I love me some Green Tea @ Starbucks

I finally got a chance to try out one of Starbucks' Christmas dessert addition, their Caramel Green Tea cupcake and on account of the cold I was recovering from, I ordered a Green Tea Latte to accompany it. Yes, I know I did go overboard with the green tea theme....

I have tried green tea cake with red bean but never green tea cupcake with caramel on top. The cupcake was a real treat as it was moist and rich with green tea flavour. The caramel adds an unexpected nice kick to it as it is squeezed on upon ordering so that the flavouring doesn't overwhelm and affect the green tea-ness.

Green tea everywhere!
Hm, I wonder if I can ask the barista to top up caramel in my green tea latte next time. Their green tea drinks are just wonderful, whether cold or hot. Most places usually offer diluted green tea, often from a tea bag but Starbucks' green tea comes from powder form, a fact evident in its strong taste.
While the green tea latte has become my non-caffeinated hot beverage, for my ice-blended option, I like my green tea frappacino with chocolate chip. Lots of it. Give it a try. You won't regret it!
Have a great week ahead!
