To toast in the season here in LA though, The Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf® is featuring Fall inspired drinks and desserts on their menu from now through early November, which include their Pumpkin Ice Blended or Pumpkin Latte drinks and limited-edition pastries like mini pumpkin pie or crème filled chocolate cake. To celebrate their fall menu, reps from the specialty coffee and tea shop is giving one lucky When Tara Met Blog reader a $10 gift card.
Being from the Eastcoast, I wasn't familiar with Coffee Bean until I came out here and since I don't drink coffee I was especially intrigued by the Tea Leaf part of their name. I particularly like their loose leaf Japanese cherry tea, yum.
Anyway, back to the giveaway, to win the gift card, just post a comment here about what you love most about Fall, along with a way to contact you and I'll randomly select a winner on Tuesday Oct. 14th. In the meantime, grab a drink at Coffee Bean and enjoy it on one of their outdoor patios, under a beautiful, blue autumn sky and although you won't be able to smell burning leaves in the air like back in New York, you can at least be glad you're able to be outside in October without a coat on.
Update: The winner is Ruth, thanks to all those who entered and shared their fall favorites.
