Dunkin' Donuts' signature hot tea is a proprietary blend of select high grown teas for high quality and taste. Dunkin' Donuts' traditional black tea is a well-balanced, bright and flavorful tea with an attractive amber color and a brisk taste. Dunkin' Donuts' green tea has a pure flavor with toasty top notes. All of the farms from which Dunkin' Donuts sources its tea are members of the Ethical Tea Partnership, a not-for-profit organization established in 1997 to help build a thriving tea industry that is socially just and environmentally sustainable. Dunkin' Donuts teas are sourced by a member of the Ethical Tea Partnership to support the organization's efforts to improve tea farmers' lives and environment, and ensure a sustainable tea supply for the future. Dunkin' Donuts Packaged Tea, available in black, decaf and green varieties, is sold at participating Dunkin' Donuts restaurants and online.
"While many people think of Dunkin' Donuts as a coffee destination, we know that our guests make our tea part of their day as well. For National Hot Tea Month, we look forward to celebrating our tea in a fun and engaging way through our special Twitter sweepstakes," said John Costello, President, Global Marketing and Innovation at Dunkin' Brands.
