Prefer tea over coffee? You'll want to check out Teavana, a new loose leaf tea emporium that will open in March in Edina’s Southdale Center.
Teavana, Starbucks' new foray into the tea market, opened its first location in New York City in October 2013 and has already opened eight locations in Minnesota malls and shopping centers.
to its website, the goal of Teavana is "To provide fresh, high quality
teas and the products to serve them. And to create a unique tea
experience in each store by encouraging a positive, healthy outlook for
all who enter."
The shop will sell a variety of loose leaf teas
from across the globe as well as tea kettles, teapots, rock sugar, tea
cups and mugs and other tea appliances. It will be located on the mall's first level, near Macy's.
There are Twin Cities Teavana
stores located in Burnsville Center, Eden Prairie Center, the Mall of America, Maplewood Mall, Ridgedale Center and the Shoppes at Arbor Lakes.
