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.
