With great pleasure, Chá Camélia is pleased to announce that it has started some tea related cooperative projects, such as the collaboration with artesanal chocolate makers. In these joint ventures, the cooperation of the like-minded people involved, who are creative and aware of the quality and originality of the products, give rise to shared ideas and visions, which lead to new products and projects.
Because we are passionate about tea and love everything about it, our line of Kombucha’s share the same philosophy of “less is more”, displaying the diverse and fascinating aromas of fermented tea. In partnership with Homelab, who since their inception, have always worked with our organic, small family produced teas to make their Kombucha’s and Niepoort with its range of natural Nat’Cool wines, we have developed two Kombucha’s based on quality teas. Kombu Viva is an elegant and very healthy drink, perfect to celebrate those special moments in our lives.
Flower Power Ljubomir
Flower Power is the magic of duality. This blend accredited by Ljubomir Stanisic and Nina Gruntkowski unites intensity and elegance, and makes the act of drinking tea a ritual of beauty and contemplation. The flowers of the tea plant (Camellia sinensis) are added to the summer harvested green tea leaves from Chá Camelia. Close your eyes and from this plantation in the North of Portugal comes a power that is only built: the power of the dream. The delicacy of the small flowers, the complex structure from the green tea, the low levels of caffeine, many antioxidants, vitamins and minerals will all help strengthen the body and soul.
Feitoria do Cacao
The Feitoria do Cacao in Aveiro is the only artisanal “bean to bar” chocolate producer in Portugal. The owners, Susana Tavares and Tomoko Suga, in collaboration with Chá Camélia, have developed a White Chocolate bar with Matcha and Tokujou Sencha. This fantastic new product combines the flavour of Matcha with the leaves of the Sencha, which adds a fascinating crispy element to the chocolate. This is a chocolate for lovers of the Japanese tea ceremony.
The Mindshake is new tea, which is the result of a cooperation between Camélia Teas and the Mindshake House (an innovative project of Na’Mente for the development of creative thinking). The base of this creative blend is a green tea with toasted rice (a traditional Japanese mixture) which has an innovative Portuguese touch in that it also contains yarrow (millefolium) and elderberry flowers. Drinking this tea should inspire for creative thoughts.
