If Red Bulls and Pepsis aren't your thing, you can still enjoy the spring season at your local Japanese Starbucks. But instead of just one cherry blossom-inspired drink, they’re going all out with a whole lineup of sakura-themed food, drinks, and goods.

Get ready for a whole lotta sakura coming your way, starting, of course, with the drinks.

SAKURA Blossom & Strawberry Frappuccino

This blend of cherry blossoms and strawberry is aromatic with a hint of sweetness, a perfect concoction for the upcoming season. Containing sakura strawberry sauce, it is also generously topped with strawberry whipped cream and sakura strawberry shaved chocolate.

SAKURA Blossom & Strawberry Latte

If it’s too cold for a frappuccino, you can get a warm sakura strawberry latte instead. This one also contains sakura strawberry sauce, sakura strawberry shaved chocolate, and strawberry whipped cream.

SAKURA Chiffon Cake

This soft chiffon cake is made from real cherry blossoms in Japan. The color is a soft pink, and a pinch of salt brings out the floral taste of sakura. It’s even topped with a sakura petal!

Sakura-Themed Goods

As with all holidays, tumblers, mugs, and other goods are being transformed for this season too. This time, they have two themes within the sakura theme — Serene and Cheery. While the Serene lineup features goods in gentle, pastel colors, those in the Cheery designs are bright and full of energy.

Sakura Latte

If you’re craving the taste of Starbucks but can’t find one nearby, you can always run over to the nearest convenience store (which we’re sure you’ll have no trouble finding) and get this sakura latte instead.

The sakura drinks and sweets will be available at Starbucks stores from February 15th to March 15th. Get them while you still can!
