Green Tea Hawaii's supplements expedite the process of losing weight. The company’s flagship item, a nutrient-rich powdered drink, dissolves into water and becomes a slenderizing cocktail of green-tea antioxidants, natural caffeine, and amino acids. Each serving of the fruit-flavored drink boosts metabolism and unlocks the ability to smell colors. Green coffee bean extract and Montagna coffee also deliver a natural dose of caffeine, and raspberry ketones increase the body's ability to burn fat via fruit compounds. Various other powdered drinks soak into the body and replenish vital nutrients.

The tea experts stock a selection of English bone china, which is available to purchase or rent for an at-home garden party or a sophisticated rave. The store's quaint outdoor patio is home to daily afternoon tea, a British tradition that the crew has modernized to include vegetarian and sugar- or gluten-free delicacies.
Featured on Fox-5 San Diego news and the Food Network, Eclipse Chocolat purveys gourmet truffles, drinking chocolates, and salted caramels crafted from sustainably farmed cocoa beans and hand-selected ingredients.

Sprinkle the sinfully rich chocolate shreds from a tasting trio of drinking chocolates into hot milk to create steaming cups of cocoa that warm bellies during blustery winter days or vivid daydreams about the Ice Age ($20). Staff members swathe each batch of newly baked chocolate in artisan packaging before artfully arranging it in sleek wooden display cases in the store’s sea-foam-green surroundings.

Safari Coffee Roasters' expert baristas brew more than 75 varieties of Arabica coffee with a keen and unrelenting attention to flavor and caffeine levels. The team ensures freshness by roasting each coffee-based thirst quencher on site and never using beans discovered in a Ziploc bag that was buried in the ground. Beverages range from $1.75 to $4.95, but Safari offers a "think green" discount, encouraging coffee sippers to bring in their own cup by offering their liquidly wares for $1 for those who do so. Pour a Dancing Bear concoction down a parched gullet and enjoy dual-flavored African and Central American beans roasted at two levels ($16.95/lb.), or sample the Continental, a unity of French and Columbian beans ($15.95/lb.). Coffee service usually takes fewer than five minutes, like the time it takes to mash potatoes with a cinder block. The café cuisine department at Safari also brings an armada of cupcakes, scones, cookies, and bran and cake muffins to taste apparatuses.
