CBTL's Passion Guava

     Guavas are here! It's been a very long time since I last ate guava. I think it's more than seven (7) years already. We normally eat guava when I was still in my hometown, which is in Iloilo. Oh I just miss my childhood years! Good thing that The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf (CBTL) brought us this new line of drink that has guava on it!

     I was fortunate enough to be invited by CBTL to visit their Open House (March, 17, 2013) for me to try out their latest drinks -  Passion Guava Fru-Tea and Passion Guava Tea Latte - for free!
     I did went to their Open House and I enjoyed it! What I tried out was their Passion Guava Tea Latte and I find it great. The flavor is a mixture of guava and CBTL goodness... and that alone is a reason to love. I partnered it out with Blueberry Muffin and the two did perfectly blend together. 
     I don't really need to invite you to try it out. But, if you really want something to drink, which is healthy... then go for it. I researched about the benefits of guava and I found a lot! Below is an excerpt from an article published in unp.me:
