I'm so happy to announce that the merge has started to look the way that I imagined. Starbucks is now selling Teavana Tea in their stores. I liked the Tazo tea brand Starbucks use to sell for an on the go quick tea stop. Now, however, you can have an on the go quick tea stop, but with an even higher quality of tea.
Starbucks now have many more favors then they had with Tazo teas. My favorite is still Earl Grey by far. It's a black tea with a wonderful bergamot favor. It's a great tea for a midday caffeine pick me up. The bergamot flavor makes the tea more exciting than a traditional malty black tea. The other day I had a cup of starbucks Earl Grey on the table with the top off while getting my nails done, my manicurist asked what favor of tea that I was drinking? "It smells so good," she added.
herbal teas are Pineapple Kona Pop, Youthberry, Mint Majesty and Peach Tranquility which I often have at bedtime.
The green teas are Citrus Mint and Emperor's Clouds Mist Royal. The black teas in addition to Earl Grey are English Breakfast, and you know I start my morning each day with English Breakfast and last but certainly not least, you can now have the great Oprah Chai as a straight tea rather than a latte. You can read my review on Oprah Chai Here.
Additionally, you can also purchase these teas in the loose leaf form already pre-package at Starbucks. What I love the most about the merge, you can use your Starbucks card at both sores to earn your star. You can also reload your card at Teavnana. Now your reward goes either further; you can get your rewards in both stores and you have the choice to get something to drink or you can get 2 oz's of loose tea at Teavana.
Now that you know the law of the land in Starbucks and Teavana Land, Happy Cuppa! And don't forget to take some time to Steep Your Soul.
