The viral drink, a chai latte with a shot of espresso, is one of the most noteworthy Starbucks orders to spread widely on TikTok. In a world where a new Starbucks secret menu item goes viral each week, the highly caffeinated beverage still stands out.
As @meanychristiney explains in her clip, customers usually order the Dirty Chai by asking for a chai latte with one or two extra shots of espresso. However, Starbucks charges for each extra shot of espresso.
So to avoid that added cost, @meanychristiney suggests ordering a regular latte and adding chai syrup. Extra pumps of chai syrup only cost 60 cents extra, which, according to the former barista, is less than the average added espresso shot.
“I feel like this TikTok was made for me specifically,” one user wrote.
“Omg … queen,” another added.
The former barista is the latest current or ex-Starbucks employee to take TikTok by storm. In recent months, employees have also gone viral for sharing the strangest order request they’ve gotten, a drink that was so elaborate it forced their blender to overflow and a crazy mishap with the receipt printer.
