PRESS RELEASE | Starbucks introduces a new Canadian-exclusive: Teavana Black Sesame Tea Latte by Jenn Chan

Starbucks Teavana Black Sesame Tea Latte

Starbucks Canada has a luscious new drink – and it’s only available in Canada! Introducing the new Teavana Black Sesame Tea Latte. Smooth, nutty and only available here – starting March 5th.  


This luxuriously smooth handcrafted drink features bold black tea steamed with milk (or a dairy alternative – we recommend soy!) and a rich, black sesame sauce topped with a tasty black sesame brittle. The result is a subtly-sweet, nutty flavour profile.


The new Teavana Black Sesame Tea Latte is the first addition to the Teavana Tea Latte line-up introduced to Canada last year featuring Black, Matcha, Rooibos, Blossoming Rose Tea Lattes.

PRESS RELEASE | High-Protein Breakfast at Starbucks by Jenn Chan


For many, breakfast is the most important meal of the day and the cornerstone for those new year’s resolutions. BeginningTuesday, January 9, high-protein breakfast-on-the-go arrives at Starbucks Canada with the debut of Sous Vide Egg Bites.

Perfectly cooked, cage-free eggs are prepared using the French "sous vide" technique resulting in a creamy, velvety texture that's bursting with flavour. Starbucks Canada Sous Vide Egg Bites are prepared with simple, premium ingredients, are wheat-free and available in two varieties. And like everything on our menu, Sous Vide Egg Bites are available all day long!

Your local Starbucks will be offering the following two flavours:


Bacon and Gruyere – (Wheat-free) – A foodie delight, even when you're on-the-go. We added aged Gruyere and Monterey Jack cheese, and topped them with Applewood smoked bacon for a delicious, high protein, convenient breakfast. Two Bacon and Gruyere bites have 310 calories and 19 grams of protein.


Egg White and Roasted Red Pepper – (Wheat-free & Vegetarian) – We added creamy Monterey Jack cheese, plus spinach and fire-roasted red peppers for a high-protein vegetarian breakfast that's both delicious and convenient. Two Egg White and Roasted Red Pepper bites have 170 calories and 13 grams of protein.

PRESS RELEASE | Holidays have arrived at Starbucks! by Jenn Chan



This year, Starbucks has unveiled its first colour-in holiday cup, available at Starbucks in Canada and the U.S. beginning November 1st, 2017. The holiday cup art is a hand illustration depicting scenes of the season, including a pair of hands holding red cups of coffee as a centering point, a symbol of connection, love and giving joy. Recognizing that traditions aren’t universal, they’re personal, Starbucks has intentionally left room in the design where others can colour, doodle and sketch in what the season means to them. Starbucks most inclusive cup to date is waiting for your unique holiday designs.  


What would the holidays at Starbucks be without a selection of seasonal beverages to keep you cozy? Below you’ll find information on Starbucks holiday food and beverage including returning favourites such as Peppermint Mocha, Caramel Brûlé Latte, Eggnog Latte, Gingerbread Latte and new lattes including Chestnut Praline Tea Latte and the American Nuevo.
