Our currants are organic, bursting with flavor, Zante currants. They are made from Zante (aka Black Corinth) grapes. Black Corinth grapes are also called “Champagne Grape” by epicureans. These grapes are small, about one-quarter the size of raisins. They are seedless, very dark and have a tangy tartness to them. In addition to their high levels of antioxidants, dried currants contain a long list of other vitamins and minerals. Zante currants are used especially in baking in scones, currant buns, Christmas cake, Christmas pudding and mincemeat. They can be added to pancakes, muffins, ice creams, yogurt and tea blends too!

Acai Smoothie Bowl - by Safiya Motala
We keep seeing mouth-watering images of smoothie bowls out there, using our organic freeze-dried acai berry powder!
Acai berries are extremely rich in antioxidants, amino acids, fatty acids and dietary fiber. Shanti Tea uses freeze-dried organic acai berry powder, the freeze drying process retains most of the fruits nutrients. Plus, having a powder means it can be easily added to smoothies, baked goods, juices and more.
Besides being rich in antioxidants, here are some of the highlights of this superfood!
- Promotes hearth health - The antioxidants and plant sterols in acai berries help improve circulation
- Promotes skin health - Foods rich in antixoidants promote good good skin health.
- Aids in digestion - Since acai berries are high in fiber, they help to aid the digestive process. 1 tsp of freeze-dried powder contains about 4% of your recommended daily fiber intake
