Check it out: Starbucks PH unveils 2 new frappuccinos
MANILA, Philippines – Starbucks Philippines has unveiled two new limited edition drinks for frappuccino fans raring to cool off on humid days. The coffee giant launched two new frappes Saturday, June 4: the Chocolate Black Tea with Earl Grey Jelly Frappuccino and the Double Chocolate Green Tea Frappuccino.
The black tea frappe is made with a blend of Kenyan tea leaves and chocolate, according to a release from Starbucks. It comes with a layer of Earl Grey flavored jelly, sprinkled with chocolate Java chips, topped with whipped cream, with a touch of chocolate Black Tea powder. Here are the prices: tall (P180), grande (P190), venti (P200).
The other drink is a spin on an old favorite, the green tea frappe – except it comes with chocolate sauce at both the top and bottom of the cup. Aside from whipped cream, it comes with a dusting of green tea powder. Here are the price points: tall (P175), grande (P185), venti (195).
Aside from the new drinks, Starbucks has also launched a number of new food items: 3 savory, and 1 dessert.
The purple yam cheesecake sounds like a very rich addition to the dessert menu, described as a "light cheesecake swirled with purple yam, red mung beans, and macapun." It's priced at P140 per slice and P1550 for the whole cake.
The promo period for all items is only from June 7 until July 25.
