The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf Open House

Went to Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf Trinoma for the Open House. The store is launching two new Fruit Teas: Pomegranate Fru-Tea and Lemon Zest Fru-tea. Was quite surprised that the store is not that crowded.. hey, the store is giving away free drinks, where are the mall rats? Alright traffic says it all.. People are more excited about the Pacquiao - Clottey fight than these Fru-teas.. Fine.

I got the Pomegranate Ice Blended and I am not disappointed. It is a perfect blend of sweetness and sourness. They should put this on their regular menu. It is the exact opposite of the other Blueberry Pomegranate drink they offered some few years ago (tasted like Taro).

Wish I could find time to upload the pics I have taken using my eTouch Phone.

Which reminds me, Starbucks is now offering whole leaf teas. I know I shouldn't blog about this, I don't want to promote a copycat - (bleh), but if real tea drinkers are looking for whole leaf teas, go to the nearest Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf store. Love the variety of loose leaf teas!
