HONG KONG -- Starbucks is making a new push to sell its own brand of tea in 16 Asian markets, after it started marketing Teavana in China last week.

The U.S.-based coffee chain announced on Monday that it would start selling Teavana tea in the Asia-Pacific region including Cambodia, Indonesia, Singapore, South Korea and Malaysia. On the menu: black tea with ruby grapefruit and honey, iced shaken hibiscus tea with pomegranate pearls -- a more complex recipe than what is being offered such as herbal tea and green tea lemonade in the U.S.
