Tea Party: Starbucks Serves Up First Tazo-Only Store

Tea time.

Move over mocha latte, Starbucks will open its first non-coffee, exclusively tea Tazo shop this October in Seattle. The tea boutique will sell more than 80 varieties of loose-leaf tea and serve as a test store to float the idea out there. The tea news comes just a month after the Bay Bread deal. Maybe a biscotti spin-off or chocolate-graham-cracker café is next. [Bloomberg]
