Oprah fans know Oprah loves tea. For the first time ever, the Queen of Talk shares her taste in tea with this unprecedented new Chai co-created with the experts from Teavana. Rolling out to Starbucks locations across the country on Tuesday, April 29th, 2014, you’ll have a chance to try your own custom brewed cup of tea. With strong notes of cinnamon, clove, pepper, ginger and cardamom, this instant classic chai is bold with a warm, mellow base holding the flavors together like a loving hug.
We can’t wait for you to try it and tell us what you think! Whether you prefer your tea sweetened or un, hot, iced or lattéd this brew may be your new addiction. From the tea leaves to the lavish, laser cut packaging, this is gloriously delicious and, in true Oprah tradition, a portion of the proceeds of every cup, canister, box and gift set returns to the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation providing educational opportunities for youth.
The car service arrived and whisked us away to an exclusive tasting event on Melrose Avenue in Los Angeles, California while our counterparts on the East Coast sipped and reported the scoop on this new tea in New York City.
Teavana, the 16 year old, 300 store strong, purveyor of fine teas in malls across the US was acquired by coffee behemoth Starbucks in the fall of 2012.
In this first ever collaboration with Oprah, a universally appealing tea was born. Smooth and mellow warmth anchor a robust and spicy symphony of flavors. You can buy in bulk to brew at home, or choose a made to order beverage at your local Starbucks.
Beautiful and delicious, I recommend the Oprah Chai Latté, sweet and skinny. Add gorgeous packaging and perfect pricing and you’ve got an inspired Mother’s Day gift (hint, hint);We were not compensated for this review.
