The starbucks tea sandwiches at Starbucks are making tea sandwiches that are making them think, it says.
In a press release, Starbucks said its tea sandwiches are “inspired by the way our customers enjoy tea and coffee” and that the sandwiches were made with fresh, organic ingredients, which were sourced locally and “made in house”.
Starbucks, which has been struggling to gain ground in the tea market, says it is adding more coffee options to its menu to compete with the likes of Starbucks.
Starbuck’s tea sandwiches, made with a roasted, organic black tea, will be available at its Starbucks cafes starting December 1, the company said in a statement on Thursday.
Starbucks coffee has long been known for its coffee-filled sandwich, which is often served with an avocado, bacon, lettuce and tomato and topped with a slice of bacon, a slice a pepperoni, and a cherry tomato.
Starbucks’ sandwiches are made with roasted, fresh, and organic ingredients sourced locally, Starbucks spokesman Jason Blum said in the release.
The sandwiches are available from Starbucks cafes in the US and in other markets around the world.
“As a global leader in providing fresh, locally-sourced ingredients to our customers, we are pleased to introduce a variety of new and exciting options to our tea sandwich line-up,” the statement said.
The coffee company says the sandwiches have been popular with consumers, with customers ordering more than 2.6 million sandwiches since the launch.
In the past, Starbucks has been known to make teas sandwiches for tea parties, but it did not launch any at its coffee shops in the first half of the year.
While Starbucks has not said when it will launch the sandwiches, Blum added that the company is committed to expanding the tea sandwich offerings in its cafes.
This year, Starbucks introduced the coffee-studded coffee, which includes roasted, roasted, caramel, and chocolate, along with a green tea, coffee, and sweet tea.
“We have seen our customers continue to come to Starbucks in record numbers, and we are excited to continue to offer our customers the best coffee and tea sandwiches in the world,” Blum told Reuters.
