nutTea Organic Foods
nutTea Organic Foods (nutTea) produce a line of 100% organic tea-infused energy bars.
Readying them for export in 2016, the company’s Tea Infused Energy Bars bring together the best of energy drink and energy bar products, offering a natural, healthy and nutritious snack with the added boost of caffeine, to help runners, hikers and busy people get through their day. These soft, chewy and delicious energy bars are currently available in two flavours — Cocoa Yerba Mate and Matcha Green Tea — with plans to expand their line to include bars flavoured with B.C. berries soon.
These bars are made with just a few energy-rich ingredients, including dates and cashews, and then infused with the power of tea. No additional sugars or syrups are added, and each bar provides the benefits of high fibre, healthy unsaturated fats and protein from nuts, over 12 vitamins and minerals, and between 34mg to 80mg of natural caffeine, giving their customers a boost of energy without the jitters and crashes. All products are organic, vegan, gluten free, non-GMO, made without dairy or soy, and use no artificial ingredients. Product safety is ensured through a packing facility adhering to all industry best practices and safety programs.
nutTea was established in 2013 in Victoria. Inspiration came when founder Mayank Chauhan and his brother were preparing for a hike along the Sunshine Coast, but were unable to find an energy bar without added sugars or grains. They decided to share some raw cashews and tea, and after an amazing five-hour hike, the concept for nutTea was born. Since launching, their energy bars have become a social media success story, with nearly 50,000 followers gained. nutTea maintains a commitment to sustainability by only using organic ingredients and minimizing the use of pesticides and chemicals. They also donate to various charities, including Scouts Canada and Ladies Learning Code.
