Given any other global circumstance, people would be flocking by this time of the year to Japan in anticipation of spring. But since air travel may not be the best idea, at least not for the next few months, let’s go with the next best thing.
This February, Starbucks embraces the changing of the season with new favorites inspired by the sweet-smelling peach blossom – the Pink Peach Blossom Cream Frappuccino. This has a peach jelly infusion in the cream base and pink flower meringue topping that tastes as delightful as it looks. There’s also the Chocolate Black Tea Peach Blossom Cream Frappuccino that blends the aromatic black tea, creamy chocolate, and tart pink peach sauce to make an indulgent spring in a cup!
For those who want to spend their breezy days vigorous and full of energy, one can count on refreshing Starbucks Smooth Brr-ews. Perfectly balanced with tart and tangy citrus, the new Yuzu Cold Brew is layered with flavor and texture that is crafted to deliver a smooth and satisfying cold brew experience. Yuzu is a highly aromatic citrus fruit popular in modern Japanese cuisine, which is usually an elevated ingredient across the region.
Another new offering is the Coconut Milk Cold Brew, which lays the foundation on the Starbucks Signature Cold Brew, lightly sweetened and finished with a delicate float of coconut milk which cascades throughout the cup. This all-new variant will be made available in select stores.
Aside from the featured beverages, Starbucks also welcomes the cherry blossom season with charming merchandise blooming in Starbucks branches. Teeming with pastel pink hues, the new collection features the dreamy landscapes brought about by the soft and lovely textures of the Sakura. The artwork draws flowers inspired by rivers filled with falling blossoms over water, sky, and field, as well as trees in full bloom to place the sprouting cherry blossoms as the centerpiece.
Embrace the season of flowers at its fullest with the Spring Sakura Paper Card. Designed to add a delightful ray of sunshine, the pink card portrays the Sakura flower in detail. It will be available for an initial activation amount of P1000 per card.
