How to order Earl Grey Tea at Starbucks

To order from the app first, download the Starbucks app from the app store or play store, fill in the needed details including the delivery address and then log in. On the app under the menu navigate to the drinks sections and select “Hot Teas” then choose “Earl Grey tea”. Here, select the size of the beverage from the options displayed then proceed to “Customizations”. Under customizations scroll down to “Add-ins”, click edit then scroll down to the “Creamers” section. In the creamers category choose the kind of milk you’d like with your tea (if you want milk) from the options listed. Remember that plant-based milk is the recommended kind for amazing flavours.

Then, if you want your tea sweetened, navigate to the “Liquid Sweeteners” section and select the “Starbucks Classic syrup”. This is the perfect liquid sweetener to use as it sweetens the beverage without adding any flavours. However, if you prefer sugar, select it under the “Sweetener packets” section, then click done. Proceed to the “Tea” section where you’ll select the number of tea bags you want in your beverage. Typically, the short and tall sizes have one tea bag while the grande and venti sizes have two tea bags. But, you can change it if you want. Finally, place your order.
