Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) May 31, 2012
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®, the oldest and largest privately-held specialty coffee and tea retailer, is giving home entertaining a whole new (tea) bag this summer with the launch of their first ever retail iced tea product, Pacific Coast Iced Tea. The 100% pure Ceylon black tea is brewed daily in-store and for the first time, also comes perfectly portioned in convenient pouches so consumers can brew a perfect pitcher for summer sipping in the comfort of home.
The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® Tea Director David De Candia sourced the premium black tea from the Bogawantalawa Tea Estate in the mountains of Sri Lanka. The hand-plucked leaves offer a woodsy aroma and sweet, crisp finish, and are prepared and portioned specifically for iced preparation. As a cut leaf tea, Pacific Coast Iced Tea yields a higher concentration of flavor that helps counterbalance the dilution that can occur with other teas served over ice.
“Medium-bodied, yet clean and refreshing on the palate, the Pacific Coast Iced Tea is ideally suited for summer and iconic BBQ dishes like grilled chicken or burgers,” said De Candia.
The Pacific Coast Iced Tea comes portioned in a 10-count pouch tea tin and is available for purchase in-store and online at http://www.coffeebean.com, and is served daily in The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® locations this summer.
