ICYDK: Starbucks added five new drinks to its menu—but for a limited time only

Starbucks is a Summer Queen™ and you can’t tell us otherwise

For most people, summer means sweating profusely even under thin clothes or in front of the AC. It’s staying home to avoid the sun or going to the beach and get a tan—no in-betweens. But for us, summer means something else. It means limited-edition drinks (and reusable cups) from Starbucks Philippines.

We had a blast last year when they released their limited-edition summer drink collection called “Tea-ology” and we have a feeling this year’s going to be just as exciting—especially when the brand just launched a new set of drinks for us to enjoy all summer long called the “Full-Leaf Love” collection. It features five refreshing beverages, ranging from fragrant and earthy to smooth and malty.

Sunshine Pineapple Oolong

Sunshine Pineapple Oolong is made with Starbucks’ signature Teavana™ Zen Clouds Oolong tea blended with real pineapple chunks and pineapple sauce. It’s also topped with honey cold foam that adds a distinct flavor to the drink. This is perfect for people who like aromatic and delicately sweet drinks with a subtle kick of tanginess.

Sunshine Peaches Oolong

Sunshine Peaches Oolong from Starbucks

We know some people who aren’t too fond of pineapples. So if you’re one of them, you may opt for this Sunshine Peaches Oolong instead. Similar to Sunshine Pineapple Oolong, it’s made with Teavana™ Zen Clouds Oolong tea paired with white peaches jelly, peach juice and honey cold foam topper.

Cocoa Golden Monkey

Cocoa Golden Monkey from Starbucks

If you think cocoa and black tea is a weird combination, you definitely haven’t tried this Cocoa Golden Monkey from Starbucks yet. It balances the strong Asian flavors of Teavana™ Golden Monkey Black Tea and the sweet and nutty flavor of chocolate oat milk. It’s topped with silky tea foam and tea-flavored cookie crumbs for added texture and taste.

Triple Golden Monkey

Triple Golden Monkey from Starbucks

Now if you’re into stronger chocolatey flavors, Triple Golden Monkey is the real deal for you. It’s much like Cocoa Golden Monkey—but with a more powerful kick of malty taste. It’s made with Teavana™ Golden Monkey Black Tea paired with mocha sauce, tea foam topper and tea-flavored cookie crumbs, which all complement the earthy flavor of chocolate oat milk.

Cocoa Caramel Coffee Frappuccino Blended Beverage

Cocoa Caramel Coffee Frappuccino Blended Beverage from Starbucks

This Cocoa Caramel Coffee Frappuccino Blended Beverage is the only tea-free drink in the collection. It is Starbucks’ signature Caramel Frappuccino blended with chocolate chips and topped with espresso whipped cream and caramel drizzle. This is ideal for those who prefer coffee over tea and caramel over honey.
