We mentioned in our previous article that Starbucks unveiled their first drink for the 2019 Sakura season and – as we said – there would be others to follow. Now it;s the time for us to present the new Sakura Frappuccino!
This year is inspired by the flowers in full bloom and is called Sakura Mankai Moments and the range of drinks i named Sakuraful, to reflect the "full bloom" (translation of the Japanese Mankai).
First, the Sakuraful Milk Latte representing the moment the petals from the cheery blossoms dance in the wind while falling from the trees. The topping is made by strawberry chocolate shavings , while the drink has a milk base blended with strawberry and sakura.
The Sakuraful Frappuccino is representing the petals in full bloom while they are on the water's surface. The base is made with sakura-strawberry sauce and the drink contains sakura jelly and strawberry jelly pieces that give an interesting taste and texture to it.
The Latte will be available from February 15th to March 19th while the Frappuccino will be only until February 27th, so make sure you don't miss out your chance to try them out!
