Zhi Tea Launches Food Menu with Local Faire

AUSTIN, TX – (May 14, 2012) – Zhi Tea, Austin’s go-to for premium organic tea, launches a new menu with offerings from Texas grocers, bakeries, and arms. Curated to complement Zhi’s extensive tea collection, the menu features organic fruit from Greenling, cheese plates from Pure Luck Farm and Dairy, Texas pecans from Rio Grande Organics, Grandma’s Hummus, local handmade treats from The Chocolate Makers Studio, and selections from Rockstar Bagels.

“We based the new menu on customer requests we’ve gathered over the years and our own snacking styles. For this petite menu, we chose healthy, simple, yet elegant plates to complement our teas. We’re happy to suggest a plate that pairs perfectly with your tea selection and vice versa,” said Jeffrey Lorien, CEO of Zhi Tea.

The addition of small plates and a la carte menu items to Zhi Tea’s offerings transforms the East Austin tasting room into a bona fide zen cafe, where patrons can enjoy a freshly brewed cup of hot or iced tea along with their favorite local faire.

“We are so looking forward to sharing the new selections with our customers,” said Jessica Evans, wholesale manager for Zhi Tea. “It’s the perfect addition to our comprehensive tea list and invites visitors to stay a while and truly experience Zhi.”

Zhi Tea is a homegrown Austin company that focuses on bringing the highest quality, organic, and Fair Trade teas to customers near and far, both online and at the retail location on Bolm Road. All of Zhi’s teas are hand-picked and processed in small batches, for artisanal quality on every brew.
