Around the World: Starbucks Canada - New Blossoming Peach Tea Latte

While Starbucks' customers in the US only got a Year of the Horse Starbucks Card to buy in celebration of Chinese New Year, our neighbors up in Canada one-upped us by getting the new Blossoming Peach Tea Latte.

Actually, it's more like the cities of Vancouver and Toronto one-upped us (and the rest of Canada) as the new drink is only offered at select stores in those cities.

Based on a similar drink offered by Starbucks in China, the Canadian version features Earl Grey tea and peach-flavored syrup, and steamed milk, topped with whipped cream and peach blossom sugar crystals.

The drink was introduced in late January and is available through February 16, while supplies last.

As an aside, if they're going to call it a "Blossoming" drink, they should have included some sort of crazy sugar crystals that "bloom" in liquid. That would be cool (and blossoming!).
