B-TOWN BIZ: Infusion Tea And Coffee Opens Up On First Ave
Story & Photos by Gina Bourdage
Coffee or Tea? Now you donâ€™t have to choose.
Infusion Tea & Coffee just opened on the corner of 156th and First Ave South in Burien. They will soon be announcing their grand opening event and are welcoming customers to stop by and see their progress in its final stages.
Within the brightly-colored walls you can get some work done using their free Wi-Fi, play backgammon, checkers or chess on any of the number of boards they have throughout the shop. In the chilly summer evenings customers will be able to cozy up next to their 360-degree fireplace in large cushy chairs. The walls will be adorned with work by local artists and starting in June, they’ll feature local musicians with a slower to moderate tempo to help create a relaxing and entertaining atmosphere.
Let’s not forget the beverages! Infusion tea I learned is specially-blended flavors that are prepared in a very specific manner to create a more full flavor than an average bagged tea.
Just looking over the menu you feel a sense of international flair with options like:
- Pear Carmel Truffle
- Wild Black Berries
- Ceylon Kenilworth
- White Louts
- Orchid Oolong
- Blue Peacock
- Marrakesh Mint
- Matach Green
- Organic Dragonwell
- Spring Jasmine
- Mayan Chocolate Truffle
- Organic Yerba Mate
- And more…
There is everything from white teas to green teas, decaf and Oolong options. You can order your tea by the cup or in a full tea.
Not to overlook the other half of the caffeine confections, you can grab a cup of your favorite Stumptown brew in the Northwest-favorite espresso form, or in the French press option (thatâ€™s drip but fuller flavored and much more interesting to watch than a coffee pot).
If youâ€™re in the mood to nosh, they have you covered with pastries from Alki Bakery, along with wraps, salads, fruit and more. There are even beverage options for the younger crowd, as well as the caffeine-impaired.
