For the first time ever, Starbucks Canada has created a special tea latte in celebration of Chinese New Year, which takes place this year on January 31, 2014.
Until February 16, customers in Vancouver can order the new Blossoming Peach Tea Latte – an uplifting, aromatic blend Earl Grey tea and Peach flavour. The Blossoming Peach Tea Latte is directly inspired by a popular beverage made in Starbucks China cafes, and Canada is the only market outside of China to offer this type of beverage. Vancouver and Toronto are the only two cities in Canada where you can order this drink!
Peach Blossom is a traditional flower in China and a symbol of beauty, love and longevity. A popular Chinese New Year celebratory beverage in Starbucks China stores since 2008 made with black tea, Starbucks Canada’s interpretation caters to the country’s palate. The beverage begins with mellow and soothing Earl Grey tea and the delicate aroma of peach, combined with the richness of freshly steamed milk, topped with whipped cream and peach blossom sugar crystals.
Can’t wait to try this!
