Nespresso co-creates the ultimate Yin-Yang recipe with BASAO to spread harmony with an exclusive coffee and tea creation
With Chinese New Year drawing near, we look forward to spending this most special time among loved ones. As families and friends shower each other with love and affection, Nespressoshares its warmest New Year wishes by crafting festive moments for everyone to enjoy. To pay homage to the New Year tradition of tea drinking while introducing an exciting, contemporary twist, Nespresso teams up with BASAO Tea to co-brew a special “Yin-Yang” mixology concept that commemorates this Lunar New Year with a perfect harmony of exceptional coffee and tea. The elevated take on this quintessential Hong Kong creation is a celebration of the simple joys of coffee and tea and the many treasured moments shared over this long-time local favourite.
Sharing the same values of innovation and creating surprising and pleasurable experiences, Nespresso and BASAO have come together to redefine the taste of “Yin-Yang” and blend a harmonious brew that will let love prosper. Through this collaboration, the new Yin-Yang highlights the beauty of coffee and tea culture and the unparalleled craftsmanship that goes into crafting each cup.
