It's mid-March, and in Japan, that means it's almost the season of cherry blossoms! There's nothing quite like seeing rows of these sakura trees with their flowers in bloom, their pale-pink petals gleaming against the sun. Here's the closest we could get to cherry blossoms, for now: Starbucks is coming out with Sakura Blossom Strawberry drinks that will be available for a limited time, starting March 23!
Starbucks Sakura Blossom Strawberry Drinks
If the strawberries-and-cream combination makes your heart beat, you'll want to go for the Sakura Blossom Strawberry Frapuccino (P185/Tall, P200/Grande, P215/Venti)—a blended beverage of strawberry chunks in whole milk and ice given extra fruitiness with a strawberry sauce, and topped with chocolate petal sprinkles and whipped cream for good measure. Prefer to get your berry fix on a more fruit-forward note? Try the Iced Sakura Blossom Strawberry Tea (P180/Tall, P195/Grande, P210/Venti), which is perfect for a hot day with its combo of Teavana Hibiscus tea and strawberry sauce, topped with a creamy cold foam and chocolate petal sprinkles. These drinks will be available via GrabFood as well, so you can try them right from home.
