Cinnamon Shortbread Latte Review

I love new Starbucks drinks!! So I always try the new ones when they first come out. Starbucks recently released the new Cinnamon Shortbread Latte and I headed over and tried it the other day.

My order:

Hot Grande Cinnamon Shortbread Latte

Made with Blonde Espresso (I just personally love the taste of blonde espresso)

No Whip (I refuse to eat whipped cream)

(I usually get dairy-free milk since I like it more, but I figured I’d stick to the standard 2% to give it an honest review.)

What I have to say about it.

I really really like it!

I am a fan of their cinnamon dolce latte, and this is just a tamed down version of that.

It focuses more on the cinnoman flavor over the sweet.

If you like the taste of cinnamon and prefer your drinks less sweet (which I do), then I promise you’ll love this drink.

If you like it a little sweeter (but not white chocolat emocha style), then youc an always get it with soy since soy is more sweet in general!

If you wanna add a little twist

I feel like it would taste so much more like a cookie if you added hazelnut to it as well. Just a thought!

Get it iced! It also seems like it would taste super yummy if it were iced!

 

Thanks for stopping in! Let me know if you try it & how you like it!

Stay curious & kind,

Review on the Juniper Latte

Hi everyone!

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!

BUT

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 🙂
