Starbucks just released its new seasonal drink! So, step aside pumpkin spice and make room for the toasted graham latte.

It’s a smooth mix of espresso and steamed milk with hints of cinnamon and sweet cream—all finished off with a sprinkling of cinnamon-dusted graham crackers. This drink is delectably nutty and robust with the scent of a coffee crumble cake, while the pumpkin spice latte is more sugary with subtle hints of pumpkin flavor.

To compare the two, the graham latte’s flavor profile is more dimensional, and actually allows the taste of Starbucks’ signature espresso to come through. But the PSL remains the best choice for those with a major sweet tooth who don’t really want a strong coffee taste in their beverage.

The prices vary between regions, but a tall pumpkin spice latte generally comes in at about $4.25 while a tall toasted graham latte costs nearly the same. Try both these drinks out and decide which one you think is Starbucks’ best seasonal offering!
