Get all your cravings for drinks and dessert sorted at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf this Christmas.
There’s one place to go to this season for all your sweet cravings. The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s Christmas specials are always worth looking forward to, whether you’re angling for a holidaythemed drink or some festive bites. This year, new festive beverages join long-time favourites like the Red Velvet Cocoa and Peppermint Mocha drinks. Here’s a look at what the coffee chain’s got for you this Christmas!
Classic Log Cake
HAVE SOME CAKE
If you need cakes for holiday parties, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf has a selection of crowd-pleasers for any festive occasion. The Classic Log Cake ($49 for 1.2kg) is a delectable whirl of chocolate mousse and vanilla-flavoured Swiss roll coated in dark chocolate ganache. Otherwise, have a white Christmas in the form of the Blackberry White Chocolate Meringue ($68 for 2.3kg), a sponge cake with blackberry and white chocolate filling.

TAKE A SWIG
Choose from one of four festive drinks now available on the seasonal menu. The Double Chocolate Strawberry Ice Blended (small, $7.60) or Latte (small, $7.20) is a brand-new drink that’s an interpretation of the delicious indulgence of double chocolate and sweet strawberries.
Winter Dream Tea Latte
Other options are holiday standards like the comforting Winter Dream Tea Latte (small, $6), a fragrant blend of spices, tea and vanilla powder; Red Velvet Ice Blended (small, $7.40), a creamy take on the flavours of a red velvet cake; and the decadent and refreshing Peppermint Mocha (small, $7.20).

Salted Caramel Cheesecake
Nutty Fruit Cake
For palates that prefer less sweetness, consider the Salted Caramel Cheesecake ($65 for 2.2kg), a sweet-andsalty twist on The Coffee Bean’s best-selling Chicago Cheesecake; or the Nutty Fruit Cake ($55 for 1.9kg), a zesty treat packed with dried fruit, raisins, walnuts and glazed cherries.
Minty Chocolate Tart
Almond Linzer Tart
On the off-chance you’ve maxed out on cakes, try either of two holiday tarts: Minty Chocolate ($55 for 1.7kg) and Almond Linzer ($55 for 1.5kg). The former is a classic chocolate and peppermint combination fit for the holidays, while the latter is a crumbly pastry made with almonds and raspberry jam, covered with a decorative lattice crust.
Take a break from hosting and bring a gift to a party! These festive classics are always sure hits with friends and loved ones who have a sweet tooth. Pastries like Christmas Stollen ($49 for 750g) and Panettone ($52 for 1.5kg) are timetested and widely loved for their fluffy texture and for being richly filled with fruits and nuts. If you’re in a pinch – which isn’t unusual, considering how busy the holidays can be – a packet of Gingerbread Man treats (five pieces per pack, $16.90) makes an easy but thoughtful gift.
Christmas Party Pack
If the party you’re going to is a bit bigger than an intimate gathering, the Christmas Party Pack ($45 a box) and Cupcakes ($45 a box) are no-brainers. The Party Pack features mini versions of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s festive cakes, while the cupcakes come in a box of 20 with assorted flavours like red velvet and Belgian chocolate – perfect for every preference!
