Starbucks is famously known for its coffee and delicious Frappuccinos, but there is still plenty to offer its tea fiends.
With spring officially here, Starbucks announced in a press release Monday it is celebrating the start of a new season with a refreshing line of new Teavana tea beverages that will join the beloved coffeehouse’s year-round menu.
The drinks include a Teavana Shaken Iced White Tea and Teavana Lightly Sweet Chai Tea Latte, along with the regional rollout of ready-to-drink Teavana Craft Iced Teas made available at all stores in the northeastern United States.
Deemed “soft and delicate,” Starbucks states their Teavana Shaken Iced White Tea is freshly steeped, then shaken with ice for a crisp, subtly sweet refreshment.
If you are still missing that romance of winter and in dire need of less sweet take of the Starbucks classic Teavana Classic Chai Tea Latte, their Teavana Lightly Sweet Chai Tea is the winner. Infused with cinnamon, cloves and other warming spices, this black tea blends steamed milk and sweetened gently with Liquid Cane Sugar for a comfort that just warms your core.
Of course, as with all Teavana Shaken Iced Teas, customers can ask to craft their beverage unsweetened or sweetened. In a groundbreaking announcement, the Seattle-based company also stated they would now only use Liquid Cane Sugar in all iced teas and tea lemonades, as the subtle flavors complement tea quite fittingly.
And for those tea lovers on the go, customers can try new vibrant flavors of their ready-to-drink Craft Iced Teas, available in three refreshing flavors: Mango Black Tea, Passion Tango Herbal Tea and Peach Green Tea. The teas are free of artificial flavors, 100 calories or less and inspired by Teavana’s most popular tea blends.
Once we get our hands on these, those gray skies will certainly clear up! Which drinks are you looking forward to trying this spring?
