The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf Spotlight: Winter Dream Tea® Latte


This drink needs no introduction, but we’ll give one anyway. As many of our guests have endearingly stated, it’s like “Christmas in a mug.” Of course, they’re talking about our seasonal holiday classic, the Winter Dream Tea® Latte.


What Does the Winter Dream Tea Latte Taste Like?


Drinking a Winter Dream Tea Latte is like basking in the rich, complex aromas of the holidays. Jolts of cinnamon, honey, cloves, and vanilla blanket you in a festive warmth. It tastes like waking up on a cozy winter morning and running down the stairs to see perfectly wrapped gifts under the tree.


When you order the Winter Dream Tea Latte at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®, you can get it as a hot latte or as an iced latte.


How Is the Winter Dream Tea Latte Made?


We source this medium-bodied, caffeinated black tea from Bogawantalawa Tea Estates in Sri Lanka. Check out their website to learn more about their rich history of cultivating carbon-neutral tea.


To create our popular Winter Dream Tea Latte, we add our signature kick with our French Deluxe™ Vanilla Powder. We also sprinkle in warm spices like cloves and cinnamon to boost the tea’s festive flavor.


You can also make a steaming cup in the comfort of your own home to combat the freezing winter winds. Just order a tin of Winter Dream Tea and take your senses on a ride through the characteristically sweet rooibos and delicate black tea that gets more than a few people through this time of year.


What Goes with the Winter Dream Tea Latte?

We recommend you pair it with a delicious cranberry-orange muffin when you visit The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf®. This delectable combination accentuates the bold spices and flavors in both the drink and the pastry. You’re welcome in advance.
