Judging by the fan frenzy on Twitter and other social media platforms today, it’s a safe bet to assume that Starbucks is kicking off September 2017 with the return of the now iconic Pumpkin Spice Latte.
In addition to the Pumpkin Spice Latte, Starbucks is also offering two other limited-time seasonal beverages for fall 2017: the Salted Caramel Mocha Frappuccino and the new Teavana Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Latte.
Salted Caramel Mocha Frappuccino blends mocha sauce and toffee nut syrup with coffee, milk and ice. It comes topped with sweetened whipped cream, caramel sauce and a blend of turbinado sugar and sea salt.
Teavana Pumpkin Spice Chai Tea Latte is a lightly sweet Chai infused with pumpkin spice.

Even Starbucks’ very own “Pumpkin Spice Latte” Twitter account was getting in on the action this week by posting tweets hinting at the PSL’s imminent arrival on Friday, September 1, 2017.

The Pumpkin Spice Latte features espresso and steamed milk, flavor hints of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove with a whipped cream topping and a dash of pumpkin pie spice to top it off. PSL is also available served over ice or as a Frappuccino blended beverage.
The limited-time beverage will be available at participating locations through fall.
