Pretty in Pink: New Teavana Tea Lattes Debut in Canada and Europe

They have been described as ‘like cashmere,’ or a ‘hug in a cup.’ Starbucks customers in Canada and Europe 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.

In Canada, customers can enjoy four new Teavana tea lattes, including the Canadian exclusive Teavana™ Blossoming Rose Tea Latte, with a sprinkle of pink floral crystals. In select stores in Europe, customers can enjoy three new Teavana tea lattes, including the market exclusive Teavana™ Red Apple Rooibos Tea Latte, topped with apple blossom dust.

The new tea lattes join Starbucks portfolio of tea beverages in stores around the world, including shaken iced teas and brewed teas. Customers in the United States can enjoy a variety of tea lattes including Chai Tea Latte, Lightly Sweet Chai Tea Latte, Matcha Green Tea Latte, Royal English Breakfast Tea Latte and London Fog Tea Latte.

Teavana Blossoming Rose Tea Latte (Canada)

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 flavor 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 flavored rose and hibiscus crystals delicately sprinkled on top for a fabulous floral finish. Available in participating stores in Canada.

Teavana Red Apple Rooibos Tea Latte (Europe)

A combination of red apple syrup and a delicate apple blossom dust complements this blend, creating a slightly sweeter and fruity version of the Rooibos Tea Latte. The seasonal apple flavor is enhanced by freeze-dried apples, sprinkled on top of the latte as ‘red apple dust,’ creating the perfect drink for a spring-time photo. This caffeine-free latte is available in participating markets in Europe for a limited time only.
