Food & Beverage Reviews: Starbucks + Summer 

Summer in the Philippines can be experienced all year round. Starbucks, my favorite coffee shop with the best customer service inspires customers’ sense of summertime adventures with unique twists on the signature flavors of chocolate and tea in two new Frappuccino® Blended Beverages, available for a limited time: the Chocolate Black Tea with Earl Grey Jelly Frappuccino® Blended Beverage and Double Chocolate Green Tea Frappuccino® Blender Beverage (my new favorite beverage). Both drinks will be available starting June 7 to July 25, 2016 only.

CBS (Cebu Bloggers Society) had an exclusive preview on Starbucks’ seasonal offer and we were able to brew and taste their featured coffee: Starbucks Iced Coffee Blend. They created this blend specifically for great-tasting iced coffee – choosing premium Latin American and East African beans, then roasting them carefully to bring out a full-flavored tasted when chilled. Roasted to accentuate its full flavored taste when chilled, this blend creates an invigorating and refreshing beverage.

Starbucks will be releasing two featured Starbucks cards: The Scales Card (June 7) and Vivienne Tam + Starbucks Card (July 1).

Inspired by our Siren’s tail, this special blue fish scales design will make a colorful splash this season.
