Starbucks Canada Does Blossoming Peach Tea Latte For Lunar New Year


Blooming tea is a type of Chinese tea made from dried flowers that “bloom” when steeped in water. They’re typically lighter in fragrance and taste and look best when poured from glass tea pots. Of course, Starbucks’ westernized rendition is nothing like that at all, but at least it probably tastes good?

According to Brand Eating, Starbucks’ Blossoming Peach Tea Latte is based on a similar drink from Starbucks China, and features earl grey, peach syrup, steamed milk, whipped cream, and peach blossom sugar crystals. It’s available at select locations in Canada’s bookends, Vancouver and Toronto, until February 16, in commemoration of the Lunar New Year.

And to think, all we got was a measly new gift card, sigh.

Burger King Singapore Striking Gold Burgers Are Covered in Three Different Kinds of Cheese


In preparation for the upcoming Lunar New Year, Burger King Singapore has rolled out a set of “golden” burgers that are almost too pretty to eat . . . considering they’re drenched in three different kinds of OOEY, GOOEY CHEESE.

Available for a limited time, the burgers come with either two beef or fried beef patties which are then smothered in nacho, Swiss, and American cheese and sandwiched beneath a sesame seed bun.

The ad campaign takes its cues from the movies, adorning titles like “Golden Cheese Award 2014” and “Cheesiest BK Burger 2014” with those iconic indie festival laurel leaves and awarding the burgers “5 stars.”

So uh, how do we get in on some of that decadence, hm?
