Starbucks has been on a roll these past few months. Last fall they introduced the new Toasted Graham Latte, for Halloween they brought us the Frappula, and cupid shot us in the butt when we took our first look at the Molten Chocolate Latte, a special Valentine’s Day hangover cure. They even announced a “Super Starbucks” was in the works. Seriously, what more could Starbs do to make us love them? They’ve already given us so much.
And they keep on giving.
I am here today to introduce the newest of the holy Starbucks menu, the Smoked Butterscotch Latte and Teavana Citrus Green Tea Latte. Both beverages were inspired by flavors available at the Starbucks Reserve Roastery and Tasting Room in Seattle. No wonder they’re so sleepless there — it must be all the caffeine. Here’s how Starbucks describes their new concoctions, available starting today.
[The] Smoked Butterscotch Latte combines espresso with steamed milk and smoked butterscotch sauce, finished with a sprinkling of smoky butterscotch topping…The smoky flavor balances the subtle sweetness of the butterscotch. It acts as a savory ingredient that enhances the coffee.
[The] Teavana Citrus Green Tea Latte is made with shade-grown, micro-ground full leaf green tea and steamed milk, sweetened with citrus mint syrup, and finished with lemon essence topping. [It’s] a sweet, creamy, lemony variation of the classic green tea latte.
BRB, I’m making a Starbucks run..
