Artisan Room launches Coffee-Tea-Bar in collaboration with Chan Yee Jai

Can’t get through the day without your tea and coffee? Well I’ve got a treat for you! Had the pleasure of previewing Artisan Room’s newly launched “Coffee-Tea-Bar” collaboration with Century-Old Chan Yee Jai to offer handcrafted snacks paired with their coffee and tea themed concoctions. The Coffee-Tea-Bar concept is available from 5:30pm to 10pm during weekdays and 12pm to 10pm during weekends. Expect a selection of their house signature coffee and tea infused in their cocktails and mocktails curated by their barista.

Matcha Mule HK$108
Matcha Infused Vodka / Yuzu / Honey Syrup / Fresh Lime Juice / J. Gasco Ginger Beer

The verdict:
The yuzu component makes it a refreshing cocktail but don’t expect there to be a massive Matcha punch – it’s only lightly sprinkled on the top to make it more aesthetically pleasing.

Grey Clover HK$98 
Gin / Earl Grey infused Cocchi Americano Vermouth / Cacao Nibs syrup / Fresh Raspberry / Fresh Lemon Juice / Egg White / made with LØV Organic Tea, a sister brand of the renowned French Kusmi Tea

The verdict:
This one is great for the ladies – girly and has a sweet after taste. Earl grey flavor could be a tad more intense for it to stand out more.

Other cocktail selections include: Oriental Artisan (HK$108) Pu-Erh tea infused Tequila Blanco / Chen-Pi syrup / Fresh Pineapple Juice / Fresh Lime Juice / Rosemary Salt
