Here's what Starbucks' Christmas Tree Frappuccino really tastes like

The Christmas Tree Frappuccino is a peppermint mocha creme frappuccino topped with Matcha whipped cream and it forms in the shape of a christmas tree.

This writer drove to two Starbucks early hoping she could convince a kind barista to make her one before the official launch. Um, what is a Christmas tree Frappuccino exactly?

Enter: the Christmas tree frappuccino. It's decorated with a caramel drizzle garland and candied cranberry ornaments.

TODAY tried the beverage on Thursday morning but the finishing touches apparently weren't available at our local Starbucks yet.

The "Christmas Tree" elements of the Frappuccino come into play with the green Matcha whipped cream.

While caffeine is essential for many during this time of year, the drink ironically contains no coffee.

Starting today, December 7, Starbucks will be selling these festive drinks at participating Starbucks locations in the USA and Canada.

Yep, it sounds deliciously refreshing even if it is blisteringly cold outside.
