The said launch was held at the newest Starbucks branch in Eugenio Drive, Quezon City. Starbucks introduces newest tea experiences for the press, media and Starbucks lovers. Just like what they have done with your coffee experience, Starbucks Teavana is tea reimagined.
Fueled by innovation, the new individually handcrafted beverages are the result of an in-depth, creative exploration of flavor, culinary trends and premium ingredients by Starbucks industry-leading beverage innovation team, with the goal of bringing something new and unexpected to customers. These ingredients come to life as skilled baristas craft each beverage by hand and unleash a sophisticated, delicious flavor profile.
