Starbucks Introduces Iced Tea Infusions


TORONTO — Starbucks has launched a new take on iced tea with its Teavana Shaken Iced Tea Infusions.

The new tea beverage is made without artificial flavours and sweeteners and features tea, fruit and botanical blends and liquid cane sugar. The new Pineapple Black Tea, Peach Citrus White Tea and Strawberry Green Tea will be available year-round at participating Starbucks locations in the U.S. and Canada. Customers will also be able to customize any iced beverage with pineapple, peach citrus or strawberry flavours.

“We realized we could appeal to our tea customers looking for ways to customize their tea just as coffee drinkers do with their espresso beverages,” says Melynda Cheng, Starbucks product developer. “Unlocking tea from sweetness and honing in on flavour was one way to achieve this goal.”

Starbucks will celebrate the launch with a “Free-Tea Friday” offer on July 14.
