Last Saturday, Davao Bloggers was invited to The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf 2015 Holiday Launch. The event was totally jam-packed with members of Davao Bloggers that it was like a reunion party for us.
One of the event’s highlights was The Giving Journal that came in four different colors: purple, mustard yellow, Tiffany blue, and brown. The Giving Journal is not your ordinary planner. It is a planner with a cause. This journal is designed to inspire you to pursue your passions and find meaning in everyday moments, while at the same time giving you the opportunity to give back by helping others. It has always been a tradition of The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf (CBTL) to give back to the community and this time they partnered with Real LIFE Foundation as the The Giving Journal’s beneficiary- by supporting the educational needs of the less fortunate. To date, CBTL has already sponsored 38 university scholars since 2011 and currently, CBTL is proud to share that 13 of the sponsored scholars have already graduated.
Definitely, The Giving Journal is not your ordinary planner as it gives you the chance to be a part of a great cause where the joy of giving and receiving will last past the holiday season.
The event also featured Water Color Lettering workshop by Miss April San Pedro. This really got me hooked! For the longest time, I always wanted to try lettering or maybe calligraphy (ambisyosa) haha but I never had the time to buy materials and start with it. But this event just made me do it and I certainly love it!
P.S I’m happy to share that finally (just yesterday) I bought myself watercolor materials. Yehey! So expect a flooding of paintings? and lettering on my IG feeds. Hahaha as if!
Aside from the Giving Journal, another reason for you to love Christmas is the offering of the two The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf’s holiday flavors that’s just perfect for this holiday season. Each drink comes in two variations: an iced drink and a warm latte.
The two holiday flavors are the:
Toffee Nut– Its flavors comprises of a buttery caramelized sugar with a hint of nut, paired with richness of espresso and a sprinkle of toffee bits
Winter Dream Tea– The most anticipated and loved by the cafe patrons, it comprises of rooibos and black tea that are blended with sweet spices and hints of Vanilla- a beverage that is truly what holiday dreams are made of.
You can have your Giving Journal by completing 12 stamps with any regular or large CBTL beverages. Swirl Card holders are also in for a surprise! If you visit CBTL stores on November 9 and purchase any regular or large beverage, you get one (1) EXTRA Giving Journal stamp for FREE!
