Gasolina Cafe opened its doors March 1st of this year, though the idea is something that’s been percolating between John and I for quite some time.
Incorporating great tea into our menu was never a question. The question was how to develop a legitimate tea program that accurately represents what we want to offer our customers. Enter Art of Tea. They showed up while we were still building out, brought the goods, and amongst the sawdust and dirt walked us through their product line as we did a tasting. When we had that initial tasting, there was no question whatsoever that the tea is of a significant and thoughtful caliber. Then, when Art of Tea expressed a willingness to not only have us serve their tea, but actually invest their time into helping us create a program that compliments everything else we’re doing, it was a very simple decision.
