At $7 per drink, this felt pretty overpriced for me. It was pleasant but not being a coffee buff, I didn't get the notes that I was supposed to. This one's supposed to have a taste of white chocolate. I guess it must have been pretty subtle.
If you're looking for an interesting coffee experience, maybe you can try this.

This is NOT BOBA! This is similar to their pomegranate pearls just that they have coffee bursting out of those pearls instead of pomegranate juice. It's soooo goood!!! Anyone who loves caramel and isn't too worried about the sugar, would love it! $9.90 for Venti is a little steep. But with the AIA Vitality vouchers it's pretty okay. Plus the 1-1 deal happening til tmr! Always worth it then.
Can see that Starbucks is trying to hop onto the crazy bandwagon of the brown sugar fad happening in SG using the term "dark caramel". Of course that's totally different from brown sugar, but you can see the similarity there. Especially with the boba looking coffee pearls. Glad that it wasn't actually boba and brown sugar as that would feel just too desperate for a conglomerate like Starbucks.

Turned out to be less sweet than expected...almost like 50% sugar level. You can't taste the brown sugar syrup in this like you can with the fresh milk as the tea taste overwhelms it. I definitely prefer the fresh milk instead of the black tea, not that it's bad! I just like the smoky taste of the brown sugar which was rather lacking in this.
Medium size with no pearls is $3.50

It tasted like a regular chocolatey frappรฉ. Really couldn't taste the rose syrup. There is no reason for charging such a ridiculous price. I only bought it as it was 1-1 and I had a $5 voucher.
$9.60 for Venti size.

So what's a cascara syrup? It's supposed to be a type of coffee bean syrup. But....the barista said it's a brown sugar syrup. Whatttt.
Nevertheless, this was good. Venti size was $8.80.

There was way too much ice and because it was a sort of crushed ice, the drink got diluted pretty fast. The lemon grass drink was rather interesting. I recommend that instead of the milk tea
$3 each

Definitely worth a try! It wasn't as sickeningly sweet as I expected. Nevertheless, if you do not like sweet things, better to avoid this.
There is a slight bitter, smoky note to the brown sugar syrup, which makes the sweetness more than just plain sweetness. Slightly expensive tho, at $4.30 for medium size...which basically the smallest size there.

One of the longest names and the most disappointing drink EVER! The flavoured foam tasted odd and starkly artificially flavoured. The passion fruit was missing...or lost. Perhaps the mixture of mango and passion fruit AND the tea taste wiped out the passion fruit or just left a shadow of it. Since the first taste, it tasted watery and almost like fruit punch. And fruit punch is disgusting.
Halfway through, an eerily bright yellow oily looking substance was partially coating the top of the foam. What was that?? The food colouring rising to the top? The flavouring or syrup? God knows.
I mixed it all up after that and then it just tasted more like a bad watery fruit punch with the tea taste completely obliterated.
Don't bother trying this.

I tried the iced one before so this was unexpectedly different from that. The hot drink had frothy coconut milk foam on top which was rather enjoyable. After the while, the foam blended into the coffee and there was a nice mild coconutty taste throughout. If you don't like that, good to avoid this. Don't regard this as a healthier option because it's way too sweet to be healthy and coconut milk is truly not much healthier than normal milk. It's quite fatty, too. A great option for those with lactose sensitivity or intolerance!
Venti size- $8.60

Venti size- $8.70! But fret not! The 1-1 happy hour is back, which is the only time I splurge on Starbucks ๐Ÿ˜
This is my go-to drink when I'm having a sweet tooth as it is rather sweet, given that it is white chocolate. I prefer dark chocolate but the Dark Mocha has those infernal chips which stick to the most unreachable crevices of your teeth. The white chocolate and normal mocha is therefore preferable as it's so much smoother.
Grab this deal by Thursday, 31st Jan from 3-7pm. I should be paid for how much I "advertise" Starbucks ๐Ÿคฃ

This is an ever reliable drink which is usually good no matter which outlet or which barista. However, I'm always annoyed by the tiny chocolate chips which stick around all my teeth. That's why sometimes I just get the White Mocha instead. The tall size was $7.90.

I was told that the iced version tastes much better than the hot one and not powdery. But this was still powdery. My friend agreed that it wasn't good and she was the one who said that the iced is better. Apparently she tried the same thing at Metropolis SB and it was different. Much better. So I guess it depends on the barista. It was around $7 for the Tall size.
