The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf @ Singapore – Jingle bells..Jingle bells…
Christmas is the perfect time for giving and gatherings, the joyous moment is sort of incomplete without some sweet treats to munch on at gatherings! We are fortunate to be invited by The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf (CBTL) to try out their range of Christmas sweet treats, Yes! Which girl can resist those adorable and pretty sweet pastries?
For all Coffee drinkers, Christmas also brings about another good news – Christmas edition drinks for the limited period only.
(Left (A), Middle (B), Right (C))
Dark Chocolate Hazelnut Truffle (A)
A relatively light drink that you won’t get sick of, the dark chocolate, hazelnut and truffle were not very prominent.
Double Chocolate Peppermint Mocha Latte (B)
The drink was very rich of chocolate (in a good way!) with a tinge of peppermint on the side, this was my favourite out of the three.
Winter Dream Tea Latte (C)
It’s actually peppermint stick latte, and since this was a blind taste test, I thought it was diluted milk tea. Only a rare few liked this drink and some even found it weird, so this is for the adventurous souls!
On top of these 4 drinks, they also have their all-time favourite Red Velvet Hot Cocoa which we sadly weren’t given a chance to try ):
CBTL offers a huge range of Christmas treats for you to choose from, and here’s the list:
Classic Log Cake (1.3KG Retail Price (RP) – $49, Online – $39) (600g $35)

Of course, Christmas is incomplete without some log cake decorating! CBTL broke all of us bloggers into groups of 4 and gave us a huge task at the end of the food tasting session – to decorate the mini log cake with the best of our abilities and the best decorated log cake that wins (by vote) gets to walk away with CBTL’s coffee machine!
Needless to say we were all hard at work, and after much stressing out since I have zero artistic bones in my body, I was extremely thankful to have brought artistic coffee connoisseur Rachel to the event and be paired with the pretty blogger Karen Ng who suggested doing a rainbow on the top which led to us winning the prize…)
Yes we won!! Here’s a picture of us holding the masterpiece:
Thankful for CBTL once again for hosting the event and Belle Lam for the invite!
