Starbucks China – Olympic Series

When I posted the previous two entries about the latest mugs & tumblers of Starbucks, I thought it was just a new release.  However, as I get to know the baristas at the store near my home, they told me that each city hosting the Olympic Games in China has a new design for their mug, tumbler and demitasse collection.  It’s not really with the Olympic logo and all as that’s copyrighted and Starbucks ain’t a sponsor.

The 6 Olympic cities are Beijing, Shanghai, Tianjin, Qingdao, Shenyang (Qinghuangdao) and Hong Kong.  Of course, the country where they are located has it’s own design as well.

The demitasse set is a 2 mini-mug (3 oz) set of a city and the country design.  The different sets are available in Beijing.  The city tumblers are quite difficult to purchase but you can be assured only of the Beijing, China and Tianjin.  The mugs are a hit and miss here in Beijing.   Some store carry all mugs while the others just carry Beijing, China and Tianjin.

For my friends in the Philippines who would like to collect them, I have a friend going home on the 28th of September.  I would be willing to assist you with your collection for a minor increase to cover my expense in purchasing and sending it over to the Philippines.  Send me a comment for details.
