What’s so good about it?
Our Aquamin Sea Mineral Complex is an Arctic sea algae grown on the ocean floor off the coast of Iceland in the North Atlantic Ocean, containing naturally occurring calcium, which contributes to normal energy metabolism.
A fusion of Blue Spirulina and Blue Butterfly Pea Flower make our vibrant Blue Superfood Blend. The brilliant blue colour of our Blue Spirulina is part of the chlorophyll pigment found in spirulina. Blue Butterfly Pea Flower is an ancient Thai botanical tea ground to a fine matcha powder, and has been used for centuries in Ayurvedic traditions for an array of differing purposes ranging from cooking to beauty.
Ancient adaptogenic herbs Ashwagandha, Siberian Ginseng, Licorice Root and Milk Thistle have been traditionally used to help relax in Ayurveda and Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries, and make Mermaid Latte the perfect drink to wind down with after a busy day, or as a morning and afternoon pick me up.
SERVING SUGGESTION: Add 1 - 2 teaspoons (5 g) to a little heated or chilled milk, stir to combine. Add the remaining milk to make 200 ml. If you would like it stronger, add 2 teaspoons.

Pregnancy and Breastfeeding safe?
All of our superfood latte’s are completely safe for consumption during pregnancy and lactation and for persons under the age of 15. This is due to our latte’s being made up solely of organic whole food ingredients.
Are they vegan?
Here at Nutra Organics we decide not to call ALL of our super latte’s vegan due to the fact that the Mermaid Latte (blue one) and the Golden Latte (yellow one) contain Manuka Honey. Some vegans decide to eat honey but for the sake of keeping it above board for those who don’t we we feel it’s better to play it safe. BUT luckily our Velvet latte (pink one) is completely vegan with not an animal sourced ingredient insight so there is something for everyone.
Is Manuka Honey ethical?
Supporting other local and ethical businesses that support us is deeply ingrained in the Nutra Organics ethos. That said we have especially sourced our Manuka Honey from a supplier that gathers it from many different busy bee hives up and down the Australian eastern seaboard. This makes sure that our bee’s are never overworked and are free to roam wherever they shall please. This keeps them very happy and also means that they are able to keep producing amazing manuka honey that makes all of us very happy too.
What makes Mermaid Latte Blue?
Mermaid Latte contains a Blue Superfood Blend that is made up of Matcha grade Butterfly Pea Flower tea and Blue Spirulina. Butterfly Pea Flower is a native Thai tea flower that has been traditionally used widely across southeast asian to colour everything from fabrics to traditional glutinous rice treats with its naturally occurring bright blue colour. We’ve also specifically added a pigment-protein called phycocyanin that is naturally occuring in Spirulina to lift the blue colour from basic to brilliant. We never EVER use any synthetics or artificial colours in our products and can guarantee you will love not only the colour but the fabulous chai flavour of our Mermaid Latte.
What do our Superfood Latte's taste like?
All of our Superfood Latte’s are traditional Ayurvedic chai based and will have hints of cinnamon, cardamom and ginger. Our velvet latte has a natural sweetness that comes from the beetroot whilst the mermaid is a full-bodied chai with clove and star anise added to enhance the spice profile. The golden latte definitely has a warm earthy flavour profile with turmeric being what brings in the sunshine.
Why do the spices in my Superfood Latte float?
]All of the ingredients included in the formulation of our Mermaid Latte (as with all of our products) come from wholefoods that are simply dried and ground. This means that no instantisers, thickeners or extra sugars are added to enhance the solubility of the spices. As such our spices may float to the top of your latte but you can rest assured it’s because they are the real deal. If you really would like to stop this from happening we suggest frothing the milk as this tends to keep them held in suspension a bit longer.
