Everyone planning to experience Japan’s sakura season is likely thinking twice about their travel plans. No thanks to the nCOV global epidemic, traveling should be done with extra caution these days, especially to countries with confirmed cases, including Japan.
However, you don’t need to leave the country just to enjoy those faded pink flowers and the cool breeze that’s associated with springtime. You can just enjoy sakura-inspired drinks and merchandise—with a twist—at your nearby Starbucks branch anywhere in the Philippines.
Pink Peach Delight
As spring winds begin to blow cool air this February, Starbucks embraces the changing of the season with a cheerful menu of new favorites inspired by the sweet-smelling peach blossom. Savor the flavors of spring with delicious pink peach beverages available for a limited time.
There’s the Pink Peach Blossom Cream Frappuccino blended beverage, which will bring to mind bright sunny days. From the peach jelly infusion in the cream base to the pink flower meringue topping, this Instagrammable pink peach beverage tastes and looks delightful. Each sip is peach perfect!
Starbucks also offers another sweet and refreshing variation: Chocolate Black Tea Peach Blossom Cream Frappuccino, which blends aromatic black tea, creamy chocolate, and tart pink peach sauce.
Indulge in this new season’s favorites and let these featured beverages bring you spring in a cup (P175 for Tall, P190 for Grande, and P205 for Venti).
For those who want to spend their breezy days vigorously and full of energy, one can count on Starbucks Smooth “Brr-ews”: Refreshing Yuzu and smooth vanilla sweet cream elevate these delicious cold brew beverages.
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, and it’s usually an elevated ingredient across the region.
Another new offering is the Coconut Milk Cold Brew with Starbucks Signature Cold Brew as base, lightly sweetened and finished with a delicate float of coconut milk that cascades throughout the cup. This all new variant is available only in select stores.
Blooming Starbucks Card and merchandise
Aside from the featured beverages, Starbucks also welcomes the cherry blossom season with charming merchandise in Starbucks branches. Done in 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 fields, as well as trees in full bloom to place the sprouting cherry blossoms as the centerpiece.
Of course the season of flowers also comes with its own Spring Sakura Paper Card. The pretty pink card portrays the Sakura flower in detail. It’s available for an initial activation amount of P1,000 per card.
Experience springtime and have your own picture perfect moment right at your favorite Starbucks Philippines branch.
