IMG_2189 new cane sugar sweetened tea StarbucksStarting today, March 21, 2017, there’s new food and tea at Starbucks! Your Teavana Shaken Iced Teas get a big makeover and Starbucks has added a shaken iced white tea to the menu! Here’s a taste of what’s new at Starbucks:

NEW: Teavana Shaken Iced White Tea: Starbucks says that this is, “Soft and delicate flavor with a clean, bright finish, new Teavana Shaken Iced White Tea is shaken with ice for a crisp, subtly sweet refreshment.”

NEW: All the Teavana Shaken Iced Teas  are now sweetened with a liquid cane sugar, which was specially crafted to complement the Teavana teas, and has fewer calories than the previous sweetener.

NEW: Teavana Lightly Sweet Chai – Available hot or iced, Teavana Lightly Sweet Chai Tea Latte is a less-sweet take on the beloved Teavana Classic Chai Tea Latte. Black tea is infused with cinnamon, clove and other warming spices, mixed with steamed with milk and sweetened with new liquid cane sugar.

In the food news, there is big news: The Gluten Free Breakfast Sandwich is here nationally at Starbucks stores. You will like this even if you don’t require a gluten free diet.

I have actually had the new Gluten Free Breakfast Sandwich a couple of times before today’s national launch. I first tried it when it was in testing in San Diego county last fall. At that time, 350 select Starbucks locations carried this new breakfast sandwich. I was inside the Starbucks headquarters last month trying the new Overnight Grains, and had another chance to enjoy this new Gluten Free Breakfast Sandwich. Delicious!

This Canadian bacon and peppered egg patty and cheddar cheese breakfast sandwich is a tasty, not too heavy, delicious way to start your morning.

The Gluten Free Breakfast Sandwich is warmed in its own packaging to avoid cross contamination, ensuring it stays gluten free.

You’ll find the new Gluten Free Breakfast Sandwich at the majority of U.S. company-operated Starbucks locations.
