Starbucks is looking to expand its footprint by opening “tea bars” under the name “Teavana Fine Teas.”

The first Teavana will open in New York City on Thursday, the Associated Press reports. The coffee heavyweight opened a similar tea shop last month near its Seattle headquarters under its Tazo brand, which will be converted into a Teavana bar as well.

The Teavana unveiling on Thursday comes after the company bought Teavana last year, with its chain of about 300 tea shops mostly based in shopping malls.
