I'm with Jeysie.... I'm a Tea drinker, through and through!  ( I was born in England remember, in the lakes district, I was in tea drinking central )

I'm a tea junkie, and would much rather a qaulity tea 'cafe' over a coffee 'cafe'.    ;D
I know my coffee's too, but only the basics. I prefer talking about Earl Grey with Blue Flower and arguing over how long to brew it, how much tea, what order to add the milk and sugar... hehehehe

I don't mind the different types of coffees.  That's not Starbuck's fault.  They didn't invent most of them or the names.

What really, really bothers me about them is the name of their sizes.  "Short" "Tall" "Grande" "Venti".  It sounds trivial, but wtf happened to "Small, medium, large, extra large"?!?!!
Just look at me,
I'm living proof that,

Some smartass copywriter killed them ;)

I don't really drink coffee... there was one Starbucks near where I live, but it closed down so I'm guessing it didn't catch on around here. Neither did Dunkin Donuts. McDonald's is doing fine though :P
