On April 29, 2014, Starbucks launched Teavana Oprah Chai Tea. Oprah, who has a personal passion for tea, teamed up with Teavana Teaologists to create this one of a kind blend. The tea features a bold infusion of cinnamon, ginger, cardamon blended with black tea and rooibos. Customers can enjoy the blend as a handcrafted latte or loose-leaf tea in Starbucks across the U.S and Cananda. The best part is, with every purchase, you will be supporting a great cause!
In addition to the tea sounding absolutely delicious, Starbucks will make a donation for every Oprah Chai Tea purchase to Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation which aims to support youth education. The foundation supports youth education through Girls Inc, National CARES mentoring movement, Pathways to College and the US Dream Academy.
Oprah stated “This new partnership came from an organic space as the mission of two companies are naturally aligned. The best part is, a donation from every sale will go to support youth education starting today.”
Donations include: $0.25 for each Oprah Chai Tea handcrafted beverage, $1 per 2 oz Teavana Oprah Chai Tea, $1 for Teavana Oprah Chai Tea tin and $4 for every Large gift set. Now, I am sure I do not have to remind you that Mother’s Day is May 11th, the gift set is gorgeous and would make for a very nice gift.
