Every February, Starbucks Japan releases its line of spring time products they call the “Sakura Series”. Seen from the official Starbucks Japan website is the preview of the products in store for us. The Sakura Series will be released February 15th this year, right after Valentine’s Day. Excting isn’t it?
Seen here are the Sakura beverages. In this year’s line of Sakura beverages, they opted for the classic White Chocolate with a Cherry blossom twist. Made with real Sakura flowers and leaves, that slight hint of flavor will surely be new to our tastebuds. The Sakura White Chocolate beverage line cups will be decorated with Sakura petals and sprinkled with pale pink chocolate shavings, which represent more petals. Pretty!
I have tried Sakura-flavored food before and I can say that it has a pretty unique flavor that I love.
And finally, what I (and all the collectors and enthusiasts out there) wait for every spring: the Sakura tumblers. This year’s line is looking good. Have a look:
I can see new products, like the Sakura bottle case, the Design-your-own tumbler (last tumbler to the right) and that Sakura mini tote. Can’t wait to get my hands on these and hopefully, I get the stainless ones (not pictured), too! I’ll give you an update on the 15th.
