Wild At Heart (cacao chilli chai) 100g
BRONZE MEDAL WINNER at the Australian Tea Awards 2017
For the dreamers, doers, and the untamed spirits. For those who are Wild at Heart.
Inspired by the desire to live a life of passion and purpose, to live outside the norm and go against the path laid before us. To create our dream life, our own path. To live a life fuelled by the wildness of your heart, and the edges of your soul. The corners of your mind that are dying to be seen and heard.
It is a little bit chocolate, a little bit chai and a little bit chilli to bring the heat.
No life should be wasted. No dream left unfulfilled. No song left unsung. No passion pushed aside.
Take all the wildness you are, embrace it, and dance to the beat of your own heart. When you feel yourself wavering on your path, Wild At Heart will help guide you back to your truth.
