Leaves are falling, the air is crisp, and it's time to grab a scarf before heading out the door. Fall is the time for harvest festivals, earth tones, and Starbucks autumn drinks have returned. Everyone waits around to see the new Starbucks seasonal drinks menu. Be it a pumpkin or apple variation, the new Starbucks Korea menu is announced on social media and in the news.
But did you know the featured Starbucks fall drinks change depending on the region/country you live in? We are going to give you a review of the new and best fall Starbucks drinks in South Korea and the United States.
Signature Seasonal Starbucks Autumn Drinks
Black Glazed Latte vs Pumpkin Spice Latte (PSL)
The delicious Black Glazed Latte was so popular that Starbucks brought it back after a little hiatus.
This delicious drink is black coffee topped with glazed foam (made from cream cheese) which adds a soft, slightly sweet cheese flavor to the coffee. Its unique flavor has become the signature drink of Autumn for South Korea Starbucks.
The unique drink with a delicious blend of creamy sweet coffee gets a 7/10 from us. The Starbucks autumn blend tastes like a slightly thicker latte with a hint of brown sugar.
The famous PSL or Pumpkin Spice Latte combines pumpkin, cinnamon, and nutmeg flavors with espresso and steamed milk. You can have the Starbucks autumn drink iced or hot while it is around for a limited time. One sip, and you’ll know precisely why this drink has become a cult favorite!
We give the PSL a 9/10. The Starbucks fall coffee is sweet without being overpowering and is deliciously iced, blended, or hot. With whip cream and pumpkin spice on top, this drink is amazing.

Autumn Promotion Drinks
Green Apple Chamomile Tea vs Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato Latte
This year Starbucks introduced the delicious Green Apple Chamomile tea.
Served cold, this yummy drink combines apple flavors with calming chamomile tea. This new drink is refreshing and a perfect combo to wind down with on a warmer Autumn Day.
This Starbucks Autumn drink was a crowd favorite here at Daebak. It gets a 9/10 from us. Very refreshing, with an apple slice accent that’s super cute. It's a bit sweet but it’s still a win in our book.
You can try a similar flavor as the Starbucks seasonal drink above by grabbing a box of TiO Iced Tea Apple flavor.
Made with real fruit powder and a healthy sugar alternative this is the perfect substitute.
This year Starbucks introduced a new Autumn flavor- Apple Crisp Oatmilk Macchiato Latte.
A dairy-free Fall flavor for the fans! A combination of blonde espresso, brown sugar, warm spices mixed with delicious oatmilk.
This drink gets a 7/10 from us. This drink, warm or cold, reminds you of a delicious apple pie with crumb topping. The syrup tends to sink to the bottom so give it a good mix or it’ll be too sweet.
This drink would be best in its warm version!

This season we are also seeing a reemergence of the delicious Walnut Black Tea Latte. A blend of walnut, soybean, and milk this seasonal drink provides a warm walnut flavor.
This drink scored a 6/10 for us. It tastes a bit like almond milk and definitely could be sweeter. A great option if you don’t have much of a sweet tooth.
Try this similar flavor right at home by grabbing a box of Damteo’s Walnut Almond Yulma tea. A blend of delicious nut flavors in a light tea.
Combine this tea with Samlip’s Jeju Udo Peanut Tart for a Korean snack experience suitable for those cool Fall days.
Starbucks also brought back the delicious Pumpkin cream cold brew for this season.
A pumpkin cream foam sprinkled with pumpkin spice tops delicious iced cold brew to create a sensational experience. Lighter in flavor then the cult favorite, PSL, this provides a hint of fall in a refreshing way.
This drink comes in at a 8/10 for us. If you love a stronger coffee flavor with a hint of sweetness this is the drink for you. The cold foam melts into the cold brew which adds a hint of pumpkin sweetness with every sip.
