For the first time, Starbucks is bringing two beverages inspired by the Starbucks Reserve® Roastery and Tasting Room to stores in the U.S. and Canada.
Beginning today, February 16, Smoked Butterscotch Latte and Teavana® Citrus Green Tea Latte will be available in participating Starbucks® stores for a limited time.
When the Starbucks Reserve Roastery and Tasting Room opened its doors in Seattle in December 2014, it was designed as a fully immersive, sensory experience. In the time since the Roastery opened, it has offered customers new ways to explore the art, science and craft of coffee and tea. Customers can try Teavana® teas by the pot and small-lot Starbucks Reserve® coffees using a variety of brewing methods, including Siphon and Chemex.
“The Roastery is experiential,” said Amy Dilger, whose team leads beverage innovation for the Roastery. “People come from all over the world, and they are eager to try something new.”
Starbucks new Smoked Butterscotch Latte combines espresso with steamed milk and smoked butterscotch sauce, finished with a sprinkling of smoky butterscotch topping, perfectly crafted to give Starbucks customers new and sophisticated flavors, inspired by the Roastery.
“The smoky flavor balances the subtle sweetness of the butterscotch,” said Christal Canzler, whose team develops new handcrafted espresso beverages for Starbucks. “It acts as a savory ingredient that enhances the coffee.”
