Starbucks Christmas Drinks in Hong Kong

Every time I see banners for different Starbucks Christmas Lattes I wonder why we only have the Toffee Nut in Kuwait and not the other drinks! Last year I tried the ones in London and fell in love with – specially the egg nog latter (link)… last week I tried one in Hong Kong

They have the Toffee Nut Latte, Gingerbread Latte, and a new one Cranberry White Chocolate Mocha. I wanted to try the new flavor – Mocha, not Latte

Cute Gingerbread Bear Cookies <3

So I decided to give it a shot and ordered one with skimmed milk and no cream on top (you can have them cold too as frappuccinos I think)

Their drinks are served SUPER hot… I usually take the lid off (you may have noticed that already from my previous posts 😛 ) so it took it a bit while to reach my desired temperature

It basically is an espresso flavored with white chocolate, cranberry sprinkles drizzled on top, and steamed milk! Its very rich and creamy in texture… the cranberry flavor kinda killed the mocha taste, specially that it is combined with white chocolate, which is already sweet by itself…. in shorts, it was a bit too sweet for my taste but gave me Christmas and festive feel to it… The egg nog is still my favorite by far 😉 followed by a tie between the gingerbread and toffee nut lattes

 

Price Tag? HKD39 (Around KWD1.400)

 

One thing about Starbucks Coffee shops is that once you are in one of’em… you feel its the same all over the world! They keep the feel and atmosphere! I like that… oh and I spotted Starbucks Express Bar in one of the malls… tiny one and with little seating area only! I guess it works well for those on the go
