I am completely unashamed to say that Starbucks is one of my favorite places on earth for a multitude of reasons. Aside from the fact that I can literally get whatever my heart desires, Starbucks’ strong, caffeinated drinks are like heaven — and to be honest, that's all I ever really need for a successful day. If life is getting you down, or if you just need coffee to give you a little extra energy, this list of the strongest Starbucks drinks will most definitely pick you up.
It's pretty hard for me to pick my favorite Starbucks drink because it all depends on what I'm in the mood for. When I'm feeling like getting a little cozy, I'll most likely order a soy latte — and if I'm feeling super active, there's definitely a chance I'll be ordering something with matcha or espresso in it. My order always depends on my mood and — most importantly — how much caffeine I'm looking for.
Since caffeine pretty much fuels my entire day, I looked into which drinks I can rely on to have the most oomph to them. Aside from keeping you bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, the most caffeinated drinks at Starbucks are also guaranteed to be really freaking delicious.
Starbucks Plus K-Cups
If your body is craving some good old-fashioned caffeine without having to leave the house, rejoice, because Starbucks Plus K-Cups have double the caffeine of a regular Starbucks K-Cup. Starbucks Plus K-Cups include a whopping 260 milligrams of caffeine, so they're definitely strong AF. Plus, there’s plenty of variety: They come in Blonde Roast, Medium Roast, and Dark Roast.
Teavana Shaken Iced Black Tea
Maybe coffee isn't totally your thing, and that's completely OK! You don't have to miss out on all of the caffeinated fun. According to Starbucks' website, Teavana Shaken Iced Black Tea consists of lightly sweetened black tea that's shaken with ice. It's refreshing, and it even has 25 to 30 milligrams of caffeine to give you a boost. Although it isn't nearly as caffeinated as a coffee beverage, it's still something to keep you going through the day.
In short, there are plenty of highly-caffeinated Starbucks drinks, and not all of them are espresso-based. Whether you're in the mood for something iced, hot, or on-the-go, there's something caffeinated for everyone. If you have specific questions regarding caffeine and health, you should contact the National Coffee Association.
