Starbucks Japan tells us what we’re getting for Christmas: matcha green tea brownie Frappuccinos

By Casey Baseel, SoraNews24

Japan doesn’t have any major November holidays, so soon after Halloween ends, Christmas decorations and yuletide treats start showing up. For example, Starbucks Japan brought out its Christmas-themed Berry x Berry Frappuccino on Nov 1, so early that the limited-time drink will be gone from the menu by the time we get to December.

But don’t worry, Starbucks is still giving us a Christmas present we can enjoy all the way up to Christmas day with the Matcha Matcha White Chocolate Frappuccino.

This isn’t Starbucks’ first green tea dessert drink, but it does sound extra-special (and extra-tasty). The drink is made with a fragrant matcha sauce with a rich, pleasantly bitter flavor mixed with a sweet but not overpowering white chocolate syrup, marbled to resemble a verdant Christmas tree partially covered in freshly fallen snow, A similar aesthetic comes with the topping, crumbled matcha brownie bits dusted with powdered sugar.

As Starbucks Japan often does, it’s simultaneously rolling out a latte version as well, the steamed milk-base Matcha Matcha White Chocolate latte.

Prices start at 590 yen for a tall Matcha Matcha White Chocolate Frappuccino or 450 yen for a short latte. Both drinks will be available from Nov 25 to Dec 25.

If only I could afford their prices to look cool everyday.

I deny getting that. It would definitely further ruin my this year’s Xmas.
