Starbucks New Whole leaf Tea Infusions Lattes

Starbucks has a new series of tea lattes and tea infused beverages. It's about time that Starbucks starts to pay more attention to their tea lineup. I have never been a fan of the Tazo teas at Starbucks and I always thought that they could do a better job with them. I think that my biggest complain about the Tazo teas is the fact that the tea bags don't have large pieces of tea leaf in them. When you buy higher quality teas they typocally have larger pieces of leaf. Anyway these new lattes and infused tea beverages are great because the are whole leaf tea so it should be pretty good.

  • Vanilla Rooibos Tazo® 
  • London Fog Tazo® Tea Latte 
  • Black Tazo® Tea Latte
  • Berry Chai Tazo Tea Infusion 
  • Apple Chai Tazo® Tea Infusion

 

Vanilla Rooibos Tea Latte

Full leaf African rooibos tea(naturally caffiene free), also known as red tea, paired with Tahitian vanilla and cinnamon. Sweetened with classic syrup and topped with steamed milk and velvety foam.

 

London Fog Tea Latte

Full leaf black tea with citrusy Italian Bergamot and a hint of lavender. Sweetened with vanilla syrup and topped with steamed milk and velvety foam.

 

Black Tea Latte

Full leaf black teas sourced from the premier growing regions of northern India. Sweetened with classic syrup and topped with steamed milk and velvety foam.

 

Berry Chai Infusion

Combines Chai Tea concentrate with a proprietary blend of aronia berry (tart berry similar to cranbery) and black currant (dark colored berry with a sharp, sweet taste) juice.

 

 

 Apple Chai Infusion

Combines Chai Tea concentrate with apple juice to create a spicy sweet beverage

 

I haven't had any of these beverages other than the London Fog one. Back when I worked at Starbucks we use to make that one all the time. It's a great beverage and tastes very yummy. Anyways the other sound really good as well especially the Apple chai infusion. That one sounds really good. We use to mix apple juice and the chai mizture together all the time and steam it. Really good!
