A latte from Starbucks never fails to shake us back into life when we're feeling worn out on a work day, or we're just hankering for something sweet and creamy. Sometimes, though, we find ourselves looking for a cup with a more unique flavor profile—and if you think you've tasted them all as far as alternative coffee flavors go, wait until you try this new treat from Starbucks: Say hello to the Smoked Butterscotch Latte!
The Smoked Butterscotch Latte has a lush smoked-butterscotch sauce mixed into Starbucks' signature espresso and steamed milk. Complementing its buttery, brown-sugary profile is a sprinkling of Turkish coffee grounds—and we don't know about you, but we're intrigued! It's available hot, iced, or blended at P180 for a Tall cup, P195 for a Grande cup, and P210 for a Venti cup.
If you're more for tea than coffee, you'll be happy to know that Starbucks is also coming out with the Manuka Honey Ginger Black Tea (P175/Tall, P190/Grande, P205/Venti; available hot or iced). This drink has Starbucks' signature English Breakfast Tea, New Zealand Manuka Honey, chunks of zingy Taiwanese ginger, and swirls of a honey-ginger sauce for a warm and invigorating profile.
These drinks, which were officially released yesterday, January 5, will be available only for a limited time. You can also order them through GrabFood—just note that prices may vary.
Starbucks is an American coffee chain that was established in the '70s.

Other bestsellers at Starbucks are the Caramel Macchiato and Mocha Frappuccino.
