Oprah Winfrey - Oprah Winfrey creates tea line for Starbucks

Oprah Winfrey is creating her own tea line for Starbucks.

The chat show legend has teamed up with the coffee shop giant to create the perfect chai blend, which will be available in store from April 29.

The 60-year-old star joined Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz onstage this morning (19.03.14) during the coffee retailer's annual shareholder's meeting to announce the news.

She said: ''My daily tea ritual is a vital part of my morning. Savory and spicy chai, with its deep flavour, has long been a favourite of mine.

''When Howard Schultz offered to have me come into the Starbucks tasting room and create my very own tea blend, I thought that sounded like such a unique opportunity and fun to the tenth power.

''Starbucks is not just a coffee company... it's about nurturing the human spirit.''

Proceeds from the tea's sales will go towards charities which that focus on a cause close to Oprah's heart, youth education.

They include her South African boarding school, the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls.

It appears the business deal has blossomed from a friendship, with 'The Butler' star first becoming acquainted with Schultz when she interviewed him for her 'Super Soul Sunday' series last year.
