tea) stems hunger and energises the body and mind.

Researchers in England and France have recently found that Coffee Leaf tea contains more antioxidants than black or green tea. This is because it contains high levels of the phenolic compounds mangiferin and hydroxycinnamic acid (credited with lowering the risk of heart disease and diabetes, reducing cholesterol levels and protecting neurons in the brain).

This healthy and gently invigorating tea is a delicious alternative to regular tea.

Directions: Steep one teaspoon per cup in hot water for 3-5 minutes.
