Starbucks latest festive beverage release has become the subject of intense mockery on social media, with Twitter users brutally critiquing the holiday drink without even trying it.
The Juniper Latte - an espresso-based beverage infused with juniper and sage - was released in stores on November 27, and it wasn't long before people gleefully began ripping apart both its name and its taste in a series of hilarious tweets.
Latte - Name - Drag - Queen - Person
'Juniper Latte is an awesome name for a drag queen!' one person wrote on the social media site, while another person added: 'I saw the words #JuniperLatte trending and thought it was some new singer or a celebrity baby's name.'
But while some went straight for the unique name of the beverage, others chose to attack its flavors - with a few people blasting the drink as 'weird', while also insisting it 'tastes like a tree'.
Christmas - Tree - Twitter - User - @
'Tasted like I chewed on a Christmas tree,' wrote Twitter user @sahmiamx2
. 'Disgusting. Skip this holiday flavour [sic].'
Another user claimed that the latte contained hints of meaty flavoring, writing: 'Is anyone getting a hint of chicken bouillon from the new #JuniperLatte @Starbucks
? Or perhaps it's more of a beef flavor...'
Starbucks - Beverage - Followers - Juniper - Latte
One Starbucks barista even joined in criticizing the beverage, warning her followers: 'The new Juniper Latte literally tastes like a tree. If you come order it I’ll probably make you something else.'
Meanwhile, another person joked that the controversial drink might provide the perfect middle ground for a select few, posting: 'The Starbucks Juniper Latte, for when you want to drink a pine tree but aren’t sad enough for gin.'
Juniper - Latte - Addition - Holiday - Locations
But there are also those who love the Juniper Latte, which is the newest addition to the holiday drink line-up and is available at select locations nationwide starting today.
