new tea drinks at starbucks?
so i don't usually frequent starbucks, but recently while in dire need of a caffein fix i went into one that was not surprisingly "conveniently located" around the corner from where i was.
i planned on getting a latte, but then i was seduced by the name "london fog." well,
the name was nice, but but the drink was nearly undrinkable.
what's the deal with these new tea/milk drinks? are any of them good?
I tried the Green Tea and Chai types, they're aweful. They use a powder flavor mix that is also sweetened, I'll stick to their coffee and leave the tea to myself.
I drink a lot of London Fogs at local coffeeshops; if you hadn't heard the name you would never guess that Starbucks' version was the same drink. The Starbucks here make them weak and watery. I also tried the Apple Chai the other day when I needed some change for laundry, and it was horrible. It was uncomfortable spicy (for a beverage).
I like the Vanilla Roiboos tea latte. It's basically a tea bag steeped in milk (i get soy). The Starbucks near my school makes it really well- but I've had it in other stores and it tasted watery. It's not life changing- but at 3pm it's a delicious change to decaf coffee.
My husband ordered a Berry Chai tea. I tried a sip and thought it was just lukeworm berry flavored juice. Not very good.
