These cherry blossom drinks are so kawaii!
The cherry blossom season in Japan is fast approaching, and Starbucks Japan is so ready for it! In fact, they have just announced the release of two new cherry blossom inspired drinks that look as cute as they taste (at least we hope so)!
So here are some fun facts about Japan! The cherry blossom season in Japan usually happens as early as January depending on the location. But every year they release a forecast on the best time to see the cherry blossoms in full bloom. And this year the cherry blossoms in Tokyo are expected to be in full bloom by March 22.

These special few days are often spent with family, friends, and sometimes even work colleagues in what they call Hanami Parties or cherry blossom viewing parties. And are often celebrated by having food and drinks that complement the cherry blossoms.
And so of course, Starbucks Japan is ready with two new drinks for the cherry blossom season!
Starbucks Japan has two new cherry blossom inspired drinks!
The first one is a Sakura Milk Pudding Frappuccino. And what makes this drink special is that it’s infused with the real extract from cherry tree leaves. As well as a special cherry strawberry sauce, and blended with jelly-pudding. Finally, it’s topped with pink colored roasted rice pieces to add a little crunch!
The second one is Sakura Milk Latte. It’s a beautiful non-coffee pale pink drink that’s made from warm milk and the special cherry strawberry sauce.
The cherry blossom inspired drinks from Starbucks Japan is set to release on February 15. And will only be available until February 25.
