The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf® : The Giving Journal 2016

DSCF4335 (2)

Spent my saturday morning with some coffee, muffins and art at the 2015 Holiday Launch of The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf® here in Cebu for the release of their new edition of “The Giving Journal” at their CBTL branch in Ayala Center Cebu and I was lucky enough to be invited and be a part of this gathering. As a way to encourage its community to brew their best years, this journal is designed to inspire each individual to pursue their passions and find meaning and fulfillment in everyday moments, while at the same time providing them with the opportunities to give back by helping others.

It is the tradition of The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf® to give back to the community, and it has partnered with Real LIFE foundation, the Giving Journal’s beneficiary, to fulfill this tradition by supporting the educational needs of the less fortunate. To date, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® has already sponsored 38 university scholars since 2011 – giving them the chance to fulfill their dreams, help their families, and improve their prospects for a brighter future. At present, the brand is proud to share that 13 of the sponsored scholars have already graduated. Evidently, The Giving Journal is certainly not your ordinary planner; it is a gift where the joy of giving and receiving it lasts well past the holiday season.

The Giving Journal comes with 4 different colors, which made us all hard to choose! But not only did I fell in love with the journal itself but knowing the cause behind it got me motivated to live my life flavorfully and by giving back to the community in whatever way we possibly can.


Aside from the launch of their new journal, The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf® has taken upon itself the mission to spread joy in all forms, giving flavor, one cup at a time. This Christmas, it is offering its customers two special holiday flavors that make the perfect companions for celebrating the holidays. Each drink comes in two variations: an iced drink, and a warm latte.

Holiday 2015 Drinks

Fans with a sweet tooth will be happy to try the Toffee Nut flavor, which is a new addition to the menu. Inspired by traditional holiday confections, its flavor comprises of a buttery caramelized sugar with a hint of nut, paired with the richness of espresso and a sprinkle of toffee bits. In the Winter Dream Tea, a drink that has come to be anticipated and loved by the café’s patrons, rooibos and black tea are blended with sweet spices and hints of Vanilla– a beverage that is truly what holiday dreams are made of. Each drink was lovingly crafted to capture the spirit of Christmas in a cup, to be savored and enjoyed amidst the chaos of all holiday preparations.

It was indeed a fun filled morning with my fellow Cebu Fashion Bloggers as the event not only covers what CBTL has to offer but there was also a fun Watercolor Workshop hosted by Earl Tawny Hisoler!
