Starbucks showcases Teavana at London Coffee Festival


From today until 10 April, Starbucks will be offering visitors nine Teavana beverages at the London Coffee Festival – a first in Europe. Teavana brings the highest-quality pure teas and botanicals in the world, chosen with great care and blended for extraordinary flavours to tea lovers, until now only available in the US and Canada.

Charlotta Oldham, Starbucks tea category manager EMEA, said: “We’re proud to showcase our exciting new tea offer coming soon to stores in the UK. Our mission is to create a modern-day tea culture with the highest-quality, most innovative tea products and experiences that we hope our customers will enjoy!”

Starbucks invites visitors to the London Coffee Festival to visit the Starbucks Teavana stand in the Hyde Park area for a chance to try the new teas before some are launched in stores. At the festival, visitors will experience a range of hand-crafted iced shaken teas, hot brewed teas, artisan tea lattes and personal loose leaf tea blending to taste and take-away. Teavana will launch in UK Starbucks stores and across EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) later in the summer.
