Starbucks Sakura 2016: Asia

[Edit] Changed the title to ‘Asia’. I was right, it’s not just Taiwan but the whole Asian region that’s getting this collection. The Philippines’ release date is February 23rd. Although we got very limited designs, we were the first to release the collection. Hong Kong and Singapore release is February 24th. Other countries’ release dates TBA [/Edit]

Hear ye hear ye! Here’s a preview of the 2016 Sakura Collection from Taiwan to be released on February 24th and March 3rd (see below) this year. There’s a good chance the rest of us in the Philippines, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Korea, Hong Kong etc. will get these ones, too!

Loving these first few ones here. These speak nothing but classy. Apparently, they’re going for a day/night theme. The midnight blue ceramic tumbler reminds me of the 2005 Japan mug.

L-R: SAKURA NIGHT TO GO (12oz) | DELICATE SAKURA TO GO (12oz) | DAY and NIGHT TIME DEMI 2PC SET (3oz)


L-R: MAKE A RIPLE SET W COASTER | FROLIC SAKURA (10oz) | CERAMIC SS AIRY FLORAL | SS12 FLIP&SIP AIRY PETAL | SAKURA SS THERMOS WATERBOTTLE (400mL)


L-R: SAKURA SLIM COLD WATERBOTTLE | 2016 SAKURA SUNNY BOTTLE


L-R: MUG (12oz) | SPRING CERAMIC DOUBLE WALL MUG | 2016 CHERRY BLOSSOM GLASS | 2016 CHERRY BLOSSOM GLASS | SWELL STAINLESS STEEL THERMOS BOTTLE PINK

These accessories are (most likely) Taiwan-exclusive. I’m seeing a pattern here. Last year’s Taiwan coasters looked like Korea’s coasters in 2014. This year’s Taiwan coaster looks like Korea’s coasters last year. LOL

L-R: CHERRY BLOSSOM COFFEE POT | CHERRY BLOSSOM LID | CHERRY BLOSSOM COASTER

The following ones (except the rounded cup) are set to be released on March 3rd in Taiwan:

Starbucks Sakura 2015: Korea

Pinkaholic.net was inaccessible the past few days because my host is unprofessional and irresponsible and wouldn’t reply, and for that I apologize. The bandwidth actually exceeded its limit because the Starbucks collectors community is just that large and awesome. I am actually quite flattered.

Anyhow, if it still isn’t too late, here’s Korea’s Sakura/Cherry Blossom Collection this year. Most of the merchandise are actually the same as the rest of Asia’s, but they have more (as usual).

I think the ecard is prettier than the actual card~

They also have these pretty transparent coasters…

…and two muddlers (stirrers). The sphere at the end changes color in line with the liquid’s temperature.

Why don’t we have these all?! *weeps silently in a corner* Kidding! I have friends and contacts now, unlike last year. I think I might have a shot at completing the collection.

I’m getting this card from a friend to complete my own collection of Taiwan Plum Blossom cards. I am still contemplating, however, if I would get the whole collection – the design is close to Sakura after all. What do you think? Is the collection pretty?
