THE Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf (CB&TL) is offering a spark of holiday joy with its Alice in Wonderland fantasy-inspired treats.
The Winter Wonderland makes for a natural centrepiece for any gathering, with its intricate, handcrafted gingerbread detail and delicate frosting on a chocolate fudge base.
To complete the setting, include the Hatter’s Winter Log with its luscious chocolate mousse and ganache, Cheshire’s Cherry Bundt stuffed with cherries, lemon and butter cream, or Stollen of Hearts with its hearty mix of Swiss dark chocolate, almonds and hazelnuts.
A visit to Wonderland would not be complete without The Red Queen, a luscious pastry filled with caramel, coffee and chocolate mousse concealed under a rich red crust of almond chocolate.
For more options, look no further than holiday cakes Minted Ever After concoction of dark chocolate and mint topped with cream, fresh redcurrants and rosemary, or Velveteen’s Wish red velvet cake topped with crunchy cookie bits and cheese mousse.
If it is too difficult to choose between all these tasty treats, just get Alice’s Tea Party, a selection of bite-sized treats of Hatter’s Winter Log, Jolly Breadman, Tweedle Tart and Minted Ever After.
Top-up as needed with Jolly Breadman or Once Upon A Door butter cookies.
For more holiday indulgence, enjoy the Chocolate Cookie, a combination of premium espresso and chocolate cookie notes for a decadent holiday beverage.
Try it as a Chocolate Cookie Ice Blended drink, Pure Chocolate Cookie Ice Blended drink or hot/iced Chocolate Cookie Latte.
CB&TL also welcomes the return of the ever-popular Double Chocolate Peppermint beverages, available as Double Chocolate Peppermint Ice Blended drink, Pure Double Chocolate Peppermint Ice Blended drink, hot/iced Double Chocolate Peppermint Latte and Peppermint Nitro Latte.
Best of all, children get to enjoy their own coffee-free version, as a hot/iced Double Chocolate Cocoa while tea lovers can enjoy the hot Peppermint Tea.
For a quick meal to pair with holiday beverage, order the new Black Pepper Chicken Sandwich.
In line with the season of giving, CB&TL’s popular gift tags are back with new designs, with proceeds going towards the Caring Cup initiative.
This year, the beneficiary is the Assunta Integrated Social Services programme by Assunta Hospital to help raise funds for equipment upgrades and essential supplies for their new mobile clinic.
