Doutor Coffee sakura range includes marshmallow and cherry blossom mochi drinks and more
In Japan, spring means being taken in a rosy shower of flower-inspired treats at convenience stores, supermarkets, and cafes. In particular, the various coffee chains seem to be at a sakura stalemate, vying to create the most spring-friendly range possible.
One of the Japanese coffee chains, Doutor Coffee, is no exception. Their sakura menu includes drinks and desserts with sweet ingredients perfect for the season.
The ice cream sakura is particularly photogenic, with marshmallow petals and shiny edible pearls sprinkled over whipped cream, and a sauce made from sakura petal paste. The drink also has mochi warabi into the mixture, to add a spongy texture.
The hot version of the milk sakura is just as adorable, with the same ingredients and decorations, but without the mochi.
These pink drinks would pair perfectly with any of the sakura-inspired desserts. There’s a sakura mont blanc, with sakura and strawberry cream piled on top of a pie crust.
Or if you like traditional Japanese desserts, there is also a sakura dorayakicontainer of sakura leaf filling, sakura daifuku and red bean paste.
You can even get Doutor’s take on the season at home, by cutting a bag of their sakura roast coffee.
It can be purchased as a set with their take-out sakura baumkuchen only.
This multitude of spring treats will be released from February 24 at Doutor branches across Japan. The lineup was billed as the first drop of Doutor’s Sakura Fair, so cherry blossom superfans can be on the lookout for even more to come.
