Happy.me mixology comes to Grove Mall
Jan and Jay Roode invented the ME character, as the face of the Happy.Me brand. ME. is an average Joe, who is happy and wholly unapologetic to just be himself – imperfections and all. He rocks to legends like Bob Dylan, Janis Joplin and Elvis. Think Gary Larson’s Far Side and Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy and you’ve got some idea of ME’s reading preferences (yes, a mascot who reads!) as well as his sense of humour. “We love quirky humour, adventure, extraordinary people and places,” said Jan and Jay, who spend their spare-time flying through Africa in their light aircraft, creating aerial photographic artwork that have been published by magazines like National Geographic. They’re equally passionate about their dislikes: “We dislike mediocrity, settling for the average, being plugged in”. So with such expressive thoughts on life, the universe and everything else … Jan and Jay created their own recipes for their favourite drinks. “We first tried fusion tea in Hong Kong, and it was one of the most delicious drinks we had ever tasted,” said Jan. Far from settling for what the rest of the world offers, they took fusion tea to the next level. As Jan explained “It started with a dream, a dream to create the world’s best beverage company. We spent three years travelling from the remote coffee regions of South America to the exotic tea plantations of the East to find the best beverages these cultures have to offer. We tried and tested hundreds of drinks, trained with Tea Masters of the East and meticulously sourced the best ingredients from all over the world to finally create what is today the Happy.Me menu”.
Happy.Me is the next generation in beverages. This hugely successful brand offers a unique blend of fresh iced teas, funky fusion teas, exotic milk teas, decadent chocolate creations, exceptional coffees, smoothies and plenty of yummy edibles too. Happy.Me is the definitive non-alcoholic, healthy beverage and food destination. Said the duo, “At Happy.Me there is something for everyone with flavours like fresh iced strawberry & pomegranate tea, packed with delicious strawberry popping pearls, passion-fruit and litchi jasmine iced tea with nata de coco; wicked treats like Oreo & Cream chocolate or a Moroccan inspired rose latte, the choices are endless. Indulge conscience-free with the fruity green teas and matcha teas which have powerful anti-oxident and anti-carcinogenic properties, caffeine free rooibos, and a range of super healthy fresh fruit and veggie juices with added ingredients such as aloe vera, coconut milk and goji berries. Yum!
