Starbucks Japan is celebrating 25 years since the coffee chain officially made their mark in Tokyo, opening their first store in 1996 by offering a selection of new drinks.
The four special drinks include a Cold Brew Coffee Frappuccino, Double Tall Latte Shekelato as well as the Coffee Tiramisu Frappuccino that is also available in tea form.
The Coffee Tiramisu Frappuccino is made using a tiramisu-like base submerged in coffee or tea to give it a smoother texture, complemented by the subtle tastes of vanilla and custard, coupled with chocolate powder. Customers can purchase both variations of the drink for 682 yen ($6.26), until May 25.
Starbucks is also offering a Cold Brew Frappuccino starting from 495 yen, for customers looking to purchase a drink with a stronger coffee kick.
The Double Tall Latte Shekelato has been reintroduced to Starbucks Japan’s menu until June 15, after making its first appearance in 1996. This drink brings together espresso, milk, vanilla and orange syrup that are shaken as opposed to stirred, priced at 506 yen.
Starbucks Japan outlined how coffee has enabled stronger connections with customers, regions, and partners, emphasizing how coffee has the power to connect people, according to their website.
To further celebrate this milestone, Starbucks Japan has also launched a collection of merchandise that falls under the 25th anniversary theme. Customers can choose from an extensive selection of bottles, jars, cups, mugs, reusable straws, among other items.
