Sponsored by Teapresso Bar
HI Now is excited to announce Teapresso Bar as our official drink sponsor and now you can order exclusive HI Now drinks on its menu. Teapresso Bar offers fresh brewed-to-order organic boba drinks along with a wide array of coffee drinks.
HI Now hosts Jobeth Devera and Kanoe Gibson, along with executive producer Chimaine Pouteau, created their own specialty Teapresso drinks. The exclusive concoctions, include Jobeth’s Jojo Taro Coco, Kanoe’s K-Presso, and Chimaine’s Chi-Mango Passion – and it’s all for a good cause. Part of the proceeds will go to help various nonprofit organizations, including The Hawaiian Humane Society, Susan G. Komen and the Boys and Girls Club of Hawaii.
When it comes to ordering your drink, you’ll find no shortage of options at Teapresso Bar. While a traditional boba tea shop offers four or five teas to choose from, Teapresso has 24 different premium-grade teas from around the world. Some of those include Asssam from India, Hojicha from Japan, Hibiscus from Jamaica, and Ceylon from Sri Lanka, to name a few.
Another thing that sets Teapresso Bar apart from the rest, is its brewed-to-order tea. According to founder and CEO, Steve Nguyen, most boba shops use pre-brewed tea. Nguyen stresses that he wanted to use natural, local ingredients instead of powders and artificial flavors. At Teapresso, you’ll find non-powder, non-GMO, gluten free, vegan and organic drinks that are a natural and healthy alternative.
Nguyen says there’s over 5,000 ways to customize your drink at Teapresso Bar. After selecting a tea, customers can add tea leaves, flavors, milk, and even choose how sweet their drink will be. They can choose from a number of add-ons like ice cream, espresso, chia seeds, a number of jellies, and of course, several different flavors and sizes of boba.
Looking for something besides coffee or boba tea? Teapresso Bar also offers slushes, frappes, smoothies, and organic lemonades.
Teapresso Bar isn’t your typical bubble tea or coffee shop. It brings a fun, inviting environment where you and friends can kick back, enjoy a drink, and even play some board games. With 16 locations across the islands, including Oahu, Maui, Kauai, and the Big Island, you’ll always find something new. Thanks to their partnership with Il Gelato, certain locations offer the sweet treat for those who want dessert with their drink of choice. Teapresso Bar is also available on the mainland, with three stores in Texas.
