Where We Are Going Today: The Cap-Soul

  • The shop can be found on the ground floor of the Red Sea Mall in Jeddah

JEDDAH: As the name suggests, The Cap-Soul coffee and tea shop offers beverages to stir the soul. The Jeddah-based outlet, akin to a grown-up version of candy land, offers a range of tea and coffee blends in capsules at palatable prices. A wide selection of teas is available not only in capsule form but also loose and in pyramid tea bags.
Loose teas are sold in colorful and attractive packaging and include citrus herbal, lime pu’erh, ginseng black, cinnamon and my favorite, honey and lime rooibos.
With a coffee for that morning boost, The Cap-Soul’s herbal teas make for a relaxing end to the day.
Biscuits and honey are served with drink purchases, and the company’s products are perfect as ready-packaged gifts.
