Starbucks has launched three new frozen iced teas

We can’t think of any better way to celebrate National Tea Day next week than with this cool twist on the British classic.

As much as us Brits all love our hot tea, come summertime, we often have to opt for something a little cooler instead.

But rather than having to choose between the two, Starbucks has announced a new drink for summer 2019 only, launching three brand new, limited edition frozen iced teas.

Strawberry and Lime, Tropical Mango and Blood Orange flavours are already available to order in stores, starting from £3.35.

In terms of calories, the Strawberry and Lime flavour is the healthiest, with a tall size containing 389 calories. This is much lower than the Blood Orange and Passion Fruit frozen iced tea, which has 526 calories. The Tropical Mango sits in the middle with 443 calories.

The new frozen iced teas will join Starbucks returning favourite shaken iced teas in the flavours Peach Citrus Green Tea and Blackberry Mojito Green Tea.

Launching just in time for National Tea Day on June 10th, Starbucks has described the new editions as “combining the finest teavana teas and botanic blends with premium fruit to create a delicious seasonal drink”.

  • Strawberry and Lime frozen iced tea – Combines sweet strawberry with zesty lime, blended with smooth green tea.
  • Tropical Mango frozen iced tea – Icy-smooth and subtly sweet, mixing black tea with exotic mango and pineapple.
  • Blood Orange frozen iced tea – Packs a punch with tangy citrus notes and hints of classic raspberry that blood orange brings, all blended with hibiscus tea.

There’s no word on when the new limited edition drinks will be taken off the menu, but they should be around for a good few months whilst summer is in full swing.
