Starbucks Sakura

The cherry blossom season starts in Japan usually around late March and Starbucks Japan is all ready for it with these yummy lovelies: Sakura Cream Frappucino, Sakura Steamer, Sakura Chiffon Cake, Steam Bun plus sakura-print tumblers and mugs. Too bad they are probably all Japan-exclusive.

Wow, that cake looks yummy! =D Oh btw, I tried Macha Latte (got some instant powder on ebay) and I think it tastes really good! =P Even though I still think it looks toxic =P

Haru said...

hey Kathi,
The Starbucks in Singapore does a matcha latte that's pretty good too! Do you have it over there?
Guess what, I just booked my honeymoon trip to Hawaii and Tokyo for the last two weeks of March :-) Let me know if you want anything!

Kathi said...

Hi,
ooooooooooohh..honeymoon! So I can expect some pretty wedding pics soon! Yay! =D Hubby and I are celebrating our 10th anniversary next year (April 2011) so we´ll be going somewhere in Asia, possibly Seoul, Hong Kong or Singapore/Malaysia... we´ll see =D
Hmmm..should I really bother you with a CP list on your honeymoon? =P Thanks so much for offering!!

So kawaii :)
Enjoy your honeymoon in advance :)

Haru said...

hi Kathi,
Anything for you, you know that! And you know I'll be shopping up a storm in Tokyo :-) Wow, 10 years, that's a huge achievement! You should ask your hubby to bring you someplace where you can get all your Asian beauty fixes. Both Seoul and Hong Kong have great shopping and food.

hi Mom to Angels,
Thank you!

Kathi said...

Awwwww, thanks so much! Ah, you know? I think the first time we got in contact was nearly 5 years ago! Time is flying by, don´t you think! =O I remember my first CP consisted of some MM e/s and l/g =D And from then on I didn´t stop bothering you haha! =D *hugs*

Hello!

I just went to Starbucks in Sg today and they do have some of the sakura-themed tumblers!

They have the white/pink/blue swirly ones (S$14.90) and the clear tumbler (S$16.90).

Was super tempted to buy!

hi, i'm a random reader of ur blog. and what can i say?! u provided very good reviews about makeup and i enjoyed reading them. finally, not a girl who has perfect flawless skin who is writing a review on makeup (becos i've oily and acne prone skin too). so kudos to u!

Anonymous said...

Hi Chole,

May i know which outlet u saw the tumbler? I wanted to get it...

Chloe said...

@Anonymous;

I was at the Compass Point branch, but I think that all the Starbucks branches should carry them (:

kitsunegarisale said...

Do they still have these tumblers and such for sale? I would love to have some, but I live in the U.S. Anyone who knows of a shopping service?

Jimi said...

Does anyone have any info on the 2011 Starbucks Sakura series products? I am curious to see what this year's line looks like. Thanks

laeticia521 said...

Haru said...

Thanks for the info, will definitely check it out!
