Starbucks’ Shamrock Tea Just Hit the Secret Menu for St. Patrick’s Day, and We Feel LUCKY

This inventive Shamrock Tea from Starbucks is like discovering a pot o' gold at the end of the rainbow.

Lucky for us, after Valentine’s Day comes and goes there’s another holiday to look forward to—and it involves the wearing of the green. That’s right, it’s unofficially Shamrock Shake season. And even though McDonald’s has announced the return date of the Shamrock Shake and the Oreo Shamrock McFlurry, those aren’t the only green treats in town.

One of the most festive drinks, Shamrock Tea, is hiding in plain sight at Starbucks. When you find out how easy it is to order one, you’re going to want one for yourself!

How Do I Get the Shamrock Tea?

Totally the Bomb has the detailed recipe, but it’s not complicated to make at all. You start by ordering an Iced Venti Green Tea Latte made with coconut milk. Then you ask for two scoops of vanilla bean powder and a splash of lemonade. Now you’ll have a creamy, iced lime-green beverage that’s a lemony twist on a classic green tea latte. For variety, you can also order this drink hot.

Don’t forget that matcha drinks aren’t the only green-hued beverages on Starbucks’ menu. For 2021, the coffee chain added a Pistachio Latte to the official lineup. If you love nutty notes, this new drink could also be a springboard for secret menu creativity. Use your imagination!

You Can Go Green ANY Time of the Year

The good news about the Starbucks secret menu is you can order anything you’d like any time of the year. Even though Shamrock Shakes are a limited-time special at McDonald’s, you could order a Shamrock Tea at Starbucks any day the urge strikes. Here’s a refresher on how to order secret menu items from Starbucks. Soon enough, you’ll be ordering delights like the Twix Frappuccino and the Piña Colada Frappuccino like a pro. Lucky you!
