To celebrate National Iced Tea Day, Starbucks and Teavana are offering customers three exclusive offers starting June 10 at participating specialty retail Teavana stores and Starbucks locations in the U.S.

Visit Teavana Stores for a Chance to Win 365 Days of Teavana 

For three consecutive weekends in June starting on June 10, customers can visit any specialty retail Teavana® store for the chance to win free tea for an entire year*, no purchase necessary.

“Free tea for a year at Teavana is the perfect way to experience some  of our pure loose leaf teas and herbal infusions and try your hand at creating a custom blend as well,” said Naoko Tsunoda, director, Global Tea Quality and Development. “It’s a great way to build your tea expertise and take a stab at being a mixologist.”

The Tea Good to Be True Instant Win game pieces will be distributed by partners (employees) in Teavana specialty retail stores the weekend of June 10-12, June 17-19 and June 24-26, while game piece supplies last. Ten customers, per distribution period, will win the grand prize of tea for a year, for a total of 30 Grand Prize winners. Every customer who receives an Instant Win game piece will benefit from a percentage off select Teavana teas and merchandise or a chance to win one 20 ounce iced tea**.

On June 10, Teavana stores will also be offering complimentary samples of iced tea including:

Raspberry Limeade Tea Blend – A beautiful balanced myriad of berries with an elegant balsamic finish blended with a burst of lime.

Pineapple Berry Blue Tea Blend – Juicy, vibrant berry flavors blend beautifully with tropical sweet pineapple to create a flavorful and balanced blend that is perfect for iced tea. It’s a blend of Blueberry Bliss and Pineapple Kona Pop that bursts with the tangy-sweet flavor of hibiscus, citrus and bold berry.

Golden Monkey Strawberry Lemonade Tea – Inspired by Teavana’s favorite tastes of summer, this invigorating blend is the perfect way to beat the heat. Black tea, strawberries and refreshing citrus combine to create a cannonball-sized splash of iced tea flavor.

“We encourage customers to try different iced tea blends in our stores. You can explore different flavors, some you may not have considered on your own. This is the best way to uncover a new favorite tea," Tsunoda said. "When you visit a Teavana store, spend time with one of our partners to learn about the range of tea flavors like berry, citrus, minty, dessert or spice profiles that appeal to your tastes,"

Tea for Two at Starbucks Stores

Customers can share tea with a friend or family member at the Buy One, Share One Teavana Shaken Iced Tea Event at participating Starbucks® stores in the U.S. on June 10.

“Whether you’re new to tea or a tea enthusiast, that first sip of delicious, loose leaf iced tea immediately transforms the way one thinks about this refreshing beverage,” said Tsunoda. “The delicious, bold, exotic flavors are perfect for celebrating summer with family and friends.”

Tsunoda recommends two tea beverages to try at Starbucks:

Teavana® Shaken Iced Mango Black Tea Lemonade – A delicious blend of premium black tea, juicy mango, sweet passion fruit and a splash of lemonade.

Teavana® Shaken Iced Peach Green Tea – Green tea, sweet peach, and ginger layered together for a taste that’s peachy keen.
