Make it a Venti
By: Alea J., Curl News Correspondent
Today is the day, that you can drink tea the Oprah way! That bit of information makes a sistah want to buy like two at a time! I don't know about about you but I'm going hunting for my Oprah Chia today! Starbucks introduced the #OprahChia today in select stores across the country and Canada. Philanthropic acts from the legendary talk show host, business mogul and OWN founder are daily occurrences. However this new business relationship between the Oprah Winfrey and Starbucks family says a lot about their approach to business and willingness to assist in giving back.
For each Teavana Oprah Chia tea product sold, Starbucks will make a donation to the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for girls! Who runs the world? Well apparently Oprah but either way this merger is a great relationship for young women, young brown women! The tea is a blend of cafdamom, loose leaf black tea, ginger and rooibos mixed with a bold kick of cinnamon. They had naturals at TEA! The Teavana #OprahChia product line will feature
A handcrafted Teavana OprahChia latte, a freshly brewed tea, packaged loose teas in various sizes much like the Starbucks signature collections sold in Starbucks stores, Target, Walmart and nearly every coffee section in the US. And of course a full gift set which you all can send to your favorite naruralista, a thank you gift or a phenomenal Mothers Day present.
Oprah is continually making big moves! Retirement has rendered her millions more in several more diverse avenues. The lengths of our fellow natural sister are endless and if being in the limelight of the astounding Oprah Winfrey starts with a trip to Starbucks...make it a Venti!
