For many Americans, there’s nothing like drinking a tall, cold glass of iced tea on a hot summer’s day. Whether plain, sweetened, infused with fruit flavors, or part of a specialty beverage, iced tea is increasingly popular nationwide.
In celebration of National Iced Tea Month and National Iced Tea Day, Teavana stores in the U.S. and Canada will offer one free small serving of brewed Raspberry Limeade Iced Tea to each customer who makes purchase in a Teavana store or Teavana Fine Teas + Tea Bar on June 10.
Starbucks previewed the first-of-its-kind Teavana Fine Teas + Tea Bar in New York City’s Upper East Side. Opening October 24, the Tea Bar will elevate the premium tea experience by delivering a carefully curated assortment of handcrafted tea beverages, premium loose leaf teas, tea-inspired food offerings, and tea merchandise, making the ritual of tea more elevated and accessible for customers.
Furthering its commitment to innovate and transform the tea industry and enhance the consumer tea experience in the U.S. and internationally, Starbucks Coffee Company has agreed to acquire Teavana Holdings Inc. in an all-cash acquisition.
As the exclusive retail leasing representative in New York City for Teavana, RKF secured the Atlanta-based premium loose-leaf teas and teaware retailer’s first Manhattan location at 1291 Lexington Ave., located between 86th and 87th Streets.
RKF Executive Vice President Ariel Schuster, Senior Director Greg Covey, and Associate Justin Fantasia arranged the retail lease on behalf of Teavana, while Director Jackie Totolo, also of RKF, represented ownership, The MP 1291 Trust.
