Hot and sunny days are the norm in this part of the world, so it’s always a great time to quench your thirst with an ice-cold drink.
The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf (CB&TL) is providing a fresh and colourful respite from the mundane work-from-home life with two new ice-blended beverages — refreshing Matcha Strawberry, which can be enjoyed as a hot or cold latte, and the decadent Matcha Hazelnut, also available as a hot tea latte.
Prices range from RM16.40 to RM18.80.
“Enjoying these appetising summer treats is all about feeding the senses, offering some joy despite these trying times,” said CB&TL Malaysia sales and marketing head Fiona Rodrigues.
Customers can pair their drinks with one of the following cakes:
> The Pink Duchess, featuring sweet juicy strawberries combined with creamy white chocolate and a subtle hint of black pepper.
> The Green Emperor, a luscious pairing of matcha, adzuki red beans and black sesame.
> The Salted Mocha Baron, decadent layers of salted mocha, crunchy cookies and cream cheese.
> Cakesicle which is cake on a stick and only available at selected stores.
These latest treats consists of bright pink, green and brown hues, not unlike the summers in temperate climates.
Rodrigues said the simple pleasures like the aroma of freshly brewed coffee or the creamy sweet taste of a slice of cake could help us grab a few minutes of relaxation or revive our spirits.
“That’s something all of us could benefit from during these months of isolation and restrictions.
“In such a challenging time, we hope to give you that little spark of goodness that brightens your day and encourages you with hope, while keeping you going with lovely delicacies,” she said.
For all-day meals and snacks, grab the Spicy Chicken Bagel Bun featuring curry chicken baked in a bagel bun.
Another option is the Salmon and Mushroom Pizza with smoked salmon, mushrooms and olives topped with parmesan cheese.
The Poppin’ Summer Salad with cape gooseberries, baby spinach and crispy popcorn chicken drizzled with a refreshing citrus dressing highlights the fresh and healthy flavours of the season.
Available until Aug 14, CB&TL’s summer menu can be purchased via takeaway, Leaf With Me pickup platform and delivery services.
