The whipped cream is then drizzled with a caramel "garland" and sprinkled with candied cranberry "ornaments".

This writer drove to two Starbucks early hoping she could convince a kind barista to make her one before the official launch.

Starbucks is rolling out another festive drink just in time for the holidays.

But with the Christmas Tree Frappuccino, Starbucks may have finally found the holy grail: a festive, Instagram-worthy drink that still tastes good.

The blended frozen drink is, perhaps, more suited for the Los Angeles crowd, than the wintry New Yorker or Montrealer. Another rated it a 10/10. Not only is it quite literally shaped and created to look like a Christmas tree, but it has a mix of flavors so curious and unprecedented in Starbucks drink lore that it's only natural that many people are wondering what the Starbucks Christmas Tree Frappuccino tastes like before taking the plunge.

It may not have the caffeine fix you're looking for but it'll definitely give you an extra rush of sugar during the holidays. A couple weeks ago, the company dropped the Toffee Almond Milk Hot Chocolate, which is ideal for anyone looking to warm up without sacrificing Christmas cheer. You can also ask for skim milk and no whipped cream to cut back on the calories but, again, it's not a biggie if you go all-in.

Christmas tree Frapp! It's minty? And I'm not even a fan of Starbucks, but I love it when they do stuff like this. Let us know what you think about the drink!
