You get a teabag, and you get a teabag: Oprah appeared at Starbucks shareholders meeting to help announce a tea drink called Oprah Chai that will be sold at Starbucks.

Starbucks has attempted to link celebrities and beverages before but with little success, including Coco Chanel Cocoa, LL Cool J Kool-Aid and Tyler Perry’s Yerba Madea.
