Via an open thread on the blog, Starbucks Gossip has a round-up of new drinks, debuting January 3: "London Fog Tea Latte (Hot); Black Tea Latte (Hot or Iced); Vanilla Rooibus Tea Latte (Hot); Apple Chai Infusion (Hot or Iced); Berry Chai Infusion (Hot or Iced); New Green Tea Latte Recipe (Melon is being discontinued. The drink will now be made with Classic Syrup. Water is also being eliminated from the recipe, as we will now be steaming the matcha directly into the milk)." [Starbucks Gossip]
