Starbucks in the UK introduces two new Rooibos Lattes

In May this year, the world’s biggest coffee shop chain, Starbucks, introduced two Rooibos Lattes as part of its spring menu in the UK. The “luxurious” Rooibos Lattes – Rooibos Tea Latte and Red Apple Rooibos Tea Latte – were launched at 950 stores across the UK, which has one of the biggest tea-drinking markets in the world.

Adele du Toit, spokesperson for the SA Rooibos Council, says Rooibos speaks to the growing demand for health-promoting beverages worldwide.

South Africa currently exports Rooibos to over 30 countries, including the UK, Germany, the Netherlands and US. The growing lobal interest in Rooibos helps to enhance the demand while stimulating much-needed local economic activity.

Said Charlotta Oldham from Starbucks in the UK: “We are committed to innovation and creating new, delicious drinks for our customers.”
