The initial Cuppanut concept began with me sat at home, spooning desiccated coconut into empty tea bags (English Breakfast tea bags that I'd cut open and emptied out!) - soon after this I'd ordered empty tea bags and my dining table was transformed into my own little coconut tea factory!
I knew, even from this moment, I was onto something. However, JUST putting coconut into a bag wasn't quite enough. It lacked bite - it tasted weak. So I began to develop the idea.
After some research I found a food development association (that's actually their name! - Food Development Association! Or FDA for short - easier for me to say!) that could help me develop the flavours and steer me on the right direction.
After much deliberation we came up with the 3 flavours - Coconut, Coconut and Cranberry, and Coconut, Ginger and Turmeric - and we worked on these flavours for hours, altering the levels of each ingredient to get the flavours just right.
Throughout this process I always stayed true to my initial concept. All natural, all pure, all good!
Now that these 3 flavours are available, the Cuppanut team are already working on 5 new flavours - so keeping watching for news on these.
