Today was the day Oprah debuted her special blend of Chai tea at Starbucks and Teavana locations across the U.S. and Canada. When I heard about this, I was amazed that her influence is now at one of my favorite spots but then excited to try it because I have been on a whole chai tea latte kick lately. It seriously has replaced my coffee. We all know Lady O. loves herself some tea, so the partnership makes total sense. And I love how diverse her reach is. The Oprah Chai Tea is a distinctive blend featuring a bold infusion of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and cloves that is blended with loose-leaf black tea and rooibos. You can get it as a brewed tea, chai tea latte (blended with milk), or loose-leaf tea that you can brew at home. The best part, besides a new tea for us tea lovers to drink, is that the indulgence will be for a worthy cause. Starting today, Starbucks will make a donation for each Teavana Oprah Chai Tea product sold to benefit educational opportunities for youth through the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation. Time to get my Chai on with Oprah!
