The Azuki Blossom Cream Frappuccino® combines velvety milk and sweet red bean base, topped with whipped cream, white and pink rice blossom petals, and tart dried cranberry bits. Meanwhile, the Matcha Azuki Blossom Cream Frappuccino® which blends the bright flavors of Matcha and sweet red bean. These featured beverages will be available at all Starbucks stores starting March 12.

If you think that’s all, well, Starbucks still has something up its sleeve. Customers who purchase any of the two featured beverages can experience Cherry Blossom at Starbucks. They just have to scan the QR code found in each cup of the Matcha Azuki Blossom Cream Frappuccino® or Azuki Blossom Cream Frappuccino®. After scanning the QR code, they will need to locate the banner with the Cherry Blossom to trigger the AR experience and take their selfies under falling cherry blossoms. Pretty neat, huh?
