How to Get Free Starbucks This Friday

They just debuted a new iced tea concoction — and they want to give it to you for free!

Is it just me, or has Starbucks been killing it lately in their efforts to step up their healthy (and somewhat trendy) options? They hopped on the unicorn-themed train and made it possible to get avocado toast alongside your morning cup-o-joe on the way into the office. And they just added yet another round of healthier drinks to their lineup — Teavana Shaken Iced Tea Infusions — which come in three flavor options: Pineapple Black Tea, Peach Citrus White Tea and Strawberry Green Tea. And lucky you: Tomorrow, they’re giving them away for free!

According to Starbucks’ press release: the tea infusions contain only tea, fruit and botanical blends and are lightly sweetened with a touch of liquid cane sugar — so no artificial sweeteners or syrups, and a 16-ounce tea will ring in at only 45 calories.

The other day, I had a little bit of time to kill before I had to catch my train so, naturally, I wandered into Starbucks, and — because, apparently, I’m very susceptible to signage — I decided upon a Shaken Iced Tea Infusion. (I had no idea it was a brand-spankin’-new item, so when the barista informed me, I felt VERY on-trend.) I was torn between the Pineapple Black Tea and Strawberry Green Tea, but landed on the latter. The Strawberry Green Tea was fruity and refreshing, and most importantly, not too sweet — making it a lovely alternative to the (slightly sweeter) Starbucks Refresher.

So, about trying one for yourself for free. Per the press release, all you have to do is swing by any Starbucks outpost this Friday, July 14th, for “Free Tea Friday” between 1 and 2 p.m. and they’ll let you try one 12-ounce tea infusion on the house.
