It’s official: the Starbucks Pumpkin Spice Latte is coming back this autumn. Nicknamed the ‘PSL’ by fans, the cosy beverage is undoubtedly one of the coffee chain’s most popular seasonal drinks. While wildly popular in North America and other countries around the world, the drink has only ever been offered at Starbucks in Japan a few times before, once in 2006, in 2021 and once again in 2022.

In case you didn't know, PSL is espresso with steamed milk flavoured with a spice mix of pumpkin, cinnamon, nutmeg and clove. It's then topped with whipped cream and pumpkin-pie spices. The PSL is available from Friday September 1 to Tuesday September 26 (or until stock runs out) at Starbucks locations nationwide.

The Pumpkin Spice Latte will be available both hot and cold and in all sizes: short (¥530 for takeaway, ¥540 in-store), tall (¥570, ¥580), grande (¥614, ¥625) and venti (¥658, ¥661).
