Second Spring

The #PaletteForYourPalate Tea Cocktail Second Spring is Bartender Todd Zimmerman’s creation, inspired by TEALEAVES Organic Peppermint + Pantone 290C + Mood: Refreshed.

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 Todd Zimmerman, Bartender at Four Seasons Hotel Vancouver:


“The name Second Spring comes from Albert Camus. He muses that, ‘Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.’ It was a perfect fit for this autumnal cocktail, with its blue tones, floral ingredients and fresh taste from Organic Peppermint.”
