Teavana Tea Emporium Opening in Southdale Center
The Starbucks-owned tea shop is planning a March opening.
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.
According 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.
