HIGH TEAS

There’s a per­fect blend to match your needs

Red Magazine - - News -

All teas come from the camel­lia sine­sis bush, which has dark green leaves. What makes each vari­ant tea taste dif­fer­ent, how­ever, are the en­vi­ron­ment and cli­mate con­di­tions in which it is planted. Whole leaf tea al­lows the leaves to keep their nat­u­ral fla­vor, which makes for a fla­vor­ful cup. Th­ese teas can come in a va­ri­ety of fla­vors, from rich black teas to the more re­fresh­ing green teas. The Cof­fee Bean & Tea Leaf ’s Chai tea is a blend of black tea, cin­na­mon, clove, car­damom, and other spices that lend it a spicy aroma and taste. On the other hand, their Gen­maicha green tea is a mix of Sen­cha tea, toasted rice, and puffed rice, with the Sen­cha leaves pro­vid­ing sub­tle fla­vor and the toasted rice adding some sweet­ness to this blend. Aside from the clas­sic black and green teas, they also of­fer fla­vored black teas, fla­vored green teas, and herbal in­fu­sions. Their Trop­i­cal Pas­sion is a com­bi­na­tion of Cey­lon black tea, pas­sion fruit, guava fruit fla­vor­ing, and marigold flow­ers, and can be served ei­ther steeped or as a tea latte. Their Straw­berry Cream vari­ant mean­while is a com­bi­na­tion of Chi­nese pan-fired green tea, straw­ber­ries, and vanilla, re­sult­ing in a well-bal­anced and creamy drink. For those want­ing to cut down on caffeine, the cof­fee shop’s herbal in­fu­sions are the best al­ter­na­tive. One of them is the Gin­seng Pep­per­mint, a fu­sion of gin­seng, eleuthero root, pep­per­mint, and other herbs that in­crease stamina, re­duce stress, and boost the im­mune sys­tem. With th­ese dif­fer­ent blends, The Cof­fee Bean & Tea Leaf is able to of­fer pre­mium whole leaf teas that are har­vested from the world’s most ex­clu­sive tea grow­ing es­tates and steeped in a va­ri­ety of tea cul­tures. •
