Tea shop coming this fall from Starbucks
Starbucks Corp. is planning to open its first Tazo tea shop this fall.
The Seattle-based cafe chain says the store will open near its headquarters and will include a tea bar where customers can blend their own tea mixes with the help of a store worker the company is calling a “tea partner.”
The store will offer more than 80 varieties of loose-leaf tea, tea lattes and iced teas, as well as packaged chocolates, infused sugars and honeys. Pastries and other food will also be served, as in the company’s coffee shops. It will not be branded with Starbucks’ “green dot” logo.
