SPECIALTY BREWS
hand crafted bottles

Cold Brew or Cold Drip: The caffeine drinks of hirsute hipsters everywhere! Two amazingly delicious ways for everyone to enjoy refreshingly ice cold coffee.

Cold Brew Hipster Bottle

Cold Brew

Our special blend of East African beans is immersed in iced water and allowed to soak for 18 hours. It is then double filtered to produce a crystal clear and aromatic brew.


Swig it straight from the hipflask bottle, drink on the rocks or add a splash of moo juice.

Cold Drip Amber Bottle

Cold Drip

Water is dripped slowly through one of our featured single origin specialty coffees one drip at a time for 6 hours.


This process produces an intense, liqueur like syrupy brew best drunk neat, on the rocks, or floated on sparking mineral water.

SPECIALTY BREWS
on tap

Each week, our baristas brew micro batches of our exclusive 'on tap' drinks, then condition and keg them by hand for your drinking pleasure!

Nitro Cold Brew
NITRO COLD BREW

We begin with a blend of specialty coffee from South & Central America. Brewed at room temperature for 24 hours, then double filtered and infused with Nitrogen under high pressure in a keg. This brew is served draught style, producing a silky creamy head like a traditional stout beer.

Old Tart Lemonade
OLD TART HOMESTYLE LEMONADE

Just honest old-school style lemonade. Made by our Baristas using only lemons, a dash of sugar (so its keeps its 'tartness'), and filtered water. Kegging and conditioning with CO2 gives an effervescence to this old fashioned classic!

Cascara Ice Tea
CASCARA ICE TEA

Cascara is the flesh from the coffee cherry. Our cascara is from the Caranavi Province in Bolivia, which we cold brew for 12 hours. Our Cascara Ice Tea is a lightly sparkling, refreshing caffeinated drink, with hints of cherry, hibiscus and red wine tannin.

ARTISAN TEAS

Lemongrass Ginger Tea
LEMONGRASS & GINGER

A classic blend of premium organic ginger and lemongrass from Sri Lanka. The sweet lemongrass balances out the gingery spice to create a vibrant and invigorating brew.

Peppermint Liquorice Fennel Tea
PEPPERMINT LIQUORICE FENNEL

Organic Egyptian peppermint and spicy organic fennel with elegant organic liquorice root. Serves well as a digestive, this blend is aromatic, bright, fresh and flavoursome.

Chai Tea
CHAI

We create our own chai in-house using an exotic blend of eight hand ground spices including star anise, cardamon, clove and cinnanom bark, blended with fine black tea.

THEICS REJOICE

THEIC (thë’ik) noun.
One who is addicted to the immoderate use of tea; a tea-drunkard.

From one theic to another, we believe you will both taste and appreciate the effort we put into selecting and brewing our teas.


When we serve our teas, on your tray you will see that you have been presented with a green ramekin which contains the leaf that was used in the preparation of your pot. This is so that you can savour the aromas from the brewed leaf and inspect the quality of the produce used to deliver your tea experience.


We work closely with our tea purveyor to carefully select only the finest handpicked single origin organic teas and tisanes for your enjoyment.


In preparing your pot, we control both the water temperature of the brewing water (95c for tisane, 90c for black, 75c for green) as well as steep times (from 2:30 for green, to 4:30 for black) to ensure you are presented with the perfect cup.


Tea is an experience to be savoured, a moment for quiet contemplation, relaxation from the hurly-burly of daily life, and we want to ensure you enjoy that precious moment with us.
