The latest Starbucks secret menu item is a bright green Shamrock Tea for St. Patrick’s Day. The best part about it? It’s vegan!
For those who aren’t aware, the Starbucks secret menu is a way to order off-menu drinks. However, you can’t just ask for the name of the drink (i.e., the Shamrock Tea). Instead, you have to provide the barista with a set of directions to make one of their current menu items into something totally new!
To order the Shamrock Tea, ask for an Iced Venti Green Tea Latte made with coconut milk. Then, ask them to add in a splash of lemonade and 2 scoops of vanilla bean powder. That’s all it takes!
If you’re not interested in a cold drink, you can order the Shamrock Tea hot as well.

Starbucks Shifting Towards Veganism
In the past few years, Starbucks has made a shift towards plant-based and vegan menu items. Due to the demand for non-dairy milk and plant-based food items, Starbucks has been adding more plant-based items to its menus.
Back in Spring, Starbucks’ Featured Menu included multiple vegan and vegetarian items, including a drink made with coconut milk and a vegetarian wrap. More recently, they’ve introduced a plant-based beef product to some locations as well.
We can’t wait to see even more vegan options coming in future years!
