starbucks

Friday the 13th the weather was weird. Really warm, in the late afternoon it rained and didn't stop. It rained so hard that my slippers on the lanai were soaked and when I opened the front door, water dripped from the door jam.

I wanted to post about some new things at Starbucks. In some areas of Tokyo, I've heard that the Earl Grey Tea Lattes have sold out, which is sad because the ones I've gone to still have them.

On a recent trip, I tried their Orange Honey Latte. This is made with espresso and orange flavoring. My friend, T, said that it reminded her of those chocolate oranges, you know when you whack them against something they break into orange slices? I totally agreed with her.

They also have churros, but I didn't get a photo of it. I'm glad they heat it up for you, but sad that they heat it up so much that it sticks to the waxed paper they put it on and then you can't get the waxed paper off when you eat it. The parts I did eat were good though.

At the convenience stores, they have this out now too. It is called Bruxelles...dark chocolate and coffee, how can you go wrong?

Have a good week!

Not sure if you had a chance yet to visit Marty's blog, but he gives a different view point of the Starbuks in his local area, lol. I hope you'll get a chance to visit his blog.

Sorry but I'm not sure who you are talking about Lynne. Maybe you could attach a link to it?

Thanks. Take care.

Hmm...I haven't heard of the Orange-Honey latte--of course I am not there very often. Wonder if it is a Japan thing?

hmm, if you haven't seen it yet, maybe it is a Japan thing Deb.

Take care.
