If coffee isn’t your cup of tea, there’s a new shop opening in Linden Hills that might be.
From the former co-owner/co-CEO of Dunn Brothers Coffee, Chris Eilers, comes Jinx Tea, specializing crafted tea drinks. Jinx is set to open its first brick and mortar shop Thursday at 4503 France Ave. S. in Minneapolis following its success as a food truck launched last year.
Eilers and his wife Jennifer Wills, who describes herself as “tea-obsessed and health-conscious,” teamed up with “drinksmith” Nate Uri, owner and crafter of Minneapolis-based Prohibition Kombucha, to create a menu full of bubble, classic, and non-alcoholic cocktail-inspired teas, served hot or cold, fizzy or still. Flavors range from simple chamomile to “Mojito,” made with Qilan oolong tea, fresh mint, and lime.
