Only available for a very limited time.

Year after year, Starbucks customers in Japan are continually spoilt with an ever-changing lineup of limited-edition drinks, ranging from creative Christmas tree specials to calligraphy-inspired beverages and unique sakura flavour combinations.

Sometimes, though, there are classic flavours that everyone wants to try again, and one of those delights is tiramisu. Starbucks first released a white and coffee Tiramisu Frappuccino back in 2013, and customers have been trying to recreate the flavour using customised options ever since.

However, while that release added cookies and white chocolate brownie pieces to the mix, Starbucks is now bringing the flavour of tiramisu back to the Frappuccino, and this time, it’ll be walking a straight line with a version that’s more faithful to the original dessert ingredients.

▼ Say hello to the Classic Tiramisu Frappuccino.

The new Tiramisu Frappuccino is designed to showcase the coffee flavour that oozes from the sponge of a tiramisu dessert. To do this, Starbucks has drawn upon a classic tiramisu recipe, first baking a sponge and soaking it in coffee, and adding it to the drink with coffee syrup and a mascarpone and egg custard base.

Finished off with a whipped cream and cocoa powder topping, this drink remains true to the original dessert recipe, creating a delicious tiramisu dessert in a cup!

The Classic Tiramisu Frappuccino will be sold in a tall size only, for 590 yen (US$5.30) plus tax, and will be available at Starbucks outlets around the country from 20 March to 10 April.
