Spring has sprung, and the Juice Bar is preparing itself for the coming months of sunshine, outdoor recreation and fresh air! If you are interested in weaning yourself off the winter months of coffee, take a look at our expanded selection of Rishi Teas and enjoy the benefits of a healthy, natural beverage to cleanse and refresh you every time you drink it! Tea has no calories, so it is the perfect drink to keep you feeling fit. Four cups of tea a day can provide you with significant amounts of zinc, Vitamin B2, folic acid and Vitamins B1 and B6. When taken with milk, which is the preference of 98% of the population, it has approximately 17% of the recommended intake for calcium. A cup of tea is also a good source of manganese, which is essential for general physical development, and potassium, which helps to maintain your body’s fluid balance. So, before or after your spring jog or walk, stop on in the Juice Bar and relax with a cup of one of our teas listed below and soon you’ll be feeling the benefits of tea!

Green Teas

Organic Sencha Special
This organic Sencha has a fresh early spring character with a clear taste and light grassy finish. A very refreshing everyday organic green tea.
Organic Jasmine Green Tea

Organic green tea is blended with fresh organic jasmine blossoms in a traditional scenting process. The green tea absorbs the natural jasmine essential oils from the fresh blossoms and imparts the sweet, soothing fragrance of jasmine in every cup.
Organic Melon Seeds
This green tea comes from Anhui, China, and is made by hand in woks with only the second leaf of a special tea bush variety. The single leaf resembles a melon seed as it opens, imparting a mellow flavor and crisp, fresh aroma.

Black Tea
Organic Earl Grey
This special blend of certified organic black tea and natural bergamot fruit essence has a superb citrus aroma and great taste. A perfect organic blend.
Organic Darjeeling
This Muscatel Darjeeling has an amber infusion with a nectar-like body and a vivid fruit and wild flower aroma.

White Tea
Organic White Peony
White teas are prized for their cooling and detoxifying properties by Chinese medicinal practitioners. This tea has a unique herbaceous aroma suggestive of bamboo and toasted nuts.

Herbal Tea

Organic Rooibos
Native to the mountains of South Africa, Rooibos is prized for its great flavor and contains important minerals and vitamins. Naturally caffeine-free, it helps relieve insomnia, nervous tension, indigestion, and allergic symptoms. Recent research also shows that it contains the highest known levels of anti-aging properties of any plant on earth.
Organic Peppermint
Oregonian peppermint is the most aromatic and potent form of this world-renowned mint. Its flavor is distinctive and its energy is calming, soothing to the digestive system and according to the ancients, promotes focus and clear thinking. It is said that mint also cures a hangover.
A comforting blend of blossoms and herbs blessed with a relaxing and refreshing energy. Serene is the composition of chamomile blossoms, organic peppermint leaves, lemon myrtle leaves, organic jasmine blossoms, organic lemongrass and lavender flowers.

The Bakery
The Bakery is experiencing some changes and if you have been looking for Liam’s delicious Vegan desserts, they have been discontinued. We are actively developing alternatives and we hope that you will enjoy the new creations as much as you loved his originals! If you have any suggestions for a new dessert or if you have recipes for us to try, we would love to hear about them! Thank you for supporting the Juice Bar and Happy Spring!
