Starbucks never ceases to delight us with their tempting seasonal creations, and here in Japan they’ve done it again this autumn with two new beverages that they released on October 1, the “Fruit Crush & Tea” and “Fruit Crush & Cream Frappuccino“.

Naturally, we had to try these, and we sent one of our Japanese reporters to a Starbucks the day the drinks were released!
