Peet’s Coffee and Tea is a chain of coffee shops that originated in San Francisco. This chain is like the Starbucks of San Francisco and you can find one every couple of blocks it seems. While I was on vacation in San Francisco, there was one across the road from our hotel so I tried it a couple of times.
One of their summer drinks was an iced coconut late with soy milk. This drink was good for a special treat, but I wouldn’t drink it all the time. The coconut flavour was strong and sweet. It was like a milky dessert.
They also have a line of tea coolers, which are iced tea drinks mixed with other fruit juices and flavours. I tried the jasmine lime cooler. I really enjoyed this. It had a nice strong floral jasmine flavour and a hint of tart lime after taste. This is the perfect Summer time drink.
I didn’t take a picture of it, but Peet’s also has an extensive line of loose leaf teas. I loved their selection and I had a wonderful oolong. I appreciate the fact that they offer lots of loose leaf tea because it tastes so much better than prepackaged bags.
While the coffee at Peet’s was fine, I was more impressed by their teas. Since big coffee shops like Starbucks don’t have very good tea and many speciality coffee shops lack in this department, I would definitely return for a good cup of tea.
Yes, for good tea drinks.
