Saving energy with LED Lighting
Since 2008, you have shared a lot of ideas about how we can make our stores more “green,” more comfortable, and more energy efficient. I work on the Facilities Environmental Performance Management Team, and as an environmentalist myself, I am proud to share some of the great strides we’ve made with energy efficient lighting in our stores. But first, let me share an email from my colleague’s Mom: “This past week I was at my Starbucks getting coffee and the physical setting was so friendly, smelled great, and of course people genuinely friendly. I asked what had changed to make this store so comfortable....changed the lighting!!!!! Hope your day is productive or relaxed … more »

New Caffeine-Free Oprah Chai Herbal Blend
For years, My Starbucks Idea members have been asking for a caffeine-free chai to enjoy morning, day, and night. But we weren’t about to give you just any decaf chai. To find a recipe as warm and spicy as the original, we went to the experts. Our teaologists worked with chai lover, Oprah Winfrey, to select each ingredient and create a fresh take that is naturally caffeine-free. Usually, chai contains black tea, which brings caffeine, but Teavana® Oprah Chai Herbal Blend contains only herbs, fruits, and botanicals. Our Teavana® Oprah Chai Herbal Blend has a light body and citrusy notes. Each sip brings together a unique blend of flavors including iconic chai spices like cinnamon … more »
