Blooming tea is a type of Chinese tea made from dried flowers that “bloom” when steeped in water. They’re typically lighter in fragrance and taste and look best when poured from glass tea pots. Of course, Starbucks’ westernized rendition is nothing like that at all, but at least it probably tastes good?
According to Brand Eating, Starbucks’ Blossoming Peach Tea Latte is based on a similar drink from Starbucks China, and features earl grey, peach syrup, steamed milk, whipped cream, and peach blossom sugar crystals. It’s available at select locations in Canada’s bookends, Vancouver and Toronto, until February 16, in commemoration of the Lunar New Year.
And to think, all we got was a measly new gift card, sigh.
