Do You Need a Granita?

This afternoon I had the chance to beat the heat and try the new Tea Granitas at The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf. The two new flavors, Pear Berry and Passion Fruit are blended concoctions of tea, fruit puree and ice. Absolutely refreshing! My personal favorite is the Passion Fruit :-)

Right now, CBTL is running a social media promotion where if come up with your "rhyme-ita" and tag #iNeedaGranita then you're entered for a chance to meet Grammy award winning artist, Zedd.

I got in on the fun with this post below


Read on to learn how you can get in on the Instagram fun!

From Monday, March 31 – Sunday, April 13The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® encourages fans and followers to get a little silly by drumming up a simple jingle rhyming with ‘Ita, such as “I need a Granita” or “Life’s a little sweeta.” Those who post an Instagram video or tweet their “iNeedagranita” rhyme – “using the hashtag #iNeedaGranita – are automatically entered into the contest.
