The cool February spring breeze is noticeably prevalent in other countries, while we’re unfortunately stuck with considerably hotter seasons all year round. Thankfully, Starbucks has got us covered.
In celebration of the beginning of Japan’s famous Sakura season, the coffee giant is signaling the change of the winds with new beverages inspired by the country’s peach blossoms.
To start off, there's the Pink Peach Blossom Cream Frappuccino, a sweetly sumptuous blended rose-colored drink perfect for satisfying both your tastebuds and your IG feed. There’s also the Chocolate Black Tea Peach Blossom Cream Frappuccino, “a beverage that blends aromatic black tea, creamy chocolate, and tart pink peach sauce,” to further satiate your spring awakening.

If you’re a cold brew kind of gal with tastebuds more appreciative of a tangy flavor, there’s also the Yuzu Cold Brew, based on a famous aromatic citrus fruit from Japan.

Meanwhile, available in select stores only is the Coconut Milk Cold Brew, a.k.a. “Starbucks Signature Cold Brew, lightly sweetened and finished with a delicate float of coconut milk which cascades throughout the cup.”
Other Starbucks offerings include pastel pink tumblers and cups decorated in a pink concoction of cherry blossoms and dreamy landscapes reminiscent of spring season in Japan.
Starbucks's spring collection is now available in branches nationwide.
