few years ago Starbucks tried (and failed) to introduce rooibos—a red, earthy South African tea—to western palates. Perhaps if it had known about the red crema at Crema Café, it wouldn’t have even bothered.

A generous sprinkling of organic cinnamon adds the perfect touch of sweetness to this nutty-tasting concoction. It also has antioxidant properties that are said to keep complexions clear. Divon
