Reunion Island Coffee is celebrating the launch of its Benchmark line of loose leaf teas, which will be available to its office coffee service (OCS) distributors.
The Benchmark line was developed by Reunion Island’s director of coffee Adam Pesce. He comments, in a prepared statement, on the motivation behind stepping out of his coffee comfort zone: “Loose leaf is undeniably the best way to drink tea, and we wanted to create a lineup that complemented and matched up with our coffee in terms of quality, consistency, and even the branding.”
The Benchmark menu includes all the traditional teas along with more unique tastes like Jasmine Pearl, Lemon Oolong and Sweet Hibiscus. “Benchmark is all about taking the tea basics, like English Breakfast, Earl Grey and so on, and doing them really, really well. We want the lineup to serve daily tea drinkers as much as it does the occasional consumer,” explains Pesce.
