StarBucks Tea Instead of Coffee (India)

Whatever deals are done I hope the brand or quality of Starbucks' tea changes. I'm no expert, and I suppose it could have been the water, but when I was in Bangkok for an extended period recently Starbucks' tea tasted foul. You got the impression they must have scoured the world for the worst-tasting tea. Even instant tea tastes better. (IMO of course.)

The problem is often coffee contamination. Once you have used a container for coffee, you should _never_ use it for hot water for making tea.
This is not only a major issue at most Starbucks, but it's a serious issue with just about every banquet facility and hotel I have been in. They serve a lot more coffee than they do tea, and they don't bother to sequester the serving pots. --scott

Interesting. Our local starbucks sells tazo teas that aren't too bad (although paying a buck ninety for a teabag and some hot water kind of irks me). I really don't care for their coffee though. I tend to like dark roasts, but even their light roasts have a distinctive burned quality to them. I hope they dont' figure out how to impart this flavor to their teas.
