For inspiration, fans can sample the new Tea Granita, a premium iced tea blended beverage with delicious fruit flavors like caffeine-free Pear Berry and Passion Fruit, at a participating Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® location. In addition to the in-store promotion, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® will be rolling out their new Yumita Truck, which will be roving the streets of Los Angeles sampling Tea Granitas to curious customers to break up the afternoon doldrums.
