|2017 Starbucks Sakura Hot Latte|
The drink itself was beautiful to look at. There are pink rice puffs sprinkled on top white (and pink!) chocolate shavings meant to resemble sakura petals. Unfortunately, the worker put the lid on, so my goods were a little smashed when I took the lid off! I hope you can’t tell! 🙂
Unfortunately, it didn’t taste very good. The fake sakura flavor just came off as a slightly-off artificial cherry, and that didn’t taste that great with milk. If you couldn’t guess, there’s like no coffee in this “latte”. They got the hot steamed milk part of a latte down, though, and a majority of the cup was that.
Though, when the chocolate started to melt, it infused the milk and cherry syrup with a subtle chocolate flavor, which was pleasant. Unfortunately, at the same time, the puffed rice balls also sprinkled on top of the drink got soggy the longer they sat there, and those went from yummy to yucky pretty fast.
Oh well, I still can’t wait to try next year’s sakura concoction… And maybe I’ll get the sakura frappuccino. I still have time, as these are around until March 14th!
