How Your Monatea is Made
We call this Step 0, because our manufacturing process can only begin once this step has been completed. Suppliers are required to provide certification ensuring integrity and organic status of all our ingredients. Each ingredient for each shipment and batch is inspected for compliance and is fully traceable via Fynbos.io, our internally developed, blockchain-backed traceability system.
Before the carefully controlled process of making Monatea can begin, all of our equipment is specially cleaned in order to ensure absolutely zero contamination of our products. This process further guarantees the organic status of any Monatea product.
The water used in our cold-brewing process is filtered to ensure the highest levels of quality. After the filtered water is added to an infusion vessel, it is then chilled and ready for cold-brewing.
All of our ingredients are quarantined once they arrive at the factory, this is to ensure that the ingredients remain 100% organic and to avoid any contamination. These ingredients are then added to custom two meter long tea bags that ensure maximum diffusion. That’s a big teabag!
Cold-brewing Process Begins
The large teabags are then placed into the previously filtered and chilled water. This is where the good stuff happens! Cold-brewing ensures a smooth and floral flavour, and also preserves the important nutrients and properties of Rooibos and our other ingredients, such as Phytonurients and Adaptogens.
Variety Ingredients Added
During the cold-brewing process, variant specific ingredients, such as Hibiscus, berry extract, ginger etc. are added to the base ingredients to produce our four distinct flavours. This allows us to very accurately control the taste profile as well as the healthy benefits of our carefully selected ingredients.
Our Lightly Sweetened Variants
We know some of you might like to treat yourself with a little healthy dose of sweetness, that’s why we have developed our Lightly Sweetened line. If the batch we are brewing needs to have a bit of a sweet edge, we add some unrefined cane sugar. The result? A sweet treat that is as healthy as it is delicious!
Adding Some Bold Bubbles
At Monatea, we like to be bold and to the point. In order to add some more boldness to our beverage and enhance your taste experience, our drinks are carbonated to produce a tantalizing taste sensation. We promise, it will put a sparkle in your step!
All Bottled Up
Lastly, the resulting Monatea is bottled, labeled and packed into our beautifully crafted 6-packs. With a few last words of love and encouragement, it is now ready to begin its journey to you, our beloved rebels. The moment you have a bottle of Monatea in your hand and take that first sip, you will instantly know what delicious healthiness should taste like!
