Hello Matcha! How much do you know about the goodness of Matcha? We’re huge fans of this extremely special tea, and we figured it was about time we introduce you!

Matcha’s vibrant green colour, rich antioxidants and delicious flavour have made it a hot foodie trend in recent years. Unlike any other green tea, its powdered form makes it highly unique for consumption and yields a very different sipping experience. To break down the process: high quality, shade grown Japanese tea leaves are stone ground into a fine powder and thus the leaves themselves are consumed rather than just steeped, amplifying the amazing green tea health benefits we all know and love.

Tea’s the season at Sloane, and we’re in the spirit to slow the pace and embrace the times.

COCOA CHAI CHAI INFUSED HOT CHOCOLATE

Published on Nov 25, 2016

The leaves are falling, the holidays are looming, and the most wonderful time of the year can almost be the most stressful. If you’re anything like us, sometimes you need a reminder to slow down and smell the cocoa. While tea may be our obvious drink of choice, we can’t deny the sweet satisfaction that accompanies that first sip of warm cocoa.  We’ve decided to give this cold weather classic a Sloane spin, and what better way to do this than with a tea infusion! The perfect pairing: Our Cocoa Chai Chai, a rich masala based tea featuring whole green cardamom, ginger, cinnamon and clove, topped with sumptuous Brazilian cocoa nibs. The result: A sweet and spicy treat we’re sure you’ll make over and over again.

Autumn…One of our absolute favourite seasons. Maybe it’s the way nature works its magic with the changing of the leaves, the cool, crisp air, or maybe it’s the comfort a pie brings when wrapped in buttery flaky pie dough. No matter what it is, it’s a time for comfort and festive celebration with our loved ones.
