Starbucks Japan sweetens up a classic with Earl Grey Honey Whip Frappuccino and latte

By Jess, grape Japan

Over the holiday season, Starbucks Japan have been flexing their seasonal specialty capabilities with festive offerings like the Berry x Berry Frappuccino, and the Matcha x Matcha White Chocolate Frappuccino which will be in stores until Christmas. For the post-Christmas winter season, the ubiquitous coffee chain are exploring the possibilities contained in tea leaves to warm up their customers over the New Year.

For their latest creation, the Earl Grey Honey Whip they chose the fragrant combination of honey and earl grey tea. Sprinkled white chocolate flakes give the beverages a holiday vibe perfect for winter and it's available as both a Frappuccino and a hot latte.

In a veritable festival of tea lattes, two other menu favorites are also getting a limited time only topping option. The classic, spicy chai tea latte has been bolstered by a whipped cream layer sprinkled with white chocolate.

Another Starbucks Japan favorite, the hojicha latte is also reborn as the Hojicha Cream Tea Latte. Hojicha is roasted green tea leaves, a type of tea which has a toasty flavor and reddish brown color. For this temporary topping option, the latte has been mixed with white chocolate flavor syrup and the whipped cream topping has a smattering of brown sugar.

These tea latte beverages will be on the menu from Dec 26 until Jan 19.

Please tell me this is a joke.

For once, is it possible for Starbucks to promote something that is not loaded with sugar and fat?
