Got the sniffles? Caught that nasty flu going around? Some of us unlucky ones battling the common cold or flu, reminiscing fondly of a time, not too long ago, when we could breathe through our noses and actually taste food, will be in better spirits thanks to Starbucks' latest winter tea lineup.
The coffee chain's Teavana beverages are packed with soothing ingredients and invigorating blends to combat seasonal ailments and help you power through this blistering winter.
Teavana Wellness Teas rolled out on Starbucks' menu in four different power-packed flavors to address each one of your flu symptoms -- from the chills to drowsiness, to a compromised immune system.
First up is Teavana Comfort Wellness Tea, a robust blend to reach for when you're feeling perhaps unsettled or rumpled by winter's ugly slush-lined streets and unforgiving wind chill. Calming rooibos and soothing ginger and lemon, mixed with spearmint and peppermint, are naturally uplifting flavors and will warm you from the inside out.
Teavana Defense Wellness Tea is what you should drink when your guard is down and tissue boxes are running low. Made with zesty oranges, lemon, lemongrass, cinnamon and ginger, this white tea is a dependable defense against the flu and its nasty symptoms. Defense Wellness Tea is loaded with vitamin C to kick up your immune system during these cold winter months.
Teavana's Rev Up tea is a powerful, energizing blend made with three teas -- black, oolong and green. It's the best choice after a few sick days to get you back in your groove.
The last line of defense, Citrus Defender, is Starbucks' newest lineup of Teavana teas. It contains all the basics to a tea tonic -- white tea, soothing honey and lemon.
Starbucks beverages cover pretty much every mood -- in sickness and in health. And recently, in the name of mischief and magic, a Harry Potter-inspired beverage was recently added to the chain's extensive list of secret menu items. The Butterbeer Frappuccino, made with a Creme Frappuccino base, three pumps of caramel and toffee nut syrups each, is a wizardly libation to sip during endless Harry Potter marathons.
