Oprah Comments On Donald Sterling While Launching New Tea Line
A fired up Oprah spoke out on CBS This Morning where she sat side-by-side with Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, former owner of Seattle Supersonics. He agrees that Sterling should get get the boot.
Oprah said, “It feels like a plantation mentality in the 21st century. In 2014, it just doesn't fit."
Schultz said, “This is about much more than the NBA. This is about America. I think it's a moment of truth for Adam Silver. If it was up to me, I’d ban him for life.”
The TV titan and the Starbucks tycoon are joining forces to push a new line of tea called "Oprah Chai." Oprah worked with tea makers at Starbucks headquarters in Seattle to create the special blend.
Schultz said, “She was in there for hours and hours sampling back and forth."
Oprah's Chai tea debuted today at Starbucks nationwide. Tea is actually a bigger business than coffee. It's a $90 billion industry worldwide and is the second most widely consumed beverage in the world next to water.
Oprah's new business venture is exploding on social media with fans posting reviews on YouTube.
One person said, “It's pretty good, not too spicy, I would kind of like it spicier probably.”
Another said, “I absolutely fell in love with the tea.”
We did our own taste test on the streets of New York. The reviews were mixed.
