The poor "Tea Leaf" gets no respect! Forced to try to drum up awareness of his plight outside a Santa Monica Boulevard Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf location, this hard-working, but under-appreciated, other half of the national beverage chain's drink offerings, resorts to some good old fashioned brawling when his Ice Blended rival steals his sign. "Drink some tea!" he proclaims to passers-by on foot and in cars. While this isn't the kind of costumed man-on-man action West Hollywood is known for (and probably not the first sidewalk brawl about drinks) this silly little (staged) video is a fun reminder to enjoy the TL side of CBTL. Of course, now that our weather has turned to the hot side, maybe make your tea drink an iced one. Just no punching the guy in front of you buying a coffee, okay?
