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.
I don’t know about the others, but I think this is a decent tea. Just had it last night after a big party, and it definitely hit the spot. Prepared with a bit of milk and honey. Tasted good. Slight herbal accents which I enjoyed.
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.
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.
Nice drink. It’s almost like green but with an extra kick. I usually do 8 shots classic when I want a sweeter drink. Try it with a splash of lemonade, it’s great!
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.
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.
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.
