Starbucks Refreshers Japan

Starbucks Refreshers hit the store shelves on June 25th in Japan. They are a new kind of energy drink made by Starbucks and can be found at Seven Eleven’s across Japan. The drink is fruit juice based and lightly caffeinated with green coffee extract to pick you up. Designed mainly for the female market and as a light afternoon pick-me-up as opposed to a full on energy drink. They are available in two different flavours ~ Cool Lime and Very Berry Hibiscus.

The drinks contain real fruit juice along with green coffee extract, ginseng, and vitamins B and C.

They come in a 200ml can and cost 200 yen (USD$2.00).

How do they taste?

Cool Lime ~ Very fruity and you can really taste the lime. The fruit juice makes it seem more like a soft drink but it’s very refreshing.

Starbucks Refreshers Cool Lime

Very Berry Hibiscus ~ A lot sweeter than the Cool Lime and you can really taste the berry flavours. Definitely our favourite of the two and easy to drink.

  1. I have yet to try them, but I think I'd go with the hibiscus one! ^^

    1. Thanks ZJ, They are pretty good, especially the Very Berry Hibiscus. A little more expensive than your regular energy drinks but worth a try :)

  2. I'm a morning person, so by late afternoon I need a full-on manly pick-me-up rather than a dainty female equivalent! Intravenous espresso will do nicely. :D I want to try these, though, for my sweet tooth.

    1. Thanks Ru, Not as strong as the usual energy drinks, but quite tasty and worth a try :)
