You get a tea! You get a tea! You get a tea! Oprah Winfrey has her own TV network, magazine and now she is expanding her empire outside of the media world into the tea business! Oprah announced Wednesday a collaboration with Starbucks to make and sell her own line of Teavana teas.

Oprah, a tea drinker herself, has developed a chai tea with a Teavana ‘teaologist’ that features “an infusion of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and cloves,” according to USA Today.

“Starbucks is about nurturing the human spirit,” said Winfrey. “That is my goal in life and what my brand has become.”

Oprah’s chai tea line will be available on April 29th at Starbucks and Teavana stores in the U.S. and Canada. The best part? All proceeds from her tea line will be donated to the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy to benefit youth education programs.
