Starbucks celebrates “Year of the Ox”

Lunar Near Year, also known as Chinese New Year, is one of the world’s most significant cultural celebrations. Each year is characterized by one of 12 animals that appear in the Chinese zodiac with 2021 being the Year of the Ox.

To commemorate Lunar New Year, Starbucks stores in Asia and the U.S. are celebrating with customers with the introduction of a range of drinkware, Starbucks Cards, beverages and more, available while supplies last.


For more than 20 years, Starbucks has celebrated the Lunar New Year holiday with customers across Asia. To celebrate the upcoming Year of the Ox, the company is introducing new merchandise to commemorate the occasion, available at participating stores while supplies last.

The design of Lunar New Year collection focuses on an elegant-looking ox, with new year botanicals in shades of gold, red and charcoal to reflect the prosperity of the season. Starbucks signature zodiac collection features an adorable version of the ox, with a series of collectibles: demi and regular ceramic mugs, mini snow globe and ox-shaped coin bank. The lineup is decorated in a swath of burgundy red, creamy white and charcoal grey.
