As much as I love Starbucks for their drinks and their coffee, I completely understand when people say that their drinks are expensive! So I wanted to help you out with giving reviews on new drinks before you spend money on it!
This post will be short & sweet, don’t worry!
THE JUNIPER LATTE
Starbucks recently released a new latte, the Juniper latter. This is how Starbucks describes it.
“Our signature espresso and steamed milk mingle beautifully with juniper syrup. This beverage has a light, pine-like flavor with delightful citrus undertones. We cap this latte with velvety foam and accentuate the remarkable flavor with a dusting of pine-citrus sugar.” – Starbucks
What is Juniper??
“an evergreen shrub or small tree that bears berrylike cones, widely distributed throughout Eurasia and North America. Many kinds have aromatic cones or foliage.” – Google
Here are the nutritional facts: Juniper Latte Nutritional Facts
What I got
I love non-dairy milks, so I got a Grande Juniper Latte made with Almond Milk.
The initial taste was yummy! It tastes refreshing and light. It’s not sweet by any means, so if you’re a sweet coffee kind of person, I would not reccomend. BUT if you like your coffees less sweet, then I would give it a try!
You can definitely taste the citrus and pine overtones and they are not over-bearing.
So when I first tasted it, I was pleasantly surprised!
The aftertaste…. was not my cup of tea (or coffee).
The pine (Juniper) really sets in when the aftertaste comes through the pallete.
THIS IS ONE PERSON’S REVIEW! REMEMBER! I am not a coffee expert, & I acknowledge the fact that everyone’s taste buds are different!
SO! This latte was not for me, BUT if you like earthy flavors, give it a try!!
I’ll stick with my Chestnut Praline for now 🙂
