Products of Starbucks Philippine are starting to be more interesting. They are launching an endless selection of new food and drinks, and now they've surprised us with another drink innovation using their existing products.

Non-coffee lovers can now rejoice once again, because there's another option for your Starbucks Teavana drink, its available in hot and iced shaken, but it will also be available in frozen format ---- not really frozen, its like an ice slush.

Two kinds of Starbucks Teavana  -- Chamomile and Hibiscus Teavana which I believe are the customer's favorite Teavana kind are selected to be used for the new Starbucks Frozen Teavana

Btw, the official name of the new product is -- Starbucks® Teavana® Frozen Teas

Starbucks Teavana was launched last year and it was one of the most exciting product of Starbucks Philippines for bringing a tea brand in their line up of tea drinks.

The most popular Starbucks Teavana format are the ice shaken Teavana, and my fave is the ice shaken Hibiscus Teavana with pomegranate pearls.

Starbucks Philippine teased us with this kind of theatrics aahahah. At first I thought that Starbucks will launch a Teavana kind with dry ice....but it was just a teaser and after some minutes of the launch event, they revealed this:

Here's a closer look of the Starbucks Frozen Hibiscus tea with pomegranate pearl.
I was taught on how to make my own at a Starbucks store and I've learned that there's a secret special syrup that makes the flavor.

I also learned that you can request to add more pomegranate pearl on your Frozen Hibiscus Tea, just add PHP30 and you get more mouth popping pearls.

At an early launch of Starbucks Philippines of the new Frozen Teavana teas.
Me and my wife enjoyed our Starbucks drink --- too bad that the Acai and yogurt Frap are no longer available, so I've replaced it with this Mocha Frap with granola.  Oks pala sya.

DSC_0020

Our son is with us and he sneaked sipping at my Mocha Frap, then I later told him not to drink it because there's coffee on it.

DSC_0061

Ha!! caught that they are serving Teavana drinks! LOL Shiela, our PR friend got a hard time dealing with my temptation to serve me a Teavana drink

At the launch they told us not to order the Teavana drink, so that we can prepare for the main new Teavana.
