Starbucks is getting the hang of riding on the cherry blossom season to launch beautiful merchandise and special drinks. So instead of having strawberry flavour in their whipped cream, it is now in the main beverage, together with honey-infused whipped cream and some crispy rice and dried strawberries sprinkled on top.

This drink reminded me of a sweetened strawberry milk like what we usually get from supermarkets. While Starbucks would have nailed it if their customers like pink, sweets and strawberry milk, I thought that it was a tad too sweet for me for some reason. So I wonder if it was really an ideal choice as a “cherry blossom” special. Could have been better if some bits were blended in the drink to give a little more crunch or texture.
