We all have our favorite flavors when it comes to milk tea, but how about trying something new? HI Now host Jobeth Devera is at Teapresso Bar at Aloha Tower Marketplace to get a taste of one of its newest drinks: the Brown Sugar Milk Tea.
“Here at Teapresso, all of our teas are brewed fresh,” says owner Onika Tirado. To keep things interesting, Teapresso is always coming up with new drinks. Aside from the Brown Sugar Milk Tea, there are over 20 teas to choose from.
The Teapresso Bar at Aloha Tower Marketplace is one of the company’s newest locations, which just recently opened up at the end of 2019.
“We chose this location because HPU students and staff really love Teapresso,” says Tirado. “They dorm here, they have classes here, and we wanted to give them a healthier alternative for drink options.”
You can also try an exclusive HI Now drink at any Teapresso Bar across the state! HI Now hosts Jobeth Devera and Kanoe Gibson, along with executive producer Chimaine Pouteau, created their own specialty drinks. The exclusive concoctions include Jobeth’s “Jojo Taro Coco,” Kanoe’s “K-Presso,” and Chimaine’s “Chi-Mango Passion.” Part of the proceeds from these drinks will go to help various nonprofit organizations, including the Hawaiian Humane Society, Susan G. Komen and the Boys and Girls Club of Hawaii.
