Starbucks, in partnership with Anheuser-Busch, has launched ready-to-drink Teavana unsweetened Meyer lemon iced tea in select retailers in the US.
The citrus blend is made with black tea and the tangy flavour of Meyer lemon, without any added sugar. It is currently available in New York, New Hampshire, Vermont and Missouri.
In June 2016, Starbucks and Anheuser-Busch announced plans to work together to produce Teavana craft iced teas in the US. Starbucks contributes to Teavana’s tea expertise, and Anheuser-Busch leads production and distribution to retailers.
Select variants of Teavana iced teas are available at grocery and convenience stores and at participating Starbucks locations across the US, with plans for national availability in 2018.
Other flavours in the range include passion tango, pineapple berry blue, and peach.
Each new flavour takes a green tea, herbal tea or black tea base and combines it with on-trend ingredients like hibiscus, lemongrass, mango and mint.
