Starbucks is carrying out a limited test of two beverages “made with coffee pearls” at two stores this winter, including one in Bellevue, Business Insider reported.
A spokesperson declined to share further details, but a viral TikTok video posted by @kirbyssister shows a sign at a Starbucks store telling customers to “try our new coffee popping pearls.”
The sign listed two new drinks containing “Iced Chai Tea Latte with Coffee Pearls” for $5.45 and “In the Dark,” an iced drink which the TikTok user said was based on Starbucks’ Cold Brew, for $5.25.
Boba, also known as bubble tea, has exploded in popularity over recent years, with bubble tea stores popping up across the United States.
Do you know which store in Bellevue is testing this?
