Beginning March 12, Starbucks customers who purchase either of the NEW Springtime Favourites, Azuki Blossom Cream Frappuccino or Matcha Azuki Blossom Cream Frappuccino can experience Cherry Blossom at their favourite Starbucks stores. You just simply need to scan the QR code that can be found in each cup. After scanning the QR code, you will need to locate the banner with the Cherry Blossom to trigger the Augmented Reality (AR) experience. Upon scanning, you can take selfies under Cherry Trees of falling cherry blossoms. Join in on the Cherry Blossom craze and visit Starbucks to witness spring in full bloom!

Starbucks embraces the changing of the seasons with new Springtime favorites inspired by Cherry Blossom. In Japan, the blooming of cherry blossoms is one of the most anticipated times of the year as it marks the coming of Spring – a time of new beginnings. The breath-taking sight of cherry trees tinted with the pale pink haze symbolizes beauty, life, and renewal.

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

Starbucks Spring Season Blend is also available for those who want to bring spring’s unique flavors into their cup of coffee at home, it combines four distinct coffees from around the world to deliver a big syrupy body with dark cherry and cedary spice flavors.

Stunning Sakura-themed merchandise is also ripe for the picking in Starbucks stores. 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.

The double-walled mugs with rubber lids in Blossom Pink and in Blossom Gray 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 Bearista Bear Keychains in pastel pink are also part of the collection.

The 2019 Sakura Card will complete the collection, designed to show the delicateness of the Cherry Blossom’s pale pink petals. The card is available for an initial activation amount of 300 pesos per card. Visit the Starbucks Philippines Facebook Page for more details.
