Sweet symphony of flavour

What’s special about the Strawberry Matcha Oat Tea Latte is how colourful and fragrant it is. Layered with delicious notes of strawberry, this drink perfectly highlights the natural earthy flavours of matcha. This is a great alternative  to traditional coffee-based drinks, as matcha is naturally caffeinated. This drink iced with oat milk really brings out those sweet undertones, making for a perfectly light and refreshing drink even in the chillier days of spring.

Spice, with a hint of nostalgia

If you’re looking to opt for something cozy during those cooler spring days, the Cinnamon Caramel Cream Cold Brew is your best bet. This new addition is packed with a ton of flavour reminiscent of warm sticky buns. We found the dollop of cream a standout, as its light pillowy texture paired beautifully with the delicate notes of cinnamon. Each batch is slow-steeped daily in cool water for 20 hours, allowing for gorgeous flavours to come through. Something about this drink calls back to our childhood. We can’t put our finger on it, but the flavours are distinctly nostalgic.

Final thoughts

While the warm drinks offered during the winter season are great, we’re totally ready for it to be springtime. These new menu options from Starbucks truly captures the essence of spring, and are exactly what we are looking for this season.

In addition to the two new drinks on the spring menu, Starbucks will also be launching a collection of colourful merch inspired by spring. We recommend making frequent visits from March 14-16 as all Starbucks locations will be offering double star rewards on all purchases for members!
