Springtime Favourites at Full Bloom in Starbucks Malaysia

Days since my last post: 11 

Springtime is now at full bloom in Starbucks Malaysia as they're introducing 2 brand new additions to their line up of drinks. Inspired by the ever beautiful Sakura aka cherry blossoms of Japan, the Azuki Blossom Crème Frappuccino® and Matcha Azuki Blossom Crème Frappuccino® will officially be made available in stores nationwide by the 26th of March.

Ice blended to perfection, just right for a hot day in Malaysia

On the left is the Azuki Blossom Crème Frappuccino® - a combination of creamy milk blended with ice and red bean to create an earthy but sweet treat. It is then topped with Azuki aka red bean and fluffy whipped cream, finish with petals of white and pink rice blossom petals with tart cranberry bites. 

On the right features the Matcha Azuki Blossom Crème Frappuccino® - a twist for fans who are all for Matcha. It combines the taste of the Matcha Frappuccino® we all know and love from Starbucks Malaysia together with earthy tastes of savoury red beans, before being topped with a generous amounts of whipped cream, red beans, and pink and white rice blossom petals to finish. 

As I was there for their media preview special, I was honored to have been able to try both drinks several days earlier and my personal favourite had to be the Matcha Azuki Blossom Crème Frappuccino®. For starters, matcha and red bean is a sure win combination and when you bite into the crispy rice puffs through each sip - it's just something you can't deny is amazing.

And if having Sakura inspired drinks aren't enough for you, Starbucks Malaysia has also planted Artificial Reality (AR) Sakura Trees in all of its stores so you can sip on your favourite springtime beverages while enjoying the "bloom" of the Japanese cherry blossom. To experience this, users simply need to scan the Cherry Blossom stickers around any of their nearby Starbucks Malaysia stores and the AR experience will be right at your fingertips. It leverages on the Facebook AR technology, and you can then snap pictures to share with your friends - it's almost like you're in Japan without going through a 7-hour flight.

It was truly an eventful afternoon at the media preview as we were also offered first hand information that coconut milk will soon be available at Starbucks Malaysia stores - on top of the usual offerings of regular milk, soymilk, and almond milk. This however is a gradual roll out for their stores and should be available nationwide by the first week of April. I personally enjoyed the nutty hints of the almond milk in their classical Caramel Macchiato and would definitely be asking for this option from hereon out whenever I visit Starbucks Malaysia.
