Starbucks is excited to announce the launch of new seasonal cherry blossom beverages and merchandise, available February 15 for a limited time at stores in Japan.
With delicate pink designs inspired by cherry blossom in full bloom, these delicious new offerings are the perfect treats to welcome spring. The Sakura Strawberry Shiratama Frappuccino® blended beverage features a dreamy blend of strawberries and cream with a topping of whipped cream, chewy rice flour dumplings and strawberry shaved chocolate topping. The Sakura Saita Milk Latte blends sweet and tart strawberry sauce with luscious steam milk, finished with handcrafted latte art of a cherry tree in full bloom. And while supplies last, customers can customize any beverage topped with foam or whipped cream with sakura latte art handcrafted by Starbucks baristas.
A gorgeous lineup of merchandise is available, inspired by the sense of beauty and ephemeral nature of cherry blossoms. Each piece captures different expressions of cherries in full bloom, with soft pinks and refined blues that evoke the spring sky.
Customers can also enjoy cherry blossom season with the annual favorite Starbucks Sakura AR Experience, available by scanning a QR code in stores, on Starbucks receipts and bags, or on Starbucks Online Store delivery boxes.
