I participated in an Influencer Activation Program on behalf of Mom Central Consulting (#MC) for Starbucks. I received a promotional item and a gift card to facilitate my review.
Have you heard about the new collaboration between Oprah and Starbucks? I have to say anytime someone mention Starbucks, my ears perk – it’s a total treat that I like to indulge in every once in awhile. But when someone mentions Oprah, my whole body turns to listen. Now put them together and I was at Starbucks waiting to hear about Oprah five minutes before you stopped talking about the collaboration!
But seriously, I am a huge fan of Oprah so when she speaks, I listen. And lately she’s talking Chai Tea. Now, I admit that when I treat myself to Starbucks I usually bypass the teas and go straight for a Java Chip Frappucino, but I couldn’t pass up on Oprah Chai Tea! That’s why I met a lovely friend at a local Starbucks today to try out the new beverage collaboration from Miss Winfrey!
It was warm this afternoon so we both wanted something to cool down. I had to try the Iced Teavana Oprah Chai Tea Latte [try to say that 3 times fast - our barista could!] and she had the Teavana Shaken Iced Passion Tango Tea Lemonade! I was in heaven. Not only did the Teavana Oprah Chai Tea Latte cool me down – it was just sweet enough to hit the normal Starbucks spot for me. Plus, with every sale of an Oprah Chai Tea beverage, Starbucks makes a donation to benefit educational opportunities for youth through the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation! You can visit www.SteepYourSoul.com to learn more about the new Teavana Oprah Chai and the youth education organizations that will be supported through this partnership.
Like I said, I’m usually a coffee drinker, but this one may have just pulled me to the tea side!
As if I need another reason to go back and have another Teavana Oprah Chai Tea Latte again so soon – this Sunday on Mother’s Day, you can buy one, get one free!
That would make the perfect Mother’s Day outing, don’t you think!?
Are you a Tea Drinker? Have you tried an Oprah Chai Tea Latte yet?
