Before African Sunrise

Manila, Philippines – After a fleeting encounter with Master Tea Blender David de Candia’s latest infusion at the Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s Tea Appreciation workshop, you begin to Wonder – Can the greatest tea I’ve tasted in my life last for only one night?

The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf ends your tea and love woes with the official launch of African Sunrise as part of The Bean’s famed tea line. “I guess you could say it was love at first sip for everyboody who was there are at the cupping session for African Sunrise,” shares Paolo del Rosario, Marketing Director of The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf Philippines.

This full bodied, red herbal infusion uses African honeybush exclusively grown on a farm between the mountains of Riversdal in the Western Cape of South Africa. Its exceptional fusion of flavor and aroma comes from the sharp tangy taste of orange peel, the characteristic sweet honey scent of honeybush flowers and beautiful mallow flowers.

Following The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s commitment in exploring the diversity of tea, African Sunrise will come in three variants – hot, iced and latte – making it more than an after-meal routine.

To further heighten the tea drinking experience, The Bean recommends pairing each variant with gastronomic options on their menu like Pistachio Sans Rival and Cheesecakes when taking it hot, French Apple Pie and Honey Bran Muffin balanced with the creaminess of African Sunrise in latte and a light Chef’s Tuna Sandwich to complement a shooth iced tea.

“The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s passion for the perfect brew is what drives us to come up with new infusions like African Sunrise that connect to our client’s discerning tast,” says del Rosario.

And just like in the movies, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s Africa Sunrise proves that same as a great love affair, every great cup of tea deserves a second helping.
