Like tea? Try vis­it­ing Re­nato’s

Palm Beach Daily News - - TODAY - By M.M. CLOUTIER

For years, Re­nato’s has been known for its fine cui­sine and ser­vice, but these days, tea drinkers may have no­ticed some­thing else.

The el­e­gant restau­rant in the heart of Via Mizner has been of­fer­ing a luxe tea that com­mands its own menu.

Sev­eral blends of Tea Forté are fea­tured at Re­nato’s. Mas­sachusetts­based Tea Forté prides it­self on “mak­ing no com­pro­mises” on the qual­ity of its glob­ally sourced teas.

($8 each) rang­ing from Bom­bay chai to Earl Gray, Chamomile Cit­ron and Ginger Lemon­grass.

Those sin­gle-serv­ing pouches are silky pyra­mid-shaped Tea Forté-de­signed “in­fusers” with a wire stem topped with a tiny green leaf de­sign.

The pouches steeped in Tea Forté-de­signed tea pots, and tea is then poured into Tea Forté-de­signed cups.

“The teas are won­der­ful and the pre­sen­ta­tion is beau­ti­ful,” said Jose-Luis Du­ran, who coowns Re­nato’s with his res­tau­ra­teur and mother, Ar­lene Deside­rio.

A few years ago, Du­ran said, “My mother had tried it (Tea Forté) in a ho­tel while trav­el­ing and al­ways re­mem­bered it fondly, and then my wife and I had been us­ing it at home. So, when the sub­ject of re­vamp­ing our tea pro­gram at Re­nato’s came up, it was a no-brainer.”
