Starbucks to Give Oprah Her Own Tea Blend

oprah-ownStarting April 29, Oprah fans can get a little closer to the media maven by drinking tea bearing her name. Starbucks has announced that Teavana Oprah Chai Tea will be sold in Starbucks and Teavana locations across the country at the end of next month.

Oprah worked with a teaologist (kids, don’t tell your parents this is what you’re studying at college) to create the blend, which is described as “a bold infusion of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and cloves, blended with loose-leaf black tea and rooibos.” Who doesn’t love rooibos?

A portion of the sales of Teavana Oprah Chai will go to Oprah’s Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation.

If each bag of the tea doesn’t feature Oprah’s face, Starbucks made a big mistake.
