Kuala Lumpur, 26 July 2021 – Hot and sunny days are the norm in this part of the world (and even more so with this current hot spell!) so it’s always a great time to quench your thirst with an ice-cold drink. With that in mind, who better to serve it up than The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® (CB&TL), home of the original Ice Blended®?
This month, celebrating the cool vibes of summer, CB&TL provides a fresh and colourful respite from the mundane WFH (work-from-home) life with two brand-new Ice Blended® beverages – refreshing Matcha Strawberry, which can also be enjoyed as a hot or cold latte, and the decadent Matcha Hazelnut, also available as a hot tea latte. Served with the sweet-and-tart The Pink Duchess and luscious The Green Emperor cakes, these latest offerings from CB&TL usher in the beauty of summer with bright pink, green and brown hues not unlike the summers in more temperate climates.
“Enjoying these appetizing summer treats is all about feeding the senses, offering some joy despite these trying times. Simple pleasures like the aroma of freshly brewed coffee or the creamy sweet taste of a slice of cake can help us grab a few minutes of relaxation or revive our spirits, and that’s something all of us could benefit from during these months of isolation and restrictions,” said Fiona Rodrigues, Head of Sales & Marketing, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® Malaysia. “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 that celebrate all things summer.”
From the cheery colours to the fresh and healthy flavours of the season, put your tastebuds to the test with the bright and delicious Poppin’ Summer Salad, with cape gooseberries, baby spinach and crispy popcorn chicken drizzled with a refreshing citrus dressing – it’s summer in a mouthful! For more savoury goodness, grab some wholesome goodness with the cheesy Egg Drop Sandwich or enjoy the heat of summer with the hot Spicy Chicken Bagel Bun.
