Starbucks revealed early this morning that as of today, a brand new beverage has been added to their Canadian menu. The Teavana Black Sesame Tea Latte is exclusive to Canada and is the newest addition to the Teavana Tea Latte lineup.
Starbucks Canada tells Narcity that the Black Sesame Tea Latte is a luxuriously smooth handcrafted drink inspired by black sesame ice cream and halva. It's a bold black tea, steamed with milk or a dairy alternative (soy compliments the drink best). It's topped with a rich, signature black sesame praline, made with black sesame seeds and caramel bits for a deliciously crunchy finish and a "subtly-sweet, nutty flavour profile".
“We’ve harnessed the magic of black sesame to create a rich, nutty sauce to bring out its fullest flavour potential. The subtly-sweet notes of black sesame pairs perfectly with our black tea to deliver a delicious drink that will appeal to customers interested in new ways to enjoy tea,” says Starbucks Canada's director of food and beverage.
Teavana Tea Lattes are made from finely ground whole tea leaves, which are steeped to perfection and blended with steamed milk and cane sugar. Giving your standard cup of tea a bold and delicious upgrade.
Now, the Starbucks Tea Latte lineup five variations. Black Tea, Matcha Tea, Rooibos Tea, Blossoming Rose and of course, Black Sesame. They're so cozy to sip on a cold day like today. And the timing couldn't be better because the new Tea Latte is now available at Starbucks locations across Canada! To find the Starbucks cafe nearest you, click here.
