Who doesn’t love a good old-fashioned afternoon tea? The delicious macaroons, dreamy cakes, the crustless cucumber sandwiches and of course the tasty variety of teas…There is something so lush about sipping on tea and eating delicious desserts don’t you think? Well New Zealand, get ready because Natvia has a BIG sweet sugar-free surprise for you. We wanted to bring a special kind of event to the sugar free fans in Auckland. At Natvia, we are always on the lookout for new opportunities to help the world live a healthier and happier lifestyle, without sugar so we came up with something great (of course)

This summer, Natvia is bringing New Zealand the ultimate high tea experience- the sugar free way. You can now celebrate this decadent English tradition in a healthier, lighter way. Isn’t that amazing?

That’s right, we have just launched a series of exciting Sugar Free High Tea events in Auckland which means all those treats will be oh so sweet but without sugar. The events will be held at some of Auckland’s most prestigious hotel venues, where you and your group can relax and indulge in our amazingly tasty desserts sans sugar. This is the perfect “Girls day out event”.

THE HISTORY OF THE HIGH TEA 

We all love eating delicious cakes whilst sipping tea and chatting with the gals, but where do High Tea events actually come from? Well we fed into our curiosity and dug a little deeper in the subject. Well, according to our research, this sophisticated tea-ritual first started in Britain way back in the 1940’s. The history says that Anna, the Duchess of Bedford was the one who made these luxurious events a trend in England. Due to the lifestyle back then, meals were only scheduled twice a day, and they were breakfast and dinner. The Duchess of Bedford however was not completely satisfied with the 2 meals a day tradition. Just like us, she would get to a point during the day when she’d crave a little snack. Wanting to indulge in a quick treat, she found comfort in a daily cup of tea.  She enjoyed these afternoon tea breaks so much that she began inviting friends over to join her. Soon, afternoon high tea parties were everywhere and now they are even more popular than ever. And now we are making them even better, leaving sugar behind.

Don’t miss out on this awesome experience!

See you there!
