First we swapped our pain au chocolates for super scrambled eggs tomato and spinach, now our creamy, calorie laden frappuccinos for Matcha Tea Lattes. One of three new Teavana™Tea Lattes brewing at Starbucks this spring.
Whether it’s to refuel in the morning, recharge in the afternoon, or to reward yourself with a tea time treat, they can also be personalised by choosing dairy alternatives…
Rooibos Tea Latte
Sourced from South Africa, the Rooibos blend is a naturally caffeine-free herbal tea, featuring a vanilla, honey-like aroma, with hints of caramel and malt for a slight sweetness. This Tea Latte is served pure, containing zero added sugar – but can be enjoyed sweetened by adding syrup.
Matcha Tea Latte
Made from three blends of matcha from Japan, China and Korea, the Matcha Latte offers subtle floral notes and a rich natural taste, with a sweet lingering finish. Using pure matcha blend – also offered over ice – this drink is great with almond as a dairy alternative, containing zero added sugar and a 100% calorie reduction*.
Red Apple Rooibos Tea Latte (Limited Time Only)
The Red Apple Rooibos Tea Latte is available for limited-time only, and is also caffeine-free. A combination of Red Apple syrup and a delicate Apple Blossom dust complements this blend, creating a slightly sweeter and fruity version of the Rooibos Tea Latte. The seasonal apple flavour is enhanced by freeze-dried apples, sprinkled on top of the latte as ‘Red Apple dust’– creating the perfect drink for a spring-time Instagram photo.
