Denver-based Garbanzo Mediterranean Grill has added enhancements to its signature fresh brewed iced tea blends. All teas are now blended with organic ingredients and two are 100-percent organic. The chain also has a new tea, Lemongrass Ginger Green Iced Tea, on the menu.
The 100-percent organic iced tea blend, made with organic lemongrass, ginger, green tea and water, is replacing the former Quince Quencher Iced Tea. The company's original Classic Black Iced Tea is now also 100-percent organic. Additionally, the brewed Pomegranate Crisp Iced Tea and Hibiscus Mango Iced Tea Fusion have been reblended to incorporate organic ingredients.
"Our new organic iced tea blends not only deliver the same refreshing taste our guests know and love, they also fall in line with our green initiative incorporating more natural and organic items into our menu," Alon Mor, Garbanzo founder, president and CEO, said in a company press release. "As Garbanzo continues to grow, our green program will grow with it fulfilling our goal of creating one of the healthiest fast casual concepts available."
Garbanzo partnered with Teatulia Organic Teas to exclusively produce the new and organic iced tea blends. The Teatulia tea garden does not use pesticides, unnatural irrigation or machinery, cultivating their teas with the "natural harvest" method, which allows the land to thrive.
