Starbucks Hojicha Green Tea Latte and Frappucino
Starbucks Philippines launched their drink of the month for the year 2013, Starbucks Hojicha Green Tea Latte and Frappucino.
If you are a Green tea drinker(and to those who adds milk on their Green Tea) you'll definitely love its unique taste.
First, we try the Hojicha Green Tea Latte; when you open the lid of its cup, it has this bubbly appearance at the same time, you will see the Green tea content. The taste, a strong Green tea extract mixed with Milk will be your first impression once you take the first sip; what I like about it is that it is perfect, not too sweet and not too bitter which Green tea is famous for.
Hojicha Green Tea Frappucino
For those people who fond of hot drinks, Stabucks also has a Hojicha Green Tea in Frappucino variant. Our first impression of the Hojicha Green tea Frappucino, it has this taste of Mocha, Cookies and Cream which is not an ingredient of this drink. Another interesting about it is that on your left portion of your Tongue once you have a sipped, it has this Cofee taste experience; on the middle portion of your Tongue, you will experience the mix taste of Cookies & Cream, and Mocha.
It doesn't have an after-taste experience when it passed through throat way down to your tummy, very common to their Coffee base Frappucino --guess this is one feature of a Green tea; and the longer lasting Green tea experience that stays on your Tongue.
So if you are into hot drinks or Frappucino, I recommend to try their latest drink Hojicha Green tea which is available until March of this year; this is perfect for Green Tea drinkers and to those who wants to taste Starbucks Philippines latest offer.
