Seasonal beverages

Starbucks is bringing in three seasonal winter beverages this January.

The Starbucks Hazelnut Dolce Latte is a signature espresso layered with creamy milk that is slightly sweetened with Hazelnut Dolce sauce. Served as a hot, iced, or blended handcrafted beverage, it is lightly dusted with mocha powder.

The Iced Jasmine Clementine Shaken Oolong Tea with Pearls has fresh floral notes to retain a balance of sweet and tangy. The beverage also includes orange pearls to create an extra layer of texture.

Those who need a recharge can opt for the Jasmine Clementine Pure Matcha Latte with sweet citrus and floral notes for a soothing twist. The citrus-flavoured milk is topped with shots of lightly sweetened matcha.
