Boutea, a loose leaf tea founded by Australian rugby union player Adam Ashley Cooper, is now available in Australia.
The range consists of four varieties: English Breakfast, Earl Grey, Green Citrus and Peppermint. Whilst the English Breakfast sticks to traditional roots of full-bodied flavour and maple colour, the Earl Grey delivers a strong floral aroma with a well-structured and creamy body.
For fans of herbal teas, the addition of citrus peel balances the earthiness of traditional green tea in the Green Citrus blend whereas the Peppermint delivers a slightly restrained peppermint profile ensuring you can finish the whole cup.
Whilst living in Canberra and playing for the Brumbies, Ashley Cooper discovered his love of tea. Outside of playing, training and sleeping, he and his team mates created a ritual of going to cafés together to socialise off the field.
During this time, he lived next door to tea connoisseur Jody Hillier who introduced him to the many intricacies of the world of tea. Their shared passion for a remarkable brew resulted in a partnership where five years later, Boutea was born.
This premium tea is now available for purchase via the company’s website. As well as the taste, the simple yet classic black and white aesthetics is intended to create a visual point of difference from other teas on the market.
