Tea Reimagined | Starbucks Teavana

My obsession with Starbucks started around 2012 when my BFF, Tricia introduced the Signature Iced Chocolate [with hazelnut syrup and non-fat milk] to me — I wasn’t really  (at that time). Over time, I started to love coffee — hello, Iced Caramel Macchiato and Iced Matcha Latte! <3 I haven’t changed my order ever since!  Well, not until the new Teavana came out!

Starbucks Unveils New Modern Tea Experience with Starbucks® Teavana™ Handcrafted Beverages and Full Leaf Tea Sachets in Asia 

Innovative iced beverages with bold, layered flavors now handcrafted at Starbucks® stores

…more than 6,200 Starbucks stores across the China / Asia Pacific region, including the Philippines. This modern tea experience gives customers the opportunity to enjoy a range of unique iced and hot tea beverages with bold, layered flavors, handcrafted the way only Starbucks can, for the first time.


I asked the barista if I can doodle on my own cup and he happily obliged! I think I should doodle on my cups more often!? Yup, I have Sharpies in my bag, lol!teavana-1

My favourite from the Starbucks® Teavana™ line — Matcha & Espresso Fusion! I was a bit iffy the first time I decided to try it. I love matcha and coffee, but a fusion? Hmm. I’m so glad I tried it though! It tastes more like matcha but with a subtle hint of coffee.


These, I haven’t tried but if you enjoy drinking tea, they released 4 interesting flavours as are available in all Starbucks branches! 🙂 I’m trying these out this weekend!

“The launch of Starbucks® Teavana™ brings an entirely new tea occasion specifically developed for our customers in Asia, who increasingly want new and different tastes and experiences,” said John Culver, group president, Starbucks Global Retail. ”With Starbucks® Teavana™, we see a tremendous opportunity to leverage the company’s expertise in creating best-in-class retail experiences, handcrafting customized beverages, and sourcing the finest ingredients, to create a new, premium tea experience. Just as we’ve done for coffee, this is tea reimagined at Starbucks.”

ENGLISH BREAKFAST

A handcrafted blend of Indian Assam, Sri Lankan Ceylon and Chinese black tea. This tastes great with or without milk.

EMPEROR’S CLOUDS & MIST™

Exclusively harvested during the month of April and grown on the steep, windy slopes of Huangshan Mountain at 3,500 feet above sea level, this tea has a rich body and a naturally sweet flavor.

YOUTHBERRY™

Inspired by super fruits, acai fruit is blended with tropical pineapple and mango flavors with high quality white tea, balanced by rosehips and tart green apple.

HIBISCUS

Bright, juicy papaya and mango combined with citrus lemongrass for a naturally caffeine-free blend. Hibiscus flowers lend the tea a slight tartness and extraordinary deep fuchsia color.

Teavana continues to be a strategic priority for Starbucks. Starbucks acquired Teavana Holdings, Inc. in December 2012, and together provide unparalleled expertise in the super premium tea category, bringing exotic blends, great flavors, wellness and innovation to customers globally.

The launch of Starbucks® Teavana™ is the first time Starbucks has launched a brand on this scale since 2008 with the launch of Starbucks VIA® Ready Brew, and represents an important growth opportunity for the business.

In addition to handcrafted beverages, Starbucks is also introducing Starbucks® Teavana™ Full Leaf Tea Sachets. Through a curated selection of packaged full leaf tea sachets, customers now can now enjoy a new tea experience in our stores or in the comfort of their own home through a contemporary at-home experience.

Caffeine-Free Herbal Teas

Hibiscus – Bright, juicy papaya and mango combined with citrus lemongrass for a naturally caffeine-free blend. Hibiscus flowers lend the tea a slight tartness and extraordinary deep fuchsia color.

Mint Blend – This tea’s spearmint base is rounded out with cool peppermint notes and undertones of spicy-sweet lemon verbena. The mint leaves come from the highly sought after and prized Pacific Northwest mint known for its high amount of mint oil.

Chamomile – The Chamomile used for this tea is sourced from Croatia. It provides the overarching flavor for this soft, soothing floral blend.
