Warm Up With a Cup Of Hot Tapioca at Mister Donut

23.September.2019 | FOOD

The beautiful warmth of summer is slowly fading away, ready to let in the cool autumn weather and subsequent winter. What better way to warm yourself up than with a nice hot cosy drink? Mister Donut is lovingly pouring two new seasonal hot tapioca drinks this autumn from September 20, including the Hot Milk Tea and the Hot Matcha Milk.

 

Mister Donut’s “Hot Tapioca” beverages first hit back in the spring where they tantalised the taste buds of customers, with each sip becoming more delicious and addictive after the next. The Hot Milk Tea is a mix of royal milk tea made with uva tea leaves and tapioca while the Hot Matcha Milk combines matcha-flavoured tapioca with milk.


It seems that even after these hot drinks have been released, Mister Donut’s regular Tapioca Milk Tea and Tapioca Matcha Milk beverages are still enjoying big sales. It’s always nice to have a choice to order what you like depending on your mood.

Tapioca Hot Milk Tea: ¥496 (Tax Included)

Indulge in this black tea filled with chewy tapioca and steeped in rich uva tea leaves to create a full-bodied royal milk tea.

Tapioca Hot Matcha Milk: ¥496 (Tax Included)

For something a little more Japanese-tasting, enjoy a cup of hot milk mixed with tapioca matcha.

 

These drinks will be sold until mid-February 2020, so if you’re in need of warming up this autumn and winter in Japan, head to Mister Donut.

  • Starbucks Japan’s Autumn Beverage Line-Up Includes Golden Sweet Potato Frappuccino & Macchiato

    17.September.2019 | FOOD

    Starbucks Japan has unveiled the second batch of drinks in its ongoing Artful Autumn @ Starbucks® promotion: the “Sweet Potato Gold Frappuccino®” and the “Sweet Potato Gold Macchiato.” Both will go on sale on September 10.

     

    The concept for this year’s Artful Autumn is “Be Colourful,” and that shines true with this golden, autumnal coffee line-up.

    The Sweet Potato Gold Frappuccino® contains a rich syrup made from cured sweet potato. It retains the rich, full-bodied aroma, sweetness and deep flavour of the Japanese sweet potato (satsumaimo). The drink’s main characteristic is the crunchy texture left behind from the potatoes. Its golden appearance comes from the honey and sweet potato blend sauce. This sauce swirls around the beverage which can be seen through the cup, giving it that artistic flavour required to be considered for the Artful Autumn selection. The cold coffee beverage is drizzled in this same sauce, rich in flavour and fragrance.

     

    Each cup of the Sweet Potato Gold Macchiato is made delicately in a mix of foamed milk, sweet potato honey, and a shot of freshly extracted espresso. The combination of the sweet and rich sweet potato and full-bodied espresso roast coupled with the caramel-y flavour is a coffee match made in heaven. The hot beverage is topped with more of that incredible sauce drizzled in the classic way of a macchiato.

     

    Warm yourself up this season with the latest in the Artful Autumn collection.
