Around the World: Starbucks Hong Kong's Red Bean Green Tea Frappuccino Gets Its Own Muffin

Starbucks' Red Bean Green Tea Frappuccino is once again making an appearance in Hong Kong and this time around it's brought a friend: the Red Bean Green Tea Muffin.

The Red Bean Green Tea Muffin was first introduced last summer and features a muffin mixture with green tea powder and whole red beans.

The Frappuccino of the same name is also made with green tea powder and topped with sweetened red bean, a popular dessert in some parts of Asia.

It kinda makes you wonder why Starbucks doesn't make a Frappuccino-themed muffin or pastry for every new limited-time Frappuccino they put out. It seems like it'd be a pretty good gimmick. Caffe Espresso Muffin anyone?
