Starbucks is offering a new Teavana iced tea for the warm, sunny days ahead. Starting tomorrow (July 12), participating stores in the United States and Canada will introduce the Teavana® Shaken Berry Sangria Herbal Tea.
“Summer is a time to connect with friends and family and spend quality time together,” said Melynda Cheng from Teavana’s tea development team. “We were inspired by the medley of fruit flavors that are often at their peak ripeness and juiciness during the summer.”
The beverage starts with freshly brewed Teavana® Iced Passion Tango™ Tea – a blend of hibiscus, lemongrass and apple flavors – and Sangria syrup which contains a blend of peach, elderberry, blood orange and raspberry flavors. The tea is then hand-shaken with black berries, orange slices, apple juice, and ice for a refreshingly vibrant tea with a sweet and tart finish.
Customers can also try a sparkling version at stores in the U.S. Sunbelt states (southern half of the continental United States and Hawaii) that offer handcrafted sparkling beverages made on the Fizzio® machine. Starbucks Rewards members will get a first taste of the new Teavana® Shaken Berry Sangria Herbal Tea today (July 11), one of the many benefits available to Starbucks Rewards members. If you’re not yet a member, you can join here.
Teavana Shaken Berry Sangria Herbal Tea is one of many ways to enjoy iced tea at Starbucks this summer, including Teavana® Shaken Iced Mango Black Tea Lemonade and Teavana® Shaken Iced Peach Green Tea. Customers can also enjoy Youthberry® White Tea Granita as part of Starbucks Sunset Menu after 3 p.m.
