The coffeehouse announced that starting February 16, Smoked Butterscotch Latte and Teavana Citrus Green Tea Latte will be available at participating Starbucks in the US and Canada for a limited time.
Since first opening in 2014, the Starbucks Reserve Roastery and Tasting Room has offered fans new ways to explore the art, science and craft of coffee and tea. Customers can try Teavana teas by the pot and small-lot Starbucks Reserve coffees using a variety of brewing methods, including Siphon and Chemex.
The new Roastery inspired Smoked Butterscotch Latte combines espresso with steamed milk and smoked butterscotch sauce, and is finished with a sprinkling of smoky butterscotch topping
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.
Emily Fazio, whose team develops Teavana handcrafted tea beverages for Starbucks, created the Matcha Basil Mint Latte the Roastery offered last autumn, which inspired the new Teavana Citrus Green Tea Latte.
“Starbucks Green Tea Latte has been a popular beverage in Starbucks stores ever since we introduced it nine years ago,” said Fazio. “We took flavor cues from the green tea and paired it with ingredients like mint, lemon and basil to make it a refreshing and restorative experience.”
Both new beverages are available hot, iced and as Starbucks Frappuccino Blended Beverages and will be available until around March 21. The drinks will cost about $4.25 each, depending on your location.
