Benzaiten

The #PaletteForYourPalate Tea Cocktail Benzaiten is Lead Mixologist Grant Sceney’s creation, inspired by TEALEAVES Organic Long Life Green + Pantone 349C + Mood: Enlightened.

TEALEAVES’ and Pantone Color Institute’s #PaletteForYourPalate is a first-of-its-kind collaboration where 10 iconic tea blends serve as muse to over 30 world-class chefs and mixologists.

Notes from Grant Sceney, Lead Mixologist at Fairmont Pacific Rim:


“I wanted to achieve that Pantone color without using any artificial coloring, because that completely takes away from the other two components of the cocktail— the subtlety of Organic Long Life Green and the mood of Enlightenment.”
