Another one bites the dust…

I was browsing my workFacebook feed and read an interesting blurb of information from a young woman who works as a barista at Starbucks/Star$$$.  She was quite excited about the news, and thought that it was great for tea drinkers.. but I have to wonder.  Apparently Star$$$ is purchasing Teavana.

Teavana recently bought out Teaopia, and got rid of all but 6 (I think) of the best-selling teas.

Not to rely on information from status updates on Facebook (about as good of a source as Wikipedia is in academia) I did a quick search and found out that it is indeed true – as per this CBC article.

Some of the respondents were happy, some were sad, and one just wanted to know if he’d be able to keep getting his employee discount… Since I am not a huge fan of Teavana, I don’t really think it will be a big deal, but still it’s sad if we’re going to lose another place for loose leaf tea.
