For 2019 Starbucks pair two popular pink flavors, cherry blossom and strawberries. The "SAKURAFUL Milk Latte" has a light sakura flavor and is described as tasting like spring. It is topped with whipped cream and strawberry chocolate shavings and chocolate sakura flavored petals. This drink is meant to capture the moment when a gentle wind blows through the cherry blossoms and they are slowly falling down.

The sakura flavored base of the "SAKURAFUL Frappuccino" is placed on top of red and pink strawberry jelly. This creates a combination of creamy and springy textures when you drink it through the straw. The Frappuccino is also topped with whipped cream, strawberry chocolate shavings, and sakura flavored chocolate petals. It represents the cherry blossoms floating in a river.
