Now Blooming: Starbucks Sakura Drink and Products

Starbucks Spring Season Blend

Spring season is coming next month but some Cherry Trees already bloomed. Just like Sakura drinks in Starbucks were already released. I decided to taste the Sakura Milk Pudding Frappuccino last week because, like the famous cherry tree, it will only bloom within a limited window. This particular blend is until February 25 only.

Have you ever been to a Starbucks Reserve Roastery?

I haven't! As a Starbucks lover, you probably know that there are 5 Starbucks Roastery in the world, right?  Well, the biggest happens to be here in Tokyo and right by the Meguro River!

I thought I can finally visit it last week but it was a Saturday and despite all the warnings of a virus, nothing can stop coffee lovers from lining up!

Well, I generally dislike long lines when I'm with an impatient child so maybe I'll come back on a weekday.  We ended up going to Starbucks Naka-Meguro station. 

I enjoyed it. After all, Sakura is pink. I don't know... pink is my happy color!

My default size is grande but I was surprised that you can only order the drink tall size at 590 yen.  I paired it with a cake called The Chocolat for Lucas.

The pink hue was just gorgeous.  At the top are rice puffs that resembled sakura petals and were crunchy. At the bottom, you can taste the rich milk pudding which has a fun texture. I thought they were just regular jellies.

It was refreshing but it left me shivering as it was still technically winter and we sat outside.
