Yesterday I was told to take more risks in life. Naturally, I took this as a challenge and decided to try out the new tiramisu latte at Starbucks. I also tried their coconut milk for the first time. Maybe it was the combination of coconut milk and the fact I never order sweetened drinks, but this was almost unbearably sweet for my sensitive taste buds (I think their caramel macchiato is the most sugary-drink I can handle).
Somehow the syrups added made this taste both bitter and overly sweet, with a slight artificial-flavoring taste. I can see why the product development team at Starbucks felt like the tiramisu latte would work well with the brand offering, as tiramisu is a coffee-flavored Italian dessert and Shultz was inspired in Italy for the cafes. I’d recommend this beverage to the Starbucks lovers who usually go for the Frappuccino and other sweeter beverages.
