Celebrate the Year of the Rat with Starbucks

by - Tuesday, January 21, 2020

Here are three things why I always look forward to the Lunar New Year season — (1) Tikoy, (2) Feng Shui Reading, and (3) Starbucks Lunar New Year merch! It has been a yearly tradition of mine to collect Starbucks CNY mugs since 2018. This time around, each Starbucks branch will be filled with mouse-themed merchandise (including the limited edition mugs) and I'm squeaking in joy and excitement!

ZODIAC RAT CNY MUG

Mickey and Miney Mouse are the only playful rats that I like until I personally got my hands on this cute Zodiac Rat CNY Mug from Starbucks. I mean, who can say no to this uber cute mug?? 😍

Still on the search for a tumbler or mug that you can lug everywhere? These limited edition Lunar New Year tumblers and mugs are nice options to choose from. Featuring their own version of a playful rat, this collection is also full of blossoming cherry and orange trees in bold red, gold and Starbucks green pantones.

YEAR OF THE RAT PAPER CARD

In case you missed it, Starbucks started producing paper cards locally since the holiday season last year. The Starbucks Card collector in me is elated because my favorite coffee shop is becoming more sustainable and mindful of the environment. While paper cards have a few disadvantages (don't place it near your cold drink!), I personally prefer this more than the plastic cards — which accumulates scratches over time.

GUATEMALA ATITLÁN WHOLE BEAN COFFEE

Thanks to Starbucks' coffee lectures in the past, I get to know and appreciate the story behind most of the coffee beans that they source ethically. This time, they're letting me try the Guatemala Atitlán beans - it's orange blossom deepened with notes of sweet caramel. While I swear by coffee with earthy tones, I'm curious to try this variant very soon! ☕
