Oprah Winfrey may not have a talk show anymore but that hasn’t stopped her from sharing all her favorite things with her fans.

The OWN Network owner and philanthropist is partnering with Starbucks to sell her very own tea blend and part of the proceeds from its sales are going to charity.

“I looove tea,” said Oprah. “My daily tea ritual is a vital part of my morning. Savory and spicy chai, with its deep flavor, has long been a favorite of mine. When Howard Schultz offered to have me come into the Starbucks tasting room and create my very own tea blend, I thought that sounded like such a unique opportunity and fun to the tenth power. To share one of my favorite things with the rest of the world and support youth education at the same time is truly the perfect blend.”

The Teavana® Oprah Chai Tea features a bold infusion of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom and cloves, blended with loose-leaf black tea and rooibos. It will be available at Starbucks stores in the U.S. and Canada just in time for Mother’s Day and if you needed an extra reason to start boiling the water and reaching for a cup, part of the sales will go towards the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation. The foundation provides funding for the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls – South Africa, the school Oprah founded, and helps its graduates go on to attend colleges and universities. The foundation will also support additional youth education programs through Girls Inc., National CARES Mentoring Movement, Pathways to College and the U.S. Dream Academy.
