Non Caffeinated Teas vs. Caffeine Free Drinks

It is important to establish the difference between herbal teas and non caffeinated drinks. In reality, Starbucks has a lot of caffeine free drinks to choose from. These include, but aren't limited to:

  • Apple juice, including steamed apple juice and caramel apple spice
  • Hot chocolate
  • Vanilla Bean Crème Frappuccino
  • White chocolate Crème Frappuccino
  • Iced Guava Passionfruit Drink
  • White hot chocolate
  • Caramel Ribbon Crunch Crème Frappuccino
  • Blended strawberry lemonade
  • Pistachio Crème Frappuccino
  • Cinnamon Dolce Crème
  • Classic lemonade

One of the main differences is that the caffeine free tea is considered to be a healthier option. These beverages are a mixture of warming or healthful ingredients that are typically meant to soothe. The drinks are almost always free of sugar and even calories.

The other caffeine free Starbucks drinks, however, are made up of fruit juices, blended cream drinks, or sugary concoctions. As such, they don't fall into the category of a herbal tea. They are also a great deal less healthy and are often laden with sugar and calories.

You should also be aware that when your order anything on the Starbucks menu that contains chocolate, that you are adding caffeine to your drink. This includes chocolate sauce and drizzle as well.

Now, a lot of people imagine that drinks such as the chai tea latte and and iced chai tea latte don't contain caffeine, but this isn't the case. These drinks contain black tea and thus have caffeine.

Taking Your Herbal Teas to the Next Level

If you think that there aren't too many naturally caffeine free options for you, think again! One of the perks of Starbucks is that you get to mix and match various ingredients to create your very own concoctions, all while maintaining a zero caffeine content in your drinks.

Here is how you can do this:

Add Honey and Steamed Lemonade to Mint Majesty

You already know that peppermint and lemonade go together. Well, if you want a drink that will be ultra-cozy, yet refreshing and flavorful at the same time, then ask for steamed lemonade to be added to your Mint Majesty.

And, to add a touch of sweetness, ask for a squeeze or two of honey, depending on how much sweetness you like. Once you take a sip, you are sure to order this drink over and over again.

Add Steamed Apple Juice to Peach Tranquility

Steamed apple juice is a top Starbucks drink and if you have ever tried it, then you know why this is. There is something delicious and comforting about it. And, when you ask it to be added to Peach Tranquility, this creates another level of flavor.

Best of all, is that the apple juice adds plenty of sweetness on its own, no need to reach for the sugar.
