I am a huge fan of Starbucks and I admittedly go bonkers whenever they have something new on the menu. They just introduced two new seasonal drinks—the Red Bean Green Tea Frappuccino and the Hojicha Tea Jelly—and, of course, I tried both of them already, the big fan that I am.

The Red Bean Green Tea Frappuccino, unfortunately, is just the regular Green Tea Frap, only with red beans on top. Nothing really special, but it is something a little different for all Green Tea Frap fans out there.

The Hojicha Tea Jelly, on the other hand, has got to be one of the best drinks Starbucks has ever concocted! It’s unlike any drink found on their (or even their competitors’) menu. It tastes grassy and earthy; very unique but not too exotic for the not-so-adventurous out there. Even the jelly, which is made of earl grey tea, is very good. I love this drink so much that I am saddened by the fact that it’s just a seasonal drink, meaning it won’t be around forever. Oh well, I still have a month or so to enjoy it.

Now you have to excuse me. I need my daily fix of minimalism blogs, while sipping on a venti cup of Hojicha Tea Jelly, of course.
