Starbucks Introduces Smoked Butterscotch and Citrus Green Tea Lattes

Starbucks has released these two “roastery-inspired” beverages as limited-time menu items starting this week

Starbucks has come out with two brand new flavored syrup-boosted caffeinated beverages.

Starbucks has rolled out two new beverages to tempt your taste buds with your morning: smoked Butterscotch and Citrus Green Tea Lattes. The two new flavors are both inspired by the Starbucks reserve roasting room, and are available in hot, iced, or Frappuccino for a limited time.

The Smoked Butterscotch Latte is made with espresso, steamed milk, and smoked butterscotch sauce, and finished off with smoked butterscotch whipped topping.

“The smoky flavor balances the subtle sweetness of the butterscotch,” said Christal Canzler, whose team develops new handcrafted espresso beverages for Starbucks. “It acts as a savory ingredient that enhances the coffee.”

The Teavana Citrus Green Tea Latte is made with “shade-grown, micro-ground” green tea and steamed milk, sweetened with citrus mint syrup, and finished with “lemon essence” whipped topping.


“Starbucks Green Tea Latte has been a popular beverage in Starbucks stores ever since we introduced it nine years ago,” said Emily Fazio, a representative from Teavana. “We took flavor cues from the green tea and paired it with ingredients like mint, lemon and basil to make it a refreshing and restorative experience.”
