Winter at Peet’s: What to Order

Peets+Iced+Peppermint+Mocha
Peet’s Iced Peppermint Mocha

As winter approaches, there’s nothing like a cozy drink to help you embrace the season. If you are looking for a delicious treat this winter, Peet’s Coffee is the place for you. With several new seasonal options, from mochas to cookies, there’s something for everyone to try this winter at Peet’s Coffee.

First on our list is the peppermint mocha. A personal favorite and holiday classic, the peppermint mocha subtly blends the flavors of chocolate, coffee, and peppermint. While the chocolate is definitely the most prominent flavor, the hints of mint and coffee really make this mocha special. Its rich flavors are perfect for someone who loves sweeter drinks, and while it may not suit true coffee lovers, the peppermint mocha is still very high on the list. With a generous serving of whipped cream on top, many prefer the peppermint mocha iced for a refreshing taste of winter.

As for something with a little bit more spice, the holiday spice latte is a pleasant mix of cinnamon, cloves, and ginger. It’s the perfect festive drink for the winter season. The drink is created with Peet’s signature dark-roast holiday spice blend, and if you aren’t a coffee lover, then this is for you, with the coffee not being intensely overbearing. This drink tastes mostly of cinnamon, and reminds you of a cozy winter day. The holiday spice latte would perfectly pair with any of the seasonal food options.  

The peppermint mocha black tie takes the classic peppermint mocha to a new level. A cold brew with peppermint, chocolate sauce, and condensed milk, the peppermint mocha black tie offers a sweet, satisfying winter treat. Its decadent blend is sweet and comforting, perfect for those with a sweet tooth, and brings out the warmth of holiday spirit.

If you’re looking for some food to satisfy your appetite, Peet’s has you covered. The Peet’s gingerbread cookie is the perfect mix of icing and gingerbread. It is a chewy cookie compared to regular gingerbread cookies, but it is impressive overall. This sweet treat is highly recomended. 

Finally, the iced gingerbread is nothing like the gingerbread cookie. It is moist and tender bread with icing on top, and although the taste of ginger and cinnamon lacks slightly, it makes up for it in texture. While underwhelming in terms of bold flavor, it could definitely satisfy a craving for some holiday spice.

If you’re looking for a wonderful taste of winter, spice, and comfort, Peet’s is the place to be. With several different food and drink options for those who love sweetness and those who don’t, there’s something for everyone at Peet’s this winter.
