Tea & Coffee's Product Showcase:

A Candle Cafe

Fruits & Passion has turned its attention to the enchanting cafes of Italy with its new scented candle collection, Cucina Dolce. Evocative of the sights and smells of these cozy meeting places, the seven Cucina Dolce ambiance products are destined to transform any environment into a Mediterranean oasis. A caffeinated jolt of pure coffee and dessert fragrances, the scents evoke an Italian piazza, where espresso, roasted nuts and decadent desserts mingle all day long. The four fragrances include the following fragrances: Espresso, Fresh Cream, Nutmeg and Orange Zest, and Hazelnut.

The candles are available individually, molded into a traditional Italian café liquer glass, or in multiple-fragrance gift sets designed to enhance the senses with discernable dessert medleys. For example, Coffee Zabaglione can be created by burning Espresso and Fresh Cream. Nutmeg and Orange Zest, combined with Hazelnut create a crisp Biscotti. Decadent Tiramisu is created with the combo of Espresso, Fresh Cream and Hazelnut, and a Hazelnut Torta is “baked” with Fresh Cream and Hazelnut.

The Ingenious Teapot

Adagio Teas introduces “ingenuiTEA,” an exclusive product that radically simplifies the brewing of gourmet tea. It is aimed at consumers who recognize loose tea’s superior flavor and health benefits, yet shun it due to the complexity of its preparation. The new teapot helps alleviate these concerns by radically simplifying loose tea’s brewing process. One unique feature is its filtering system, which is activated by placing the teapot atop a cup. A valve at the bottom opens up, permitting crystal-clear tea to flow down.

“The superior flavor of gourmet tea is easy to demonstrate,” says Michael Cramer, Adagio’s marketing manager. “The more difficult change to enact had been to get consumers to follow their taste buds and embrace loose teas in lieu of the ultra-convenient teabag. The latter, mind you, still reigns supreme, but the barrier to entry had been dramatically lowered. To all those claiming gourmet tea a problematic product to prepare, our ingenuiTEA teapot may just be the most ideal example to the contrary.”

Caffé Botanica offers three varieties all made with gourmet, 100% certified organic Arabica beans. Caffé Botanica Strength is a great blend of coffees infused with Calcium.

Caffé Botanica Health is a special blend of organic coffees infused with Echinacea, a wildflower of the central United States that has traditionally been used to promote healing and wellness. This wonderful blend of organic coffees and herbs results in a delicate, pleasantly sweet coffee with floral tones offering all the great benefits of Echinacea.

This sweet, simple, yet pleasant coffee is perfect for those who wish to eliminate caffeine from their diet.
