Experience Cherry Blossom at Starbucks Beginning March 12


The blooming of cherry blossoms is one of the most anticipated seasons of the year in Japan as it marks the arrival of Spring. The cherry trees' breath-taking sight with the pale pink haze symbolizes renewal, life, and beauty.

And to celebrate this year's changing of the seasons of the Japanese world, Starbucks Philippines is bringing in the new Springtime favorites at its stores nationwide starting today, March 12. The Azuki Blossom Cream Frappuccino is as dreamy as a Spring day in Japan with its velvety milk and sweet red bean base, topped with whipped cream, falling petals of white and pink rice blossom petals, and tart dried cranberry bits.

Additionally, Starbucks is also offering a green tea variation with the Matcha Azuki Blossom Cream Frappuccino which blends the bright flavors of Matcha and sweet red bean. This treat is also sprinkled with pink and white rice petals and cranberry bits on top of whipped cream and red beans.

Now if you would like to bring spring's unique flavors into your cup of coffee at the comfort of your home, the Starbucks Spring Season Blend combines four distinct coffees from around the world to deliver a big syrupy body with dark cherry and cedary spice flavors.



Besides these cherry blossom-inspired drinks, stunning Sakura-themed merchandise is also up for grabs at their coffee stores as well. With a dainty palette of pink, purple, and gold, the collection depicts two kinds of cherry blossoms inspired by traditional hand drawings and oil paintings that captures its beauty. These include double-walled mugs with rubber lids in Blossom Pink and Blossom Gray color selections with Sakura motifs, tumblers like the clear Cold Cup designed with a sprinkling confetti blossom and complemented with a lid and straw, and even adorable Barista Bear Keychains in pastel pink.


And of course, last but not the least, this time of the year's collection will never be complete without the limited edition Starbucks card in the lineup. Here we have the 2019 Sakura Card that is designed to show the delicateness of the Cherry Blossom's pale pink petals. Each card can be had for an initial activation amount of just Php300, it is consumable as well. 

But wait there is more! Starting today, those customers who will buy any of the two mentioned  beverages above can experience Cherry Blossom at Starbucks. All they have to do is scan the QR code found in each cup of either the Matcha Azuki Blossom Cream Frappuccino or the Azuki Blossom Cream Frappuccino. After scanning the code from the cup, they will need to find the Cherry Blossom banner to trigger the AR experience.
