Dreams of Sunset

The #PaletteForYourPalate Tea Cocktail Dreams of Sunset is Tealeaves ICON and Assistant Outlet Manager Herbert Yuen’s creation, inspired by TEALEAVES Organic Vanilla Rooibos + Pantone 714C + Mood: Imaginative.

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 Herbert Yuen, Assistant Outlet Manager at Andaz West Hollywood:


“When the Organic Vanilla Rooibos cocktail is first poured into the glass, everything is a single orange color. Once the drink settles and separates, the top layer of foam and egg white makes me think of cloud nine, triggering my imagination.”
