The healthful Owl established temporary residency at New York City’s Javits Convention Center earlier this week during the International Restaurant & Foodservice Show of New York. The Teaologist was selected to be included in an area of the show recognized as the ” Healthy Pavilion” . The Owl was in great company, surrounded by other booths, brands, and individuals promoting the maintenance of a healthy lifestyle through food.

The Owl was thrilled to be able to impart his flavorful knowledge to the thousands of people that passed through over the course of the three day show. The Teaologist brought 10 of our most popular blends to sample, so that people could experience the flavor through all of their senses and not just by tasting. ( In case you’ve never tried the aroma and textures of the blends really bring the flavor to life.) The Owl was serving iced tea with two of his most popular blends; Coconut Chai & Berry Rooibos. The Teaologist team was so thrilled by the rave responses we received; one of the more popular being how truly refreshing our teas are!

In addition to the constant conversation about everything TEA: brewing instructions, flavor profiles, preferred temperatures, culinary possibilities, etc. Teaologist founder Jennie Ripps was on site providing daily demonstrations in the Healthy Solutions Culinary Theater. Jennie’s primary focus was to educate her audience on the function & flavor of tea, and how this is achieved in all Teaologist blends. She shared a variety of stories including our customized menus for restaurants & coffee shops, the mimicking of alcoholic beverages through tea, and the healthful benefits that Teaologist customers seek when creating their own blends. Listeners were able to sample the Owl’s infamous Bloody Maria if they were in the mood for a tea cocktail.

Outside of booth 2147 the edible options were endless. It was impossible not to indulge as meandered the sprawling aisles of food, beverages, and everything in between. In the mood for some authentic Ramen? No problem; as there was an entire section of the show devoted to Asian cuisine. Perhaps you were in the mood for an alcoholic beverage to wash down all the treats you’d been sampling. Done. All you had to do was make your way to local breweries that had relocated themselves to the Javit’s Center.
There was so many things to sample that the Owl couldn’t even begin to pick a favorite, or share with you all of the various things he savored during the show. Even with the Owl’s bird’s eye view of the building, he was often stuck in throngs of people that he had no chance but to sample whatever was in front of him. The Owl was so full by day 3 that he was certain his stomach was dragging on the ground when he flew.
The Owl and his team of teaologists met so many great people at the show, and can’t wait to share with you some of the amazing projects we are working on resulting from brand introductions at the show.
