Although tea is an option on Starbucks‘ menu, most people visit the coffee giant to get just that—coffee! The coffee giant, however, is beginning to place a greater emphasis on it’s Tazo line of teas.
Starbuck’s recently announced that they will open their first tea store later this year!
I am happy to hear that a greater emphasis is going to be placed on tea. I’ve said it for years — there really needs to be a drive-thru tea store. Although I do not know whether or not this will be the case (drive-thru), I am happy to learn that a major coffee retailer is now paying attention to the joys of tea. Starbuck’s has offered several tea drinks to it’s customers for years, however, their major sale is coffee. Now, us tea drinkers can look forward to something new!!
