As you may know, I work at Starbucks. They recently rolled out a new batch of drinks: the tea lattes. I have always been a coffee person, but once in a while I’ll take tea: always with Chinese food, sometimes when I have a sore throat or stuffed up sinuses, but never with milk. Yuck. So, these new drinks–the London Fog Tea Latte, the Vanilla Rooibos Tea Latte, and the Black Tea Latte–are not my favorite beverages on the Starbucks menu. (Although if we’re going to talk SMELLS, the Vanilla Rooibos tea bags smell AMAZING! I want someone to bottle that as bubble bath. I’d buy a gazillion gallons of it.)
They also have two other new drinks–the Berry Chai Infusion and the Apple Chai Infusion. I like both of them, and they both come iced or hot. I like the BCI cold. The ACI tastes a lot like mulled apple cider, which I like. (I just realized I’ve never had that with whipped cream, and I bet that’s pretty tasty.)
So, out of the five new drinks, I would highly recommend the Berry Chai, iced.
