SEATTLE — Starbucks Corp. is planning to do for tea what it did for coffee by opening a Tazo tea store in its hometown of Seattle as early as this fall, according to Reuters.
“[The] Tazo store will sell more than 80 varieties of loose-leaf tea and other tea products. It will also offer hot and cold tea drinks, brewing equipment, pastries, packaged chocolates, infused sugars and honey,” reads the Reuters report, which sources a Starbucks spokeswoman.
Starbucks bought Tazo for $8.1 million in 1999 and sells Tazo products through its shops and select grocery stores.
