If you’ve been to Marie Catrib’s, you may have noticed Global Infusion in the cute little strip mall across the street on Diamond. In all these years, I’d never been inside!
Until just the other day. It was a very cold day and Mumra and I were out running errands. We stopped in at Global Infusion to warm up with a hot beverage.
There are plenty of options on the drink menu, including organic fair trade coffee, and Grand Rapids-made kombucha by Bloom Ferments & Hop Soda by Proper Soda.
There’s also a wall of shelves filled with jars of various flavors of tea – more than I can list here, this is only about half!
Since Mumra is a huge fan of quickly ordering before I even have a chance to read the menu, I just ordered whatever she did: the Red Blush Chai with almond milk. It was actually kind of spicy and not too sweet, great for the cold weather.
I tried this fermented tea on my second visit, it has a nice smoky flavor.
They have baked goods from Marie’s available, as well as lots and lots of chocolates (some of which are vegan). And that’s not all…
They also have TONS of fair trade merchandise, so it’s a great place for gift-buying or just treating yourself! Check out the “A Featured Supplier” section of their website to see how your purchase can help people around the world.
