It is summer! That used to mean lounging on a beachfront somewhere while enjoying a refreshing drink. But not anymore. For the last two years, we have been staying home whenever possible or going on a socially distanced work/errand run.
This year, as we continue on our quest of maintaining a sense of normal, Starbucks brings summer right to our doorsteps with their newest offerings starting April 20.
For drinks they have these four new refreshing iced Teavana beverages: the Sunshine Pineapple Oolong made with real golden pineapple chunks, pineapple sauce, and a honey cold foam; the Sunshine Peach Oolong with refreshing peach juice and white peach jelly chunks finished with honey cold foam; the Triple Golden Monkey layered with malty oatmilk, silky tea foam and tea-flavored cookie crumbs; the Cocoa Golden Monkey that has a decadent mocha sauce. All four new Teavana beverages come in limited edition reusable cups.
These are available for only P175 each if you get it in store or via drive-thru, 195 via Grab.
New food items are also available – there’s the Milk Chocolate Truffle Cheesecake, Banana Cream Cheesecake, Zebra Cake Made with Belgian Chocolate, Calamansi Chia Loaf, Cinnamon Swirl Cookie, and Blueberry Peach Pie. There are also new savory plant-based pastries — Mince Veggie Focaccia and Oh! Quesadilla — for delicious meat alternatives to start your day.
For collectors, a super cute Happy Hedgehog Collection is up with turquoise mint and green hedgehog, cactus, and sunflower designs. To top it off, Starbucks has two new card designs to celebrate the season: Hello Summer and Happy Hedgehog—both with a minimum activation amount of P300.
You can shop for Starbucks’ merchandise from their flagship store at Lazada or enjoy these treats from home by ordering via take-out, drive-thru, Mobile Order and Pay, or delivery via Grab.
