Starbucks Philippines: Hojicha Tea Jelly Frappuccino and Red Bean Green Tea Frappuccino


By this time, I’m sure you have tried the two (2) refreshing and mouthwatering Starbucks Frappuccino Blended beverages. I have tried them both recently and I would like to share with you my take on the new Starbucks Frappuccino and new food items.

Starbucks Asian  Frappuccino Blended Beverages

Started on June 12, classified as Asian Frappuccino Blended Beverages because the high-ingredients were sourced from Asia and the beverages were released in Asia only; Starbucks Philippines introduced Hojicha Tea Jelly Frappuccino and Red Bean Green Tea Frappuccino!

Hojicha Tea Jelly Frappuccino Blended Beverage


First, we were served with Hojicha Tea Jelly Frappuccino.  Hojicha is a roasted green tea from Japan and it is said to be one of their most enjoyed tea.

With the full bodied and toasty flavor of Hojicha tea combined with Starbucks own Tazo Earl Grey tea-infused jelly, your taste buds will enjoy its one-of-a-kind flavor and bite-enticing earl grey jelly.  Retail Price: Tall P155, Grande P165, Venti P175

Red Bean Green Tea Frappuccino Blended Beverage



Honestly, I’m not a fan of Green Tea Frappuccino or any green tea flavored beverages but would you believe that the new Starbucks Red Bean Green Tea Frappuccino instantly became my favorite! The juicy whole kernels of Red Azuki beans and the light, refreshing flavor of green tea made this beverage a deliciously rich distinct taste to the palate.  Retail Price: Tall P155, Grande P165, Venti P175

My bf usually orders one beverage for the two of us, not because he’s saving but because we usually have common favorites. From the start, we agreed  to have different food items every time we eat together. A great example is the Mocha Cookie Crumble Frappuccino Blended Beverage which we both love! But it’s always him who consumes more than half of the tumbler. Now, I have reasons to order my own Starbucks drink since his favorite is the Hojicha Tea Jelly Frappuccino and mine is the Red Bean Green Tea Frappuccino, we can have both and still share with each other! Smile with tongue out

New Food Items at Starbucks:

Of course our favorite Frappuccino comes with new food items and are available only for a limited time at Starbucks stores in the Philippines beginning June 12, 2012.

Purple Yam Cake with Macapuno and Red Bean

Purple Yam Cake with Macapuno and Red Bean – As of this writing, I am enjoying a slice of this cake, yummy! Two classic Filipino desserts in one – soft Macapuno strips and red beans covered with creamy purple yam buttercream icing and sugar sprinkles.  For me, the red beans made this cake even more special.  Retail Price: P110

Starbucks: Green Tea and Berry Cheesecake

Green Tea and Berry Cheesecake – Green tea lovers will definitely become excited with the creamiest green tea cheesecake bursting with refreshing blueberries on a crispy walnut crust topped with white chocolate ganache curls. Retail Price: P140

Mom consumed a slice of this cake which seldom happens every time I served her something for dessert.

Starbucks Chicken Parmigiana Wrap

Chicken Parmigiana Wrap – hearty yet healthy snack, wrapped in crispy chewy pita bread filled with juicy and tender chicken breast fillet, sliced eggplant in Italian tomato sauce and grated cheese.  Flavorful and totally satisfying, I wish to have it everyday! Retail Price: P150

Starbucks Bacon and Cheese on Italian Country Bread

Bacon and Cheese on Italian Country Bread – With six (6) types of cheeses (Gruyere, Emmenthal, Provolone, Mozzarella, Feta and Cheddar) and crispy bacon strips seasoned with creamy pesto sauce and Italian herbed butter on bread. It’s the favorite of the group, deliciously grilled cheese sandwich perfect anytime of the day. Retail Price: P150 

Starbucks Beef and Mushroom Pie

Beef and Mushroom Pie – last but definitely not the least is a flaky, golden brown, buttery pastry filled with moist and tender beef strips, carrots, sliced mushrooms and creamy fresh mashed potatoes. Retail Price P95

Savor the taste and aroma of the new Starbucks Asian Blended Frappuccino and Starbucks food items while available at all Starbucks store nationwide!
