29 June 2012, Singapore – As we busk in the summer heat, enjoying the bright, sunny and warm weather, check out the new refreshing drinks that Starbucks and Gloria Jean’s Coffees have prepared to celebrate this hot season.
Starbucks Singapore introduced 2 new Frappuccinos – Hojicha + Tea Jelly and Red Bean + Green Tea. The Red Bean + Green Tea Frappuccino gives you all the goodness of your favourite Green Tea Frap with a generous dose of sweet Azuki beans. For lovers for red beans, this is truly a treat. For something new and innovative, try the Hojicha + Tea Jelly. Hojicha is roasted Japanese green tea where the roasting changes the leaf colour from green to light reddish-brown and gives it a more toasty, caramel-like flavour. The jelly is made from Starbucks own Tazo Earl Grey tea. This combination gives a nice unique taste and feel.

Both these exotic fruit blends give a good balance of the sweetness from the mango or strawberry, with the citrus taste of grapefruit.
