Antioxidants in Disguise!

Have that stuffy, coughing, aching feeling?…

Then we have a tea for you! Our new Elixo Tea is made with stone ground rooibos tea leaves, ginger, citrus, all natural honey crystals + cayenne pepper.  It also includes camu camu berries, an Amazonian fruit with very high levels of all natural Vitamin C. The antioxidants in Elixo helps fight colds while the ginger + citrus are known to boost energy…. cayenne pepper adds to the flavour but is also great for clearing sinuses! But with so many great medicinal properties, does Elixo Tea taste good?!

Elixo Tea is surprisingly delicious! The citrus base adds a bit of tartness while the sweetness from the honey crystals keeps the bitter away! The cayenne pepper is not over powering, but does add a peppery bite at the finish. Combined with a hint of ginger, the flavour will rev up the palate + energize your senses.  This tasty tea truly is a cup of antioxidants in disguise!

Visit us at Take Five Cafe + experience the tasty health benefits of Elixo Tea!

Stone Ground Tea
Our New Fall Favourite!

Everyone loves the slow days of summer. It’s a time for vacations, longer evenings + the skies are brighter. But there is something about the falling leaves of Autumn that makes us realize, we are ready to move on. More than the excitement of returning routines, the fall brings new episodes of our favourite shows, new activities to try + new fall favourites to enjoy! And Take Five Café is doing just that! Sharing new flavours!

Introducing our new Stone Ground Teas. Made from stone ground black teas from India, our teas are blended with organic cane juice + other natural ingredients to produce amazing flavours! Our classic London Fog has bergamot + all natural vanilla, while our Authentic Chai includes spices like ground ginger, cinnamon, cloves + cardamom. And why is stone ground tea so special? Because instead of soaking the leaves in hot water + removing them, the tea leaves are ground into a fine powder + whisked into your beverage for sipping. Natural nutrients in a cup – our cup of tea!

Visit us at Take Five Cafe + discover the magic of Stone Ground Tea!

Steeped Iced Tea – A Specialtea!

All things iced are refreshing when hot! But all things iced are not created equal!

Our teas are steeped fresh resulting in teas with a deep aromatic taste. They are then blended in house with other flavours to create unique + delicious iced tea recipes. Choose from Mango Iced Tea or Hibiscus Berry Iced Tea. Add lemonade for a twist or create your own spin…just ask our baristas.  And if you don’t find a version that quenches your thirst; you can always enjoy a glass of our Strawberry Lemonade. Either way, we have your thirst covered!

Visit us + grab a steeped iced tea or lemonade blended with ice. Nothing beats a refreshing cool drink on a hot day!

Staying Warm in the Cold

For most, hot chocolate brings back fond memories…

Of catching snow flakes as they fall + making snowmen 3 feet tall
With carrot noses, rocks as eyes, wearing scarves + hats of every size.
Making crunching sounds with each step, with boots too big + feet quite wet.
Of sledding down a small park hill, wearing toques + ear muffs to beat the chill.
Or eating snow when feeling hot + throwing snow balls trying not to get caught.
Sporting red rosy cheeks , dripping  nose, very cold fingers + frozen toes.
Going home to undress layer by layer, the scent of chocolate filling the air.
And seeing hot cocoa at the table + taking sips when one is able.
The taste of chocolate never gets old, a delicious way to stay warm in the cold!

We have the perfect Hot Chocolate waiting for you! With the cold snap still in the air, nothing is more delicious than savoring a rich Hot Chocolate beverage. And what’s better than a Classic Hot Chocolate? Try our Toasted Coconut Hot Chocolate.  Wherever you hope to be on cold days this season, let one of our hot chocolates transport you!

Five a Day the Easy Way

No doubt you have read, heard and learned that 5 servings of fruit + veggies per day is a healthy requirement. It’s not only a source of vitamins + minerals, but it wards off fatigue, illness, helps digestion, boosts your immunity + more.

But in this all too hectic world, who has time to calculate + prepare these 5 servings? All the washing, peeling, slicing + dicing seem like a job on its own. Sure, there are easy tips to follow: a glass of unsweetened fruit juice at breakfast, veggies + dip with your lunch, a salad at dinner or an apple to munch on during the day. But is there a better, easier way?

At Take Five Café we offer 5 a day the easy way! Try one of our delicious fruit or fruit + veggie smoothies. Each 20oz serving contains 5 servings of each depending on your flavour preference. Grab one to go in the morning before work – a quick, nutritious breakfast… or opt for one in the afternoon as a “snack”. No matter what your schedule, there are 5 servings waiting for you! No washing, peeling, slicing or dicing required!
