Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf has unveiled their new seasonal menu for spring with some coffee drinks inspired by Mexican horchata.

The iconic So Cal-based chain is adding rice milk, cinnamon, and vanilla to their espresso or cold brew to create its own versions of the classic Mexican drink. 

The Horchata Ice Blended Drink is a cooling, refreshing cooling take on CBTL’s beloved icy espresso drinks, while the Horchata Latte is a comforting variation. Other horchata-inspired drinks currently offered at Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf are Horchata Cold Brew and Horchata Cream Cold Brew, the latter of which is topped with a cream cap. 

The concha pastry, another classic flavor of Mexico, is also currently available. A sweet bread with a cookie topping resembles a seashell, the concha has long been a ubiquitous part of Mexican bakeries. 

This seasonal menu is available until June 4 at all Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf locations in So Cal. You can find more info and a location finder here.
