Jamba Juice has decided it's time to give hot drinks a go, and today they're hoping people will hop on not only the bandwagon, but a stationary bike powering a blender to make their own free organic chai latte. From 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. today, they're setting up on the Third Street Promenade in Santa Monica to give away a free hot tea drink blended by your pedaling, and will be offering the new hot drinks in their stores (priced for a limited time at $2). Jamba's CEO says what they're serving up is a "breakthrough, " and that "building on the spin of the blender and taking it from cold smoothies to hot beverages is something that hasn’t been done before." On the new hot bevs menu: Three tea lattes (Original Spiced, Green, and Chocolate), Hot Chocolate, and a selection of whole leaf teas.
