Starbucks is opening the first-stand alone Tazo tea store in Seattle this fall. The AP reports that the coffee giant plans to set up the tea shop — which will offer more than 80 varieties of tea — near its SEA headquarters. The Tazo brand was founded in 1994 by Portlander Steven Smith, who sold the brand to Starbucks in 1999; in late 2011, Starbucks announced it would move Tazo's remaining Portland production facilities to Washington state.
