Having built an almost cult-like following for its incredible coffee and teas, Orange County-based 7 Leaves Café launches a new Green Thai Tea on Thursday, March 17. Using St. Patrick’s Day to play up the bold color of this new version of 7 Leaves’ beloved Thai Tea, this milk tea is the first new specialty beverage to join the brand’s offerings in nearly two years.
“As we celebrate our 10-year anniversary this year, we want to present something new to our guests, who have come to expect a level of quality from the 7 Leaves brand,” comments 7 Leaves Co-Founder Sonny Nguyen, whose vision has led to 35 locations of 7 Leaves Café nationwide, with 8 more set to open in Southern California this year. “Our new Green Thai Tea took more than one year to develop – that alone supports the integrity of our brand and respects the trust we’ve built within the 7 Leaves community. After one taste, you’ll know why we’ll be growing the brand in six states nationwide by year’s end.”
The new Green Thai Tea joins 7 Leaves’ core menu of teas, including the highly popular Japanese Matcha, Summer Mint, Sunset Passion, and Strawberry Hibiscus. It is a sweet and creamy milk tea made with a jasmine tea blend for a fresh, floral taste. The intense floral flavor is the key differentiator between the new tea and its much-loved sister, Red Thai Tea, which features an Assam tea blend that has caramel notes. The Green Thai Tea is made with equal parts whole milk and heavy cream, but can be made with soy milk as a non-dairy alternative.
“Not only is our new Green Thai Tea a well-crafted drink, that is as simple as it is complex, it pays homage to Thailand,” explains Newton Hoang, the marketing force behind 7 Leaves, who shares that the tea leaves used in this new drink are sourced from a tea farm called ChaMaTrue in Thailand. “We feel extremely blessed and fortunate to have collaborated with the Thailand Authority of Tourism for the launch of this new beverage and, through that partnership, are extremely excited to be able to send one lucky 7 Leaves fan to Thailand to experience the rich culture from where the drink was birthed.”
7 Leaves’ new Green Thai Tea is set to launch at its locations nationwide on Thursday, March 17.
