Meet the New Starbucks Teavana Frozen Teas, Coming this September

Last year was the first time Starbucks introduced the Teavana lineup to the local public, and it was a success. Today, Starbucks Philippines is returning the lineup with added twist unveling its new treats called the Teavana Frozen Teas ready to stir up a whole new way to experience tea with an icy-smooth texture.

These refreshing, icy-smooth handcrafted beverages combine the finest Teavana teas and botanical blends with premium ingredients like Kyoho grapes and pomegranate peals. These new Teavana Frozen Teas will be available, for a limited time only, starting September 12, 2017 nationwide.

"We want our customers to experience tea like they've never imagined. Drawing our inspiration from a love of tea in Asia and from popular new flavors," "This year, Starbucks takes innovation in flavors and texture to the next level with a unique Frozen Tea platform to satisfy the growing sophistication of consumer preference." said Keith Cole, Head of Marketing for Starbucks Philippines.

Starbucks Teavana Frozen Teas have been developed exclusively for consumers across Asia, delivering a sophisticated and modern tea experience. Starbucks is committed to investing in Teavana in the region as it gains a strong growth driver for the brand.

Commenting on the growing interest in frozen beverages, Davina Patel, global food and drink analyst at Mintel, the global market intelligence agency which follows food and beverage trends in Asia, said: "Our research shows that consumers in Asia continue to gravitate towards beverages with textural and visual appeal, which has led to a growing interest in frozen products. Moreover, consumers are increasingly exploring the world of tea through flavor and variety, with preference shifting towards botanical teas such as herbs, fruits, and spices."

Icy, refreshing and packed with antioxidants, Starbucks Teavana Frozen Iced Teas will be available in the following flavors and will also be available as Iced Shaken:
  • Starbucks Teavana Frozen Hibiscus Tea with Pomegranate Pearls - This refreshing beverage combines floral notes of hibiscus flowers and rose petals with the tropical flavors of papaya and mango, enhanced with hints of cinnamon and lemongrass. The beverage is topped with glistering, jewel-like pearls of pomegranate juice that burst on the tongue.
  • Starbucks Teavana Frozen Chamomile Tea with Kyoho Grape and Aloe - Soothinh chamomile tea is blended with honeyed white grapes and aloe cubes delivering a cool, lightly sweet taste. The beverage is generously topped with skinned and pitted whole Kyoho grapes - a popular variety from Japan known for its distinctive sweetness and generous size. 
As a special treat, Starbucks Card customers can enjoy these icy-smooth Starbucks Teavana Frozen Teas ahead of its public launch. Customers will just need to pay the full amount of the beverage using their Starbucks Card from September 9-11 to avail of the early access promo.
