Seeking a little spark of holiday joy? The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® (CB&TL) has just what you need, a little trip into the fantasy world of Alice in Wonderland with inspired treats! As pretty to look at as they are delicious to eat, take this chance to escape the boring and mundane by celebrating the wonder and beauty of a healthy imagination.
“The holiday season always calls for something special, and this year more than others, it feels like we need a little escape from the real world. To help us celebrate, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® is very pleased to share our festive menu, with treats big and small that cater to gatherings of any size,” said Fiona Rodrigues, Director of Marketing & Development, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® Malaysia.
Curate a personalised celebration with Winter Wonderland (RM250.00 for 3kg) as the natural centrepiece for any gathering, with its intricate, handcrafted gingerbread detail and delicate frosting on a delicious base of chocolate fudge. To complete the setting, choose from Hatter’s Winter Log (RM 13.95 per slice, RM139.90 for a whole cake) with its luscious chocolate mousse and ganache, Cheshire’s Cherry Bundt (RM 8.90 per slice, RM52.00 for a loaf), stuffed with cherries, lemon and butter cream, or Stollen of Hearts (RM 6.90 per slice, RM48.00 for a loaf) with its hearty mix of Swiss dark chocolate, almonds and hazelnuts!
Of course, a visit to Wonderland would not be complete without The Red Queen (RM12.95 each), a luscious pastry filled with caramel, coffee and chocolate mousse concealed under a rich red crust of almond chocolate.
