Oprah Chai Tea Arrives at Starbucks and Teavana Stores
Posted on April 29, 2014
Oprah Chai Tea has arrived a Starbucks and Teavana stores. The new tea offering was personally developed by Oprah Winfrey in close collaboration with Teavana's leading tea teaologist. The tea features a bold infusion of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and cloves, blended with loose-leaf black tea and rooibos. It is available as a latte or loose-leaf tea in Starbucks stores and as a loose-leaf tea and brewed tea in Teavana locations.
The tea deal between Starbucks and Oprah was announced in March. Starbucks says it will make a donation for each Teavana Oprah Chai Tea product sold to benefit educational opportunities for youth through the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation.
Oprah said in a statement, "For years I have been steeping my own tea as part of my morning ritual, and I am very excited that starting today, Teavana Oprah Chai is available in Starbucks and Teavana stores across the country. This new partnership came from an organic space as the mission of our two companies are naturally aligned – we both want to inspire and nurture the human spirit. The best part is, a donation from every sale will go to support youth education starting today."
