It’s The Year Of The Rabbit & Starbucks Has The Cutest Merch For It

It’s the Year Of The Rabbit, besties. The Chinese New Year starts on January 22, and Starbucks dropped adorable drinkware to celebrate it. If you’re Starbucks-obsessed, or a friend of a coffee fiend, you have to hop on this trend. Your cabinet is probably crammed full of bejeweled tumblers and holiday mugs, however, it would be a serious misfortune not to add one of these cuddly-cute specialty items to your already lovely collection. 

This Lunar year, it’s the rabbit’s time to shine. The rabbit is the luckiest sign in the 12 Chinese Zodiac symbols, meant to foster hope, prosperity, and calmness. According to the Chinese Zodiac, 2023 is going to be a yin year: a year characterized by passive goodness; something college students could all use after the chaos of the last couple of pandemic years. This year, rather than unstable havoc, anticipate a vibe of gentleness, tranquility, and good fortune. This year’s auspicious Chinese rabbit says you can expect that the best is yet to come. What better way to relax with open palms and let the good times roll than by sipping an oat milk latte out of Starbucks’ latest and cutest (IMO) specialty mugs?

You can grab these mugs in any local Starbucks store while supplies last. So, take some time on your next lunch break to snag one of your own!
