The teaBOT team describes its creation, via website, as:
“…robotic kiosks that allow users to order a custom cup of loose-leaf tea and share their blends at the touch of a button. Customers control features on the touch screen or their smartphone and walk away with a personalized cup of tea in under a minute.”
The company’s “Find a teaBOT” page specifies two California locations. Years have passed since I first learned about teaBOT’s existence via a news report. Last month I decided to go check it out – the only one in Los Angeles – at a 365 by Whole Foods. The barista who must also be the store’s tea sommelier indicated that the machine was removed quite a while ago.
The store should have kept its teaBOT. Flippy in Pasadena cooks burgers. Bartender robot Guillermo del Pouro prepares cocktail in Downtown Los Angeles. Southern California needs a teaBOT!
This post is short because of the missing teaBOT. Maybe T Ching readers who have savored teas brewed by teaBOT would like to share thoughts and reviews.
