Oprah tweeted a cryptic message on Tuesday night revealing she had a new project that she was ready to announce.
I have some O so fun news to tell you tomorrow. It’s something I've been working on it for awhile, now It's ready and so am I.
— Oprah Winfrey (@Oprah) March 18, 2014
The announcement has been made and it’s something we would have never guessed. Mama O teamed up with Starbucks for her very own Teavana Oprah Chai Tea!
Beginning April 29, Teavana Oprah Chai will be sold in Starbucks and Teavana stores across the U.S. and Canada, with Starbucks making a donation for each product sold to the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation to benefit educational opportunities for youth.
“I looove tea,” said Oprah Winfrey. “My daily tea ritual is a vital part of my morning. Savory and spicy chai, with its deep flavor, has long been a favorite of mine. When Howard Schultz offered to have me come into the Starbucks tasting room and create my very own tea blend, I thought that sounded like such a unique opportunity and fun to the tenth power. To share one of my favorite things with the rest of the world and support youth education at the same time is truly the perfect blend.”
Oprah personally developed the tea with Teavana’s leading teaologist Naoko Tsunoda. The flavor of the tea consists of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and cloves, blended with loose-leaf black tea and rooibos.
We can’t wait to get our hands on some!
