Q&A with Lee Pomerantz, Co-Owner

Are there any dishes on the menu you consider to be a hidden gem?not necessarily the most popular, but surprisingly delicious?

Our custom-blended teas are amazing, and our customers consistently tell us our drinks are far better than what the big chain stores offer.

In your own words, how would you describe your menu?

We carry the largest collection of custom-blended loose-leaf teas (more than 150 varieties) in Indiana, along with an amazing selection of specialty coffees from around the world (currently 65 types and growing). Our extensive hot and cold drink menu features everything you'd expect in a coffee shop and more. We now feature the Dr. Smoothie line of 100 percent all-natural, organic smoothies. Our bakery case features yummy treats from local bakers to complement your favorite beverage.

Thanks to Sweet Simpliciteas, it's possible to have your cake and drink it, too. The loose-leaf tea shop combines the two most important meals of the day?dessert and afternoon tea with indulgent blends. With indulgent blends, there's no need to feel guilty about calories or decide which fork to use when you can simply sip on a cup of chocolate-chip chai (featuring actual chocolate chips) or caramel-cake rooibos.

Blackberry tart. Banana-nut bread. Cinnamon-twist danish. They?re not decadent treats in a glass display case at the local bakery, but intoxicating aromas and robust flavors found at La Crema Coffee Company. Owned by Melissa and Dan Flohn, La Crema takes 100% Colombian coffee beans and transforms them into three dozen unique breakfast, afternoon, and dessert flavors such as chocolate raspberry, amaretto truffle, and bananas foster. For purists, the company imports unflavored blends from Central and South America, Indonesia, and Africa. It even vends a selection of non-coffee beverages, as well as hand-beaded coffee scoops and accessories for measuring coffee grounds or spooning them over breakfast cereal.
