Meet the two new springtime favourites from Starbucks Malaysia – Matcha Azuki Blossom Crème Frappuccino® and Azuki Blossom Crème Frappuccino® blended beverages – which combines two of the most beloved tastes in Asia: Matcha and Azuki (red bean).
For the first time in Malaysia, Starbucks will also be offering Coconut Milk at all its stores nationwide.
It joins almond milk and soy milk as customisable milk options for its beverages, which will allow customers to rediscover popular favourites like caramel macchiato in its new coconut milk or almond milk form.
Check these new drinks out:
1. Azuki Blossom Crème Frappuccino® blended beverages
Frappuccino® lovers can celebrate the return of the cherry blossoms with this decadent beverage. Featuring creamy milk blended with ice and red bean to create an earthy but sweet treat.
Topped with Azuki and fluffy whipped cream, with falling petals of white and pink rice blossom petals and tart cranberry bites.
2. Matcha Azuki Blossom Crème Frappuccino®
It gets better for Matcha fans, the new Matcha Azuki Blossom Crème Frappuccino features the creamy and deliciously bright flavors of matcha and savoury red bean, topped with pink and white rice puffs and cranberry bits that cascades over the whipped cream and red beans – capturing the season’s fleeting beauty in a cup.
BONUS: Caramel Macchiato (with Almond Milk or Coconut Milk)
The delicious, multi-layered Caramel Macchiato begins with milk steamed until it’s smooth followed by a rich espresso shot poured through the milk foam and finished with a crosshatch of caramel sauce for an oh-so-sweet finish.
Adding a twist to the all-time classic, this popular beverage can now be customised with almond milk, or for the first time in Malaysia, coconut milk. The Caramel Macchiato is available hot, iced and blended.
In celebration of the cherry blossom season, Starbucks Malaysia has also planted Artificial Reality (AR) Sakura Trees in all its stores.
Leveraging on Facebook’s AR Camera technology, Starbucks brings to life Japan’s famous cherry blossom trees into its stores through three phases: budding, in-bloom and full bloom.
Customers in Malaysia can now witness the exquisite and graceful beauty of the cascading sakura, while sipping on their favourite springtime beverages.
All beverages will be available in stores from 26 March 2019 onward and starting from RM17.50.
