14 amazing Starbucks drinks from around the world that you can’t get in the US

Starbucks International

The INSIDER Summary: 

  • Starbucks releases unique beverages for different markets around the world, and we’re envious.
  • From the beautiful matcha espresso fusion drink available only in Asia, to the cherry pie Frappuccino released in Japan, we wish Starbucks would sell these stateside.

American Starbucks stores certainly don’t lack creativity when it comes to special beverages. Stateside, we have the viral and ridiculously colorful unicorn Frappuccino, and of course, the annual pumpkin spice latte craze.

But some of the drinks available only overseas have us creating international bucket lists.

INSIDER rounded up some of the coolest, strangest and most delicious-sounding Starbucks beverages abroad (yes, there is a Starbucks in practically every major city in the world).

From the Churro Frappuccino in Latin America, to the matcha espresso fusion drink in Asia, these Starbucks drinks are like nothing we’ve ever seen before.

Sakura blossom cream latte — Japan

Come springtime, Japan celebrates Sakura Matsuri, or the cherry blossom festival. It’s no surprise that Starbucks creates limited-edition pink drinks and food during that time, like this cream beverage blended with a sauce made from cherry petals, condensed milk, and white bean paste.  

Caramel Coffee Jelly Frappuccino — UK

This drink that’s reminiscent of bubble tea is made with a coffee jelly base, then topped with a caramel Frappuccino blended with milk, coffee, and ice, and finished with a whipped cream cloud. 

Matcha espresso infusion drink — Asia

This matcha tea/coffee hybrid combines Starbucks’ espresso layered with milk and green matcha powder. The colorful effect alone is enough to want one.

Nowhere near Asia? Try this copycat recipe here.
