Last weekend, I tried one of Starbuck’s new Tea Lattes. At Starbucks, I almost always stick to my usual soy misto, but for some reason, I was in the mood for tea this time.
I decided to sample the Tazo Vanilla Rooibos Tea Latte, which is a combination of Tazo tea and steamed milk.
Its flavor was distinct– sweet, spicy, and vanilla-y, all at the same time. My tastebuds were very intrigued!
Vanilla and hints of honey stood out as the dominate flavors, but they were subtle, not overwhelming or artificial tasting.
The Tea Latte had a nice blend of tea and milk. It wasn’t thick and milky like a latte, but it also wasn’t just plain tea. It was a wonderful blend of both: light tea and soothing milk.
In addition to being light, sweet, and delicious, the Vanilla Rooibos Tea Latte is also low in calories. For a tall beverage with non-fat milk, it is just 120 calories, 0g fat, 6g protein, 20% calcium (in case you’re curious).
I’m a big fan of these Tea Lattes, especially when you’re in the mood for something different.
Starbucks also makes a London Fog Tea Latte, which I want to try next. From what I’ve heard, it’s sweet, but more citrusy with a hint of lavender. Sounds interesting, right? Let me know what you think if you try one!
