Pretty in Pink: New Teavana Tea Lattes Debut in Canada


They have been described as ‘like cashmere,’ or a ‘hug in a cup.’ Starbucks customers in Canada can enjoy a new lineup of smooth and creamy Teavana tea latte beverages in participating stores, made with premium whole-leaf microground tea, steamed milk and lightly sweetened.

Canadian customers can enjoy four new Teavana tea lattes, including the Canadian exclusive Teavana™ Blossoming Rose Tea Latte, with a sprinkle of pink floral crystals. The new tea lattes join Starbucks portfolio of tea beverages in stores around the world, including shaken iced teas and brewed teas.

Teavana Blossoming Rose Tea Latte

Inspired by Japanese sakura tea, a rose syrup was created that’s reminiscent of rose water and added rhubarb bitters and a hint of strawberry jam. The blossoming rose flavour pairs perfectly with the natural red-hue of rooibos tea but can be added to black and matcha tea as well. This latte looks as luscious as it tastes thanks to naturally flavoured rose and hibiscus crystals delicately sprinkled on top for a fabulous floral
finish.

Teavana Tea Latte Favorites

In addition to the rosy limited-time flavors, stores will also offer classic Teavana tea lattes, loved by Starbucks customers around the world.

Black Tea: A malty and sweet blend from India, Kenya and Sri Lanka.

Matcha Tea: This new blend features subtle floral notes and a rich vegetal taste, with a sweet lingering finish, sourced from Japan, China, and Korea.

Rooibos Tea: Sourced from South Africa, this naturally caffeine-free herbal tea features a vanilla, honey-like aroma, with hints of caramel and malt for a slight sweetness.
