About Teavana

Teavana is a brand of tea owned by the Starbucks corporation.

The brand started as a tea company based in Atlanta, GA. The Teavana Corporation was incorporated in 2003 and was run by CEO Andrew Mack, and CFO and Secretary Dan Glennon.[1] Following a 2011 IPO, Teavana was for a brief time a publicly traded corporation with stock symbol TEA on the New York Stock Exchange. The company was purchased by Starbucks in 2012 and has been owned by them since. In 2017 the company began the process of closing its in-person stores, and shortly after it closed its online store. During this process we posted an article discussing this process. The stores closed in a staggered fashion; some stayed open into 2018.

Some of Teavana's teas can still be purchased through Amazon, and some are still served in Starbucks. Teavana's website has removed the comprehensive information about their teas that they used to provide, and much of this information is no longer available. We have tried to maintain and archive what information we can so that people can retain a useful reference for this brand's products.

At its peak, Teavana sold loose tea both online and through their website, and had a few hundred retail stores, nearly all in high-end commercial shopping malls. Teavana sold many varieties of tea, scented and blended teas, and herbal teas. Teavana was best known for complex blends involving tea, rooibos, fruit, flowers, spices, yerba mate, and other ingredients. In addition to their blends, which included a large number of fruit teas, they also sold a number of pure teas. Teavana also carried a few organic teas.

SpecialTeas Acquisition

In 2005, the ST Acquisition Company, a corporation sharing an address with the Teavana Corporation, as well as sharing Dan Glennon as CFO and Andrew Mack as Director, purchased the Connecticut-based tea company SpecialTeas.[2] In January of 2011, SpecialTeas was closed, and their website was redirecting to Teavana's site.

Wow, am I ever ignorant. After rating a hundred-some-odd teas, I only just discovered by accidental click that I can rate teas on RateTea that have retired! Except...it ain't really retired anymore. This one and at least few others from Teavana have come back like that mythical phoenix. A set of 15-sachet plastic j...

I will likely revise this review after a few more times trying this tea. It seems high quality with a grassy quality, but I can’t decide how I feel about the bitter undertones. I generally am not a fan of bitter teas. To be fair, it might be a fault of my brewing. I do overall enjoy this tea, though, so long as it is...

I received this tea as part of a tea trade(4 ounces of this) for free, and am really enjoying this. I'd say it tastes very similar to Harney and sons' jasmine pearls with a slightly less dominant jasmine taste. The aroma is amazing and is almost purely jasmine. The flavor is sweet and of jasmine but can turn bitter/soa...
