Starbucks gold card carrier Bjorn Karlman (he really does have one) holds up two Tazo teas found at the 99 Cent store in Chico.
I was very surprised to see this name brand at the 99 Cent store. How had the stars aligned so that super-coffestore Starbucks would have an overflow of such outstanding proportions that its Tazo tea brand would land in the 99 cent store? And not just any Tazo tea: my favorite flavor, Giant Peach, which is refreshingly sweet and tart with a dry finish (I’m no tea connoisseur, but it really does leave the back of your tongue feeling all weird, in a good way).
Then I read this story: Starbucks To Open Tazo Tea Store.
Embarrassing overstock? Or clever gimmick to get the masses hooked and populating its tea stores??
No matter. We all win when the bottles are selling at 2 FOR 99 CENTS. Hooray!
