'Tis the season to put down your pumpkin spiced everything in favor of sweets of the peppermint and gingerbread variety. It may be a tad early to start decorating a Christmas tree or commence with the dreaded holiday shopping, but one thing it's never too early for is the discussion of the upcoming Starbucks holiday flavors. This year, Starbucks is adding a brand-new drink to its traditional holiday beverage roundup, and you may soon be putting down your peppermint mocha to try it. The catch? We have zero clue as to what it actually tastes like.

Starbucks just announced that it will be introducing the Holiday Spice Flat White this Christmas season, which is a variation on the flat white that Starbucks rolled out earlier this year. Flat whites are a traditional Australian coffee drink, but in Starbucks-land is translated to two concentrated espresso shots topped off with steamed whole milk. The espresso means the drink will have an extra caffeine kick, which is pretty much all we can guarantee about the Holiday Spice Flat White right now. "Holiday Spice" certainly gives us all of the Christmas-y feels, but unlike Pumpkin Spice, I have zero clue what this is supposed to taste like. Peppermint and gingerbread are two holiday flavors that I can wrap my brain around, so what will the actual flavor of this wintertime beverage actually be? Right now it's a total mystery, but the caffeine in this flat white should give you the energy to knock out all of your holiday shopping - it may be worth tasting just for that fact.
