The world’s biggest coffee chain Starbucks said on Thursday that it was planning to release Matcha tea in Dubai.
The drinks will be available for purchase at the Starbucks bar chain in Dubai and in other Starbucks-owned stores and cafes, including in the United Arab Emirates and Dubai International Airport.
Starbucks said it plans to open its first Starbucks-branded Starbucks bar in Dubai in late 2017.
“Starbucks Matchah is a new, exciting beverage to introduce to the Dubai market,” the company said in a statement.
“We’re excited to launch this beverage and look forward to opening it in the Emirates and other Starbucks stores and cafés in Dubai.”
Starbucks, founded in 1975 in San Francisco, has been growing at a fast clip in recent years, and it is the third-largest coffee chain in the world after Starbucks Corp. and Starbucks Coffee Roasters.
The coffee chain recently reported a third-quarter profit of $1.16 billion, or $5.90 per share.
