Dunkin’ Donuts re­vamps tea lineup as it vies with Star­bucks

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - NEWS -

NEW YORK >> Dunkin’ Donuts, which is bet­ter known for its cof­fee, is re­vamp­ing its hot tea lineup as it seeks to bet­ter com­pete with ri­vals like Star­bucks.

The chain got rid of the hot teas it had of­fered, which were orig­i­nal, green or de­caf. It has re­placed them with what it calls Bold Break­fast black tea, Har­mony Leaf green tea, Chamomile Fields, Hibis­cus Kiss and Cool Mint.

Star­bucks Corp. boosted its tea of­fer­ings four years ago when it bought Tea­vana. It cur­rently sells the brand’s teas in its cof­fee shops.

The hot tea over­haul at Dunkin’ comes as it has sought to of­fer higher-end cof­fee drinks, such as cold brew cof­fee. The chain, owned by Can­ton, Mas­sachusetts-based Dunkin’ Brands Group Inc., says the new teas are avail­able na­tion­wide.
