8 Tasting Notes
With the new Starbucks Frappuccino mix, this drink has gone from okay to awesome. Ask for extra matcha. Try with soy if you want another sugar kick, as well.
This is my standard order at Starbucks. The mix is very pleasing. I highly suggest trying a splash of lemonade, and either 8 pumps classic for a decently sweet drink or 2 pumps classic for a subtly sweet one.
Have you ever ordered it blended? It looks REALLY funny. I kid you not, it foams. And the foam doesn’t collaps. Between the color and the foam it looks like a beer. I always get unsweetened ginger green.
Hahaha, yes! I asked a barista to “stick it in the blender” and it just came out foamy. I asked because I was both interested in how it would turn out and I needed it to be really cold really quick. The foam was funny tasting.
Hmm, seems like we’re both Starbucks frequenters! Nice to meet you!
Oh yes. I love my coffee as much as I love my tea although I only have a cup of coffee a day and drink tea through out the day. In the summer I’ll often get a blended iced latte (none of that frappuccino base cr@p) and then get iced tea to go. I’m glad I’m not the only one that makes baristas put everything in the blender:)
Hmm. I’ve never tried a blended iced latte. Is it basically like a chunked-ice version of an iced latte? What’s the price tag on that?
This is what you’d expect from a passion tea: tangy and a bit more sugary than the other iced teas offered. It’s good if you mix in a lot of stuff (I call it The Scott, after the creator of the blend at my local Starbucks)—some passiontea, lemonade, and Naked brand orange juice. Quite good.
A bit less spicy than its hot counterpart, but always an extraordinarily comfortable drink to have. Great summer drink. Highly suggest using lowfat at the least.
I haven’t found a way to make mine really cold since I always go w/ bags instead of the concentrate/syrup. It ends up luke warm.
Hmm. I haven’t asked them to prepare it cold with the bag—standard issue is the concentrate. But lukewarm chai doesn’t sound too appetizing.
It’s not, especially since I forgot to order it sans water once so it was watery luke warm spiced milk. Hot ‘n’ dirty too. Haha! Ok, that gives me an idea. I’m so totally gonna order a hot ‘n’ double dirty no water double bagged tall chai latte next time and see what looks I get. =D
Huge fan always. Seems to taste better prepared with lowfat (1%) milk. Less water, please. Very flavorful drink, all the time. A spicy treat for the tongue. Be sure to try it in soy as well as with Starbucks flavorings.
Yeah, I don’t think my store ever prepares it with the syrup, since the syrup is usually for iced. (Which makes sense with iced.) I’ll have to try it with mocha… sounds delectable! Thanks :)
A bit hard to find, since it’s seasonal. At this time, you’ll have the best luck finding it on shelves of Starbucks stores. After the holiday season, good luck.
It’s a blend of black, green, and oolong. Nice medium-strength smell that’s slightly sweet. Good taste, leaves a bit of a herbal aftertaste. Prepared at near-boiling and steeped for 2 minutes, let cool. Going to find a decent combo.
A good everyday tea, in packets so you can prepare it quickly. Sold at Starbucks for $5 for 24 filter bags, so about $0.20 per bag. One bag can stretch you two or more cups. Only in a large container, one ’brew’—don’t know how it is reused.
