Starbucks Philippines has announced their two new handcrafted Teavana Frozen Teas: the Hibiscus Tea with Pomegranate Pearls (the pearls burst on your tongue and then you smile like a kid!) and Chamomile Tea with Kyoho Grape and Aloe (has a cool, lightly sweet but refreshing taste). Both will be available in iced shaken format for a limited time only, from September 12 to November 1.
The Starbucks Chamomile Tea with Kyoho Grape and Aloe (above left) has a distinct texture and is made with honey white grape puree with aloe and topped whole Kyoho grapes that are both big on size and unique sweetness. The Starbucks Hibiscus Tea with Pomegranate Pearls (above right) combines hibiscus, tropical papaya, and mango (plus hints of cinnamon and lemongrass), complemented with pomegranate pearls that burst on your tongue.
Prices upon availability starting September 12: Tall P150 | Grande P165 | Venti P180.
The unveiling of the new Frozen Teas follows the momentum of Teavana’s launch last year, a move that brought Starbucks modern tea experience to Asia. Both the Hibiscus Tea with Pomegranate Pearls and Chamomile Tea with Kyoho Grape and Aloe combine the finest Teavana teas and botanical blends with premium ingredients; are icy, refreshing, and packed with anti-oxidants; and offer a distinct look and satisfies the preference of tea-lovers for botanical teas such as herbs, fruits, and spices
The announcement was made last September 2 at the spacious Starbucks store at Macapagal Boulevard, Paranaque City.
There bloggers and media representatives were treated to relaxing afternoon punctuated by a pouch-design contest along with demo’s by baristas on the process of making iced shaken format Teavana teas (see one blogger in action, below).
