Popular Teas from StarbucksSee All 8
I just realized I am a little more Sheldon than I care to admit. Saturday is Mother Parker OP tea. This is Thursday so it must be green tea Frap from Starbucks day. Different is not good. They say it is, but it’s not. So anyway, Had this skinny, no whipped cream, and an everything bagel smeared with cream cheese. Over priced yes, but breakfast of champions. What an excellent combination.
I love it so much I bought way too many boxes of Chai concentrate.
It is very spicy, I put a lot of concentrate (2 parts concentrate- 1 part skim milk). It is wonderful.
Makes a fabulous latte.
Since I am not working, I have been going with my wife on Thursdays paying bills and buying groceries. I now understand why my wife thinks I am trapped in at least a 20 year old time loop. Wow, the world has gotten expensive. Should have been a 35 year old time loop – the music was better.
The weather was gorgeous this morning. Perfect for sipping on a sweet icy tea drink. I get this skinny without the whipped cream. Today it was too heavy on the syrup and too light on the matcha powder but refreshing none the less.
Now I am off to a meeting to learn to federalize my resume. I believe it is mostly pointless. I know how to write a resume. The problem is I need some skills updating. I can’t get that until fall. Why am I going? My Voc Rehab counselor says it will be good for me. When did she become my mother? My meeting is an hour away, so I guess I am not going to get real tea again today. sigh.
Reading back, I sound a little gripe-y but I really am not. I just want good tea.
I am IN LOVE with this chai! I drink it almost every day.
I had to break my habit of going to Starbucks every morning because it was making me poor. Then I discovered for the price of one of these lattes, I can buy an entire box of the concentrated mix! The mix makes about 5-6 cups. So that’s 5 for the price of 1!!!!!!!! What a deal! Well, actually I guess that makes buying the latte in the store just a really big rip-off. But now I can still enjoy my delicious chai, and I don’t even have to leave the house! :) I’m very happy with this compromise. Upping the rating from 90 to 99!
P.S. If you have a milk frother/steamer at home, it will taste exactly the same as buying one made by a barista. But with huge savings!! :D
Love this Starbucks “Green Tips” tea. The favor is perfect. You can see the traditional “loose” Chinese style tea leaves through the elegant tea bag. More expensive than my everyday teas, so I save it for days when I have the time to enjoy it and for long road trips.
Cup of the morning while grocery shopping. Had it skinny with no whipped cream. I really like this better than what I rated it but leaving it.
My wife had a hazelnut frappe. I tasted it. The hazelnut was really tasty. This was followed by a swell of roasted coffee. I liked it until the coffee aftertaste kicked in. It lingers and won’t go away. Reminded me of why I don’t drink coffee. If I had something to snack on to counter the aftertaste I could probably learn to like this one – fortunately as long as they have the green tea frappe, I don’t have to.
Today I ordered this skinny (low fat milk – sugar free syrup). The barista added extra ice because they said the low fat milk doesn’t thicken up like whole milk. I could not tell the difference in taste. It was a little thinner. My only experience with matcha and I like it.
Back log from yesterday. Our Internet provider shut us off for exceeding the limit. I felt so isolated. Went to town. It was 30 degrees and snowing. My wife wants Starbucks. Since I never learned to like coffee, I always get some form of tea. Something cold and frozen seemed right today. My wife was excited when we walked in as her favorite barista was fixing the drinks. I have to say it makes a difference. This one is made with matcha powder and it was awesome. Way to many calories but oh so good.
This is a good summer drink, every once and a while. It is alot sweeter than ur typical green tea and leaves ur tongue all green but it tastes good, but i couldnt drink it everyday
had a free drink on my starbucks card and it’s gonna expire in a couple days so i had to use it.
large soy chai latte with 2 shots of espresso added.
if you have never added espresso, do yourself the favor! quick before the world ends!
After my test this morning I thought I’d grab something warm for the walk back to the train. It was entirely not worth it but the cashier was being a real you-know-what, and that’s something for another site LOL.
I was just feeling like chai and I needed an immediate fix. So in that case this wasn’t bad, it was nice to sip on it while I waited forever for the train, and it got me to thinking about the past.
When I lived in Tennessee, there was only one Starbucks for the longest time about 15 miles away, so obviously it wasn’t worth it and so when I went to NYC when I was 15 on a theatre trip, it was fascinating to see them EVERYWHERE. I had just been to Chicago a month earlier where my aunt took us to one, and she got me the Passion tea lemonade. One morning I got tea, not even sure what kind, but I felt very important in Rockefeller Center with my tea.
And time was probably the start of drinking tea, but just very on and off. There was always tea in the house but it wasn’t until a couple years ago that it was full blown.
But I didn’t even remember about that tea in NYC until I was drinking this today! Amusing.
My guilty pleasure and it has been for years. I always order a venti with no whipped cream. I would’ve given it a perfect score if it was healthy, but it isn’t. Definitely not an every day drink but it’s divine for a once in a while treat. It’s also an acquired taste, so I understand the mixed reviews. Sometimes the barista puts too much of that powder in it and it has a chalky texture, but other than that I have no complaints. Now I’m craving one!
I’ve been so eagerly awaiting my Red Leaf order that I’ve kind of been on a kick with these. Not healthy at all, but whatever.
I think it’s just a bit of an acquired taste. I love the odd looks I get when I’m drinking something this green!
This was my first drink i’ve had at Starbucks..Seeing as i’m not a coffee drinker I went for the tea.
I’ve been unable to make chai taste good at home so I tend to only drink it by buying it made, and this was perfect. I’ve become obsessed with this drink know.
It’s not overally spiced like some chai tea’s i’ve had, its a happy medium.
If I had to pick a sound track for today it would be “Doctor, my eyes” I spent 4 1/2 hours observing the coffee culture at Starbucks ;) I had two of these ridiculously sweet things and some ham (they called it bacon), egg, and cheese thingy. I was using their high speed bandwidth to download a 2gb program I need to learn. Too big to download on my home account. Anyway observing the goings on for all that time was amusing. Mostly the young and in love, can’t keep their hands off each other, couples. Plus students studying and surfing the web. I wish their were tea hangouts like this around here. If you have one you are very fortunate.

After breakfast at steak and shake we went to ‘The Walmart’ for no good reason, then to Lowes where we replaced our firepit. Had it for several years and the legs kind of rusted out from under it. Not sure if I am allowed to use the new one. We are under a burn ban. Does that include firepits? I don’t know. Anyway, its hot and dry and everyone but me wanted Starbucks. I went along because this is fattening and pretty tasty. Just got a tall and was disappointed I didn’t get brain freeze from it.
O-M-G!!! This is soooo good! I actually ordered two venti-sized versions of this today. :P What can I say? I was just in a chai tea kind of mood, and this is definitely hitting the spot! Mmmm! Love, love, swoon!! ;)
I can’t believe a Starbucks drink is even given the time of day on here, but oh we’ll. The passion tea is decent hot or iced, but UNSWEETENED. It is ruined by lemonade or sweetener, it ends up just tasting like pink lemonade which I find to be pointless. if you want something that doesnt taste like tea, why are you drinking tea?
Yeah, not gonna lie, I freaking love this thing.
Still figuring out how to make a good one at home. I think adding whipped cream on the top would fix anything wrong I did to it.
Whipped cream on everything pls!
