Merry Golden Christmas Tree Latte! A Tour of Starbucks Holiday Drinks around the World

Starbucks holiday beverages

The holidays have officially arrived at Starbucks. In Japan, you can celebrate the season with a latte that tastes like a Cranberry Bliss® Bar. In Europe, you can warm up with a vegan Truffle Deluxe Hot Chocolate. And just about everywhere, you can enjoy a classic Peppermint Mocha. Here is a virtual tour of Starbucks holiday beverages around the globe, available at participating stores while supplies last.

Golden Christmas Tea Latte

This creamy seasonal beverage infuses black tea with Tahitian vanilla flavour and caramel sauce for a smooth, mellow taste of tea and milk.

Matcha x Matcha White Chocolate

The Matcha x Matcha White Chocolate Frappuccino and Matcha x Matcha White Chocolate are serving double the holiday cheer! The Matcha x Matcha White Chocolate Frappuccino brings marbled layers of aromatic matcha swirled between cool white chocolatey cream, finished with brownie bits and powdered sugar. Served hot, the Matcha x Matcha White Chocolate combines rich matcha with a base of fluffy milk foam and sweet, smooth white chocolatey flavour.

Jolly Baked Apple Cold Brew
Asia Pacific

The sweet and spicy flavours of baked apple and cinnamon are also delicious as an icy treat. The new Jolly Baked Apple Cold Brew features Starbucks® Cold Brew coffee with a hint of baked apple flavour, topped with a snowy layer of baked apple cold foam and a dusting of cinnamon. Available iced and as Nitro Cold Brew.

Jolly Baked Apple Latte

The sweet-tart beverage is made with white chocolate-flavoured sauce, mixed berry sauce, steamed milk and espresso.
