Starbucks - Venti Tea

Oddness at Starbucks today (in Calgary, Alberta, Canada; located inside a Safeway supermarket).
I ordered my usual Venti green tea with one teabag. I have Starbucks cards coming out my ears (I'm a teacher!) so I never really pay attention to the price.
However, the girl said that they have a new policy: all Venti teas have to come with two teabags, and if I don't want the teabag in my cup then I have the choice of getting the second teabag in a pastry bag and taking it home for later. The girl was apologetic and said she was embarassed to even have to say it.
Huh? How is that logical? Can I get around it by order a Grande tea in a Venti cup or something? It's not even the price that bothers me... it's just the absurdity.
Is this a policy at all Starbucks now?
