Shares of Teavana (TEA -2.5%) tread water as Glaucus Research Group backs its Strong Sell rating on the stock with a warning Starbucks (SBUX +0.7%) may back off purchasing the tea retailer due to the pesticide containment of the firm's products. Neither company has commented publicly on the accusations just yet, but with Starbucks' well-advertised commitment to ethical sourcing a response seems likely. (Teavana research report .pdf)

    Did Starbucks do its due diligence on Teavana as a business that would be accretive based on the purchase price?
    BTW, Tazo is not real tea, and tea drinkers don't go to coffee/"tea" outlets to drink real tea.
