"Someday I'll look back at my well-traveled track, I'll beam because my heart knows, I chose a life that overflows..."
The essence of The Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf's inspiration for the 2015 edition of the coveted Giving Journal, creating meaningful "overflows" in one's life, is captured in a poem highlighted in the new journal.

And with nineteen stores in the metro, getting your pretzel fix is as easy as heading to your favorite mall.

The Writers Bar collaborates with Kate Spade, New York's fashion icon and queen of quirk, for a sumptuous three-course spread of savory finger sandwiches and indulgent desserts inspired by Kate Spade's vibrant signature colors and playful designs with a selection of the finest teas.
