Review: The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf : Celebrating 50 Years


I was longing for a good chat over tasty bites with my friends and this happened eventually ! Yes a lot more can happen over coffee table. Last week a few friends went to 'The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf  of MG 1, Bangalore. Located  centrally this sure has an edge over other coffee  outlets. We made ourselves comfortable at a table of 8. Coffee lovers don't settle down for the ordinary choices, in fact they are always on a look out for varieties of coffee.
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf (CBTL), founded in 1963 by Herbert B.Hyman in Los Angeles, has been a pioneer in bringing gourment coffees and teas to the global connoisseur. 

This year is significant as the brand celebrates 50 years of heritage and passion of delighting its patrons worldwide. An exclusive special anniversary offer is going on where they will gratify loyal patrons across the globe for their continued love and support over the years. The brand has just completed 5 successful years in India.

To enhance the celebrations, a new food menu with variety of gourmet and healthy eating options has also been introduced. From all day breakfast , gourmet bites, fresh bakes, main course to desserts, the new Coffee Bean menu is a foodie's delight offering novel options like Chilly Cheese Baguette, Pizza Curl, silky Chocolate Mousse to name a few.  

 What fascinated me was the Whole Leaf Tea Bags. Through these small pouches you can enjoy the finest teas in the world in convenient single-serving tea bags. 

The unique pyramid shape of the bag allows the whole two leaves and a bud to fully expand, providing maximum flavor infusion and the same richness and aroma you savor when brewing our premium tea in an infuser or teapot. The aroma is unmatchable !! Some of the exotic flavors are Tropical Passion, Pomegranate Blueberry, Vanilla Ceylon etc. 

Whole leaf tea allows the tea leaves to retain their natural properties resulting in the most flavoured cup of tea possible. During the steeping process, the leaves unfurl, releasing their flavor into the water. So they truly believe in serving their customer the most extraordinary collection of unique, handpicked, premium whole leaf tea.

We ordered few items and each one was superb in taste. Below are the pictures of item we had there.
Coffee Free Ice Blended

Oats & Cranberry Bar

Spaghetti Roast chicken & Pesto Cream
Boston Nut Brownie
Would particularly like to express my gratitude to Mr. Zaheer Ahmed to provide us a comprehensive view of CBTL where we freely kept on clicking pics and asking questions. Also thanks to Anamika for arranging this wonderful event.
