Beginning Monday, May 18, through Sunday, August 30, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf, invites coffee and customers to ‘Find Your Flavor’ with new and returning ways to customize the Original Ice Blended drink through the summer. Fans can upgrade any Ice Blended drink with several options, such as adding in an Italian-inspired Affogato (an espresso shot pour over); Cookies (blending cookie sandwich pieces); Ultimate (Chocolate Espresso Beans), and Extreme (double the coffee).

“We invented the Original Ice Blended drink in the late ‘80s and started a nationwide craze,” says Gloria Reardon, director of marketing. “This summer, we’re adding new ways Ice Blended drink aficionados can mix and match specialty add-ins and modifiers to craft new variations of this classic beverage. It’s a fun way to enjoy a warm weather treat and make it your own.”

Customers can also start the morning off with The Coffee Bean & Tea LeafWhole Grain Cranberry Breakfast Bar. Whole grain oats are combined with dried cranberries, sliced almonds, flax seeds, and a hit of honey for a chewy fruit and oatmeal snack to start the day.
