Teavana – CLOSED



Last Updated: Mar. 16, 2018

About Teavana

Teavana was 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.

Their online store has closed; we have an article discussing this process. The stores are closing in a staggered fashion; some stayed open into 2018. Some of Teavana's teas can still be purchased through Amazon.

Teavana sold loose tea, and had retail stores, nearly all in high-end commercial shopping malls. It also sold through their website.

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.

Picture of Darjeeling de Triomphe Black Tea

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...

I got this tea for 16$ in an 8-ounce tin during a closing sale, so for me, the value was more of a 4.0(80 total rating if accounted for). One thing I did notice was these large popcorn pieces that add little to no flavor to the blend which were used as a filler, but this only took up about 5-10% of the container. But T...
