REVIEW: Starbucks Honey Oatmilk Latte

Starbucks Honey Oatmilk Latte Cup

What is the Starbucks Honey Oatmilk Latte?

Now that Starbucks recently introduced oatmilk, I have a sneaking suspicion we’ll see a lot more featured drinks with it added to the menu. The new Honey Oatmilk Latte is blonde espresso, oatmilk, and honey with a toasted honey topping.

How is it?

Honey lovers, run to your nearest Starbucks – you won’t be disappointed. The honey flavor is super prevalent here, something I didn’t find with the Almondmilk Honey Flat White from early 2020. You’ll taste it at first sip, but it was the aftertaste that really knocked my socks off. Smooth, sweet, and comforting – and most important, a very natural taste since it’s real honey and not a flavored syrup or sauce.

I think the oatmilk adds a nice thickness to the latte that I don’t always feel with dairy milk. I’ll waver between talls and grandes for hot drinks, and I was very satisfied with a tall here. And with 85 milligrams of caffeine in the tall, I’d recommend it as an afternoon treat to power you through.

Lastly, as I typically note with hot drinks and toppings – the toasted honey topping melts in too quick with the drink and doesn’t provide the added taste it truly could.

Anything else you need to know?

This really felt like a cool weather beverage for me – perfect for sitting around the fire in the fall. I’ll definitely be remembering that in the future… but hey, I’m not wishing away the summer!


If your go-to Starbucks beverage is a latte and/or you really like honey, add this to your rotation for a delightful flavor profile.

  1. Sounds definitely like a keeper, especially for a cool day–and I especially like the idea of the thicker-bodied oat milk.

  2. I’m still a bit surprised (impressed?) that Dunkin’ beat out Starbucks in the launching of oatmilk as an offering for their beverages, nationwide. Hey, kudos for them, I say.

    Regardless, this has definitely been on my list of new coffee and/or tea drinks that I want to try from such establishments.

      1. Sbux did have oatmilk in the Midwest and other markets before Dunkin’. We have a partnership with Oatly, using their barista oatmilk; which provides better foam 🙂

        1. Yes! Love Oatly. It was the first oatmilk that I had tried, and swear it makes for the best lattes.

  3. Wish they would bring back the caramelized honey latte. One of my top LTO Starbucks drinks. That and the chestnut praline latte, so glad they brought that back during the winter months.

    And yes, something about oatmilk makes lattes/cappuccinos even better. Adds great body.
