The drink is made out of a Peppermint Mocha Crème Frappuccino that's topped with a tree made out of matcha whipped cream. The whipped cream is then drizzled with a caramel "garland" and sprinkled with candied cranberry "ornaments".
Finally, the frozen drink is finished off with a strawberry that makes for a fruity tree topper.
The "Christmas Tree" elements of the Frappuccino come into play with the green Matcha whipped cream. So head on down to Starbucks and drive your local barista nuts. If you still aren't convinced though, there are plenty of rave reviews on Twitter to convince you.
It may not have the caffeine fix you're looking for but it'll definitely give you an extra rush of sugar during the holidays. The Christmas Tree Frappuccino officially hit the menu today but hurry up and try it because it won't be around for long. The base is a Peppermint Mocha Creme Frappuccino, one of the better Frappuccinos on the menu, and it artfully balances sweet, minty, and mocha flavors.
