Starbucks shareholders heard the announcement at their annual meeting - soon you will be able to buy Teavana Oprah Chai Tea at Starbucks.

The crowd went wild as Oprah took the stage in McCaw Hall Wednesday. She said her tea is a spicy blend she developed and Starbucks will make a donation to the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy Foundation for each product sold.

Beginning April 29, customers will be able to walk into Starbucks and Teavana stores across the United States and Canada and order Teavana Oprah Chai Tea.

Schultz also told shareholders the coffee company is still in the early stages of growth and has a long-term target of doubling its market cap to $100 billion.

Television writer and producer Norman Lear kicked off the meeting by introducing the Playing For Change Band, whose third album will be available in Starbucks stores in June.
