Media mogul and philanthropist, Oprah Winfrey is joining forces with Starbucks. This is one collaboration that we did not see coming. Starbucks, in an unusual collaboration is teaming with Oprah to create Teavana Oprah Chai tea.
This was announced at the Starbucks annual meeting on Wednesday 19 March 2014 in Seattle. The media mogul has collaborated with Starbucks and the tea experts at Teavana to create her own signature chai blend. The tea is described as a bold infusion of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and cloves, blended with loose-leaf black tea and rooibos.
Beginning April 29, customers will be able to walk into Starbucks and Teavana stores across the United States and Canada and order Teavana Oprah Chai Tea. The teas will be sold as lattes or in loose-leaf tea formats. Starbucks will make a donation to the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation for each product sold.
