THE Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s (CB&TL) new Jaffa Orange Chocolate Ice Blended drink makes a perfect treat when spending quality time with family and friends this Chinese New Year.
The creamy blend of tangy orange whipped cream and cookie crumbs, finished with a sweet dark chocolate drizzle is priced at RM17 (small) and RM18.50 (regular).
For a decadent touch, go for the Golden Prosperity cake, a beautifully decorated work of art that conceals an interior of yuzu, lemon and coconut cream.
It is available in three options — RM13.95 per slice, RM55 for a petite size and RM139.90 for a whole cake.
“At The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, we believe that traditions are important.
“These new treats are just little ways for us to remember that no matter the changing circumstances, it is comforting to know that our collective history and culture is still alive, ” said CB&TL Malaysia marketing and development director Fiona Rodrigues.
“We value quality that is timeless, including quality in time spent with family and friends, and for us at CB&TL, quality in the food and drinks we serve.
“During this festive period, we can always choose to spend time with our loved ones, whether it is face-to-face or over a phone call or video call.”
Chocolate lovers can look out for Chocolate Sunrise, a marriage of chocolate, orange and lemon in a compact and elegant serving (RM12.95 per slice, RM129.30 for a whole cake) and Chocolate BBQ Chicken Sandwich (RM20.50), a savoury blend of chicken seasoned with cocoa and spices, served with a tangy pineapple coleslaw.
For a sweet crunch, do not miss the Mookie Cookie (RM 11.90 per piece) — an adorable butter biscuit crafted in the shape of an ox.
A new drink available during the festive season is the Karigane Houjicha (RM9.60 per cup, RM12.50 per pot or RM55 per tin of 20 bags).
All of these are available in-store, and selected items are available via delivery.
On Feb 18, the seventh day of the lunar new year, customers who buy any sliced cake to celebrate “everyone’s birthday” will get a free small cup of Today’s Brew or Gibraltar Americano (hot/iced).
CB&TL’s festive menu is available until early March, or while stocks last.
