Cafe Asia 2013 - Tea Wands by Tea Ideas

The culture of coffee and tea consumption is well-ingrained in the everyday lives of consumers in every part of the world. With Asia’s rising affluence and demand for specialty and premium coffee and tea products, Café Asia 2013 and the International Coffee & Tea Industry Expo, is set to be platform to further the growth and development of the coffee trade and industry around the region.

Cafe Asia 2013 - Tea Wands

Tea connoisseurs who visit the exhibition would fall in love with this latest innovation of the “Tea Wands” by Tea-ideas, which work as a strainer and a stirrer. The flavoured tea leaves from various origins of India are hygienically packed in into an easy to use wand type infuser, made out of aluminium foil.

Just drop the Tea Stick into a cup of hot water and stir occasionally. After a few minutes, a great cup of tea is ready to be served. Imagine the convenience of brewing your favourite premium leaf tea, in a cup on your office desk. Unlike tea bags, these Tea Sticks do not collapse and compress when steeped in water, allowing tea leaves the desired space to uncurl and release delicate flavours and aromas.

Cafe Asia 2013 - Chaitime

You should also check out the authentic chai that is offered by Chaitime. Chai is a flavoured tea based beverage that is brewed using black tea with a mixture of aromatic masala. The tea is processed using the Crush, Tear and Curl method and brewed with modified espresso machine. Its unique taste of Lemongrass Chai Latte refreshes and revitalises the body with its uplifting blend of lemongrass and Assam black tea with end notes of fresh ginger.
