STARBUCKS NOT TEA

Did you mean;
'Drink Coffee, not Tea!"
or perhaps you meant:
Starbucks is not Real Tea!"
Either of those are valid I suppose.
If instead you are trolling, well. har. Didn't even flicker the needle a smidgen.

Things at Starbucks seem to be improving. For a long time, every time I ordered tea at Starbucks, I wound up with a cup that had detectable coffee contamination.... and there is nothing that makes tea worse than residual coffee.
The last year or so, things seem to have improved a lot. I don't know if they changed their procedures or what. But these days I can go in and get a drinkable cup of black tea made with boiling water, which is more than I can say for just about any other airport vendor in the US. --scott

There are about three Tazo offerings I can handle. They used to have one which was green tea with lemongrass, but of course that one was "too adventurous" and had to be discontinued. Their black tea, and their plain China green tips are doable. I actually never had a coffee contamination issue, I also, thankfully, never have to go to Starbucks again since it was the only option at my last employers location.
Now, I have an awesome local bakery/coffee shop that has amazing gazpacho, sandwiches, and coffee... still no luck for tea.

Tell ya what, bring in your tea service complete with every thing and proceed to make a proper cup, and see if they get the hint....

I actually talked with them about providing proper tea. They have some interest so we'll see. Not to the extent of gongfu but what I believe is a nice compromise between a hot water lever and a teabag and serious brewing.

Peets and Coffeebean have loose leaf tea so i dont see why *bx has been hanging on to those Tazo bags... i suppose it sells "tea" and makes them profit, while acquiring loose leaf tea = hire people, invest $ to buy a more expensive basic material that might not sell/ make as much profit as the tbags. and its not like majority of people at *bux are demanding where's yunnan gold tips or such...
