I usually go to Starbucks for the coffee, but during the stifling dog days of summer, nothing hits the spot like their shaken iced teas. Now, just in time for the midsummer heat wave, Starbucks is launching three new iced teas that will take a permanent place on their menu.
There are three flavors of the new Teavana Shaken Iced Tea Infusions. Each is infused with an herbal tea made from botanicals and fruit, not the artificial flavorings, sweeteners, or syrups you might expect. You can choose from pineapple black tea, peach-citrus white tea and strawberry green tea (or try getting a half tea, half lemonade blend for added refreshment).
If you’re still not sold on the new flavors, you can even sample them on Free Tea Friday, July 14. Just go to a participating Starbucks between 1 and 2 p.m. to get a free tall (12-ounce) Teavana Shaken Iced Tea Infusion.
It’s not often that Starbucks adds new items to their permanent menu, but when they do, it’s usually a good sign. And honestly, who says no to free iced tea?
