A Tea for All Times
I don't want to minimize the coffee greatness found at Bloom Coffee and Tea. The coffee hits different for sure, and can not enough about the level of knowledge Bloom Coffee, and Tea baristas have about their brew. But if tea is your thing, your visit to Bloom Coffee and Tea will be living rent-free in your mind for a long time because the tea is fantastic!
In the words of the Chinese team master and writer Lu Yu, “Tea tempers the spirit, harmonizes the mind, dispels lassitude and relieves fatigue, awakens the thought and prevents drowsiness." – Lu Yu, The Classic Art of Tea. Isn't that the truth? Tea has been around almost forever and has a strong place in the history of many nations. Read on for a little sip of tea history.
A Trip of Tea Through Time
To date, tea is the world's most widely consumed beverage. Experts agree that the origins of tea started in China around 2750 BC. In tea infancy, leaves were picked and boiled in water to produce a brew used primarily for medicinal purposes. It took a couple of thousand years for tea to go from therapeutic to a popular drink throughout the Chinese empire. Although popular in China, it wasn’t until Chinese merchants started to roast the leaves to prevent rotting that tea was manufactured and exported. This tea was what we now call black tea. To date, Chinese tea consumed in China remains green tea and bypasses the roasting. Next, tea became a real thing in Japan, Iran, India, Holland, and finally across the rest of Europe. Rumor has it that commercial tea growing outside of China started expanding when an undercover British botanist brought thousands of tea plants around 1840.
Today, tea remains a big business, and it's growing all the time. Although there are currently 62 countries that produce tea for commercial export, this list contains only the top ten. These ten countries are China, India, Kenya, Sri Lanka, Vietnam, Turkey, Iran, Indonesia, Argentina, and Japan (in order of production). According to tea market industry reports, 2 billion people start their day by drinking tea, 3 billion tons of tea are produced worldwide every year. In the United States, Americans consume 1.42 million pounds of tea daily. Experts worldwide report that tea consumption continues to rise, and there are currently 3,000 variations of tea.
Main Character Called Cool
If Bloom Coffee and Tea was a person, its name would be Cool. From its location nestled in one of Roseville’s upscale plazas to the sleek décor and vibe, you know you've arrived someplace super classy when you walk through the front doors. Everything from seating to signage has a minimalist boldness. To help you feel like you belong in this cool space, the menu names each item by a fun name and clearly calls itself out so you know exactly what you’re ordering but can still use its super cool name. Bloom Coffee and Tea serves Verbe Cofee from Santa Cruz, known for its bold, crisp flavor. Of equally excellent quality is the tea served here. Each individually steeped cup is made using Art of Tea. Art of Tea is a tea importer that hand blends and custom crafts the world's highest quality teas and botanicals. To serve a product purchased from Art of Tea is to serve a top-shelf product.
You have to see for yourself how beautifully curated the tea selection is at Bloom Coffee and Tea. Every offering is organic ranging from classic black to Moroccan Mint to my favorite called Endurance. Endurance is a blend of cinnamon, pu-erh, eleuthro root, goji berries, schizandra berries, nettle leaf, oat straw, and ashwagandha root (all organic). This blend is comprised of what's known as adaptogenic herbs, which are known to neutralize the effects of free radicals, oxygenating the blood, promoting circulation, and increasing stamina. It's also DELICIOUS. The caffeine-free selection leaves you wanting for nothing for those wanting a more chill feel. But wait, there's more. There's food!
