Just another reason to be jealous of fast food brands outside of North America, Starbucks stores across a few countries in Asia are running a limited-time promotion of two new mouthwatering Frappuccino creations. Hojicha, the light brown drink in the above picture, is a gently roasted Japanese green tea and the other drink is a Red Bean + Green Tea Frappuccino.
The Hojicha + Tea Jelly Frappuccino is described as the American Green Tea latte but it's paired with an Earl Grey Tea Jelly. BrandEating.com mentions that the flavor is a mix of the "toasty and creaminess of Hojicha" with the "refreshing, floral, and aromatic" notes of Earl Grey.
The Red Bean + Green Tea Frappuccino is notable for its whole kernels of red beans scooped on top, which makes me foam at the mouth at the mere thought that Starbucks could introduce the flavors in the United States. No word on that yet, but I'm sure if interested parties caused enough ruckus...anything can happen.
