As mentioned in our previous blog post, Koreans celebrate spring with various kinds of cherry blossom beverages. Coffee shops all across the country will promote various lines of cherry blossom flavored drinks, whether it’s a coffee, latte, frappe, smootie or even a flavor of an ice cream.

As you can see below, Starbucks Korea launched the Cherry Blossom + White chocolate ice blended frappe (such a long name~). These sorts of beverages are common here in Korea during the spring (and most likely in Japan as well). But do cherry blossom flavored goods exist in other parts of the world? For our Collectors who might find it nearly impossible to experience this taste because your local Starbucks or any other regional coffee chains do not offer such things — well, we have good news for you. You all have the opportunity to try it at home.

The Cherry Blossom Latte Mix Powder (by TACO) is included in the 2017 April Collection. This is the key ingredient for replicating the experience of Korea’s trendy spring beverages. We’ve provided different recipes below. Remember, these are only tips and leads to spark inspirations of what you can make at home. We encourage you to get creative. Apply this ingredient in smoothies or DIY ice cream. You can even add this product when you’re baking as well. Go crazy and share your own recipes with us and the rest of the Hallyupedia Collectors on Instagram (#aprilcollection). Enjoy!
