Reach a Different State of Teavana: Starbucks Frozen Teas

Saturday, September 2, 2017

A year after the Starbucks Teavana was launched in the Philippines, a new set of Teavana drinks finally landed our shores: the new Starbucks Teavana Frozen Teas!  


But before I talk more about these latest offerings, I just wanna share with you my first ever visit to the biggest Starbucks store in the Philippines! (Which happened to be the venue of today's event) This store is located in 9 Diosdado Macapagal Blvd. corner Bradco Ave. Paraรฑaque City, Metro Manila.

This Starbucks store brags a spacious, two-story building with an alfresco area for those who likes to enjoy their coffee/tea outdoors. To be honest, the whole store looks like a huge co-working space because almost everyone are on their laptops and headsets.

Aside from the minimalist vibe that this store is giving, I'm also happy to see that they actually have a Bussing Station! Starbucks in Korea strictly observes this kind of habit. That is why I try to bus my own stuff after staying in any Starbucks branch since this habit discovery.

If you're not yet familiar with Starbucks Teavana, this amazing Starbucks tea line comes in instant to-go packs and core beverages that you can order in stores. I swear by Teavana's Youthberry in case you're wondering. ๐Ÿ˜

This is the second time that my photo is featured in a wall exhibit. I couldn't be prouder of myself. loljk ๐Ÿ˜น✌ This photo was taken during last year's Starbucks Teavana launch in our country.

Our first activity was to design a pouch that has the Teavana patches. They said that drawing is a calming activity, BUT NOT FOR ME. I think that was one of the longest twenty minutes of my life because I sincerely have no idea how I'll design my pouch. (Check out the pouch that I designed at the bottom of this photo.)

For today's highlight, please welcome the new Teavana Frozen Chamomile Tea with Kyomo Grape and Aloe (L) and the Teavana Frozen Hibiscus Tea with Pomegranate Pearls (R)! These latest Starbucks beverages are actually exclusively available in Asia. Woohoo!

The Teavana Frozen Hibiscus Tea with Pomegranate Pearls is definitely not new to my taste because this drink is already included in the core Teavana menu at Starbucks (in the Iced Shaken format). 

This drink captures my palate right at the first sip because of its tropical flavor. Also, the pomegranate pearls makes this drink extra exciting because of its light, sudden burst. The blended ice makes it thirst quenching, perfect for those days when the sun suddenly decides to heat up even in the rainy season.

I'm certainly clueless of the other ways of preparing Chamomile Tea up until this day. I instantly got blown away by the new Teavana Frozen Chamomile Tea with Kyomo Grape and Aloe concoction.

Kyomo is actually "giant mountain grapes" from Japan, are skinned, pitted and left whole to maintain its texture. This texture highly complements the subtle sweetness of the combination of grape puree, the bits of aloe, and the signature chamomile tea flavor.

Here comes the fun part of the event! We get to be a Starbucks partner of the day by creating our own Teavana Frozen Tea beverages. ๐Ÿ˜›
