Tea has been praised in China for its medicinal properties as well as included in banquets and meals for generations. Starbucks, the U.S coffee giant chain, hasn’t been around quite as long and is making efforts to jump on the bandwagon. Starbucks’ empire within China has launched nine new kinds of tea to their Shenzhen branches (http://www.chinaretailnews.com/2010/03/11/3423-starbucks-to-enter-chinas-tea-drinks-market/).
