This is the first time I really, really wanted to get a Starbucks tumbler – in fact all tumblers in the collection. The regular ones are quite nice, but expensive. Sure, I have bought two or three in the past, but this latest collection of theirs – for the most part, exclusive to Japan or to certain Asian markets – is just too pretty to pass up, and it’s so tempting to collect them all.
Introducing the Starbucks Sakura 2013 Collection: a series of tumblers and mugs decorated with those delicate, white-pink cherry blossoms…
And here are a few food items, also being sold in Japan:
It seems that the tumblers and mugs are in demand outside the US because I’ve seen them being sold for more than what they actually cost!
The ceramic tumbler above is available in Singapore, but not in Japan. I recently saw it, as well as a few from the Sakura Japan collection above, in a local Starbucks. The ceramic tumbler retails for PHP595; I forgot to take note of the cost of the other tumblers, but I believe they are around that price.
What do you think of the Starbucks Sakura 2013 Collection?
