Starbucks Green Tea Creme Frappe

I feel like I have become such a Starbucks enthusiast in the last 5 years. It is like I always find myself going there every other day. Sometimes once a day. I love the people who work there as they are always so kind and do so much to accommodate me and my tastes. I think I have tried probably every frappe they have ever made and anything with the word "chai" in the name.

Lately, I have been wanting to try their green tea frappe. I am not a fan of green tea (the matcha has an acquired taste that isn't something I enjoy); however, I thought I would give this drink a shot considering I have always wanted to try it. And just because I don't care for green tea, doesn't mean others will not.

I am a fan of cold coffee and tea drinks more than warm or hot coffee and tea drinks. Sometimes my mood wants a warm or hot drink if I feel cold enough to crave one, but most of the time I tend to gravitate towards the cold drinks. As I am a huge fan of iced coffee and iced tea, I have recently garnered a huge love and appreciation for the classic Starbucks Frappuccino (or frappe).

So, I decided to pick up the Green Tea Crème Frappe. I got the venti size (which is usually the size I get) with almond milk. And of course, I got the whipped cream topping as no frappe is complete without it.

I just love the flavor this frappe possesses. I am not even a fan of green tea, but find myself loving this drink. The whipped cream complements the green tea, as it brings out a certain sweetness that is hidden by little savory notes. I wasn't sure if I would like this, but I do.

The drink itself is 370 calories if you get it as a venti size with almond milk. It also contains 82 grams of carbohydrates and 2 grams of protein. The entire drink contains 92 mg of caffeine which is substantial for a tea drink, but not a lot compared to some of their other drinks. This is not a coffee drink, this is a tea drink.

So, what is the verdict? This is 100% Sarah approved.
