Cream and cookie crumble in your tea?

Although the gradual disappearance (near-disappearance, lately) of decent tea from retail across the globe (including once tea-drinking nations like Poland) can be directly linked to absence of major tea internationals — coffee is aggressively pushed by several international companies with good marketing muscle, there is no one capable of championing tea — for a tea-drinker, Starbuck’s entry into the tea business is no reason to celebrate. Being an American company, they won’t promote tea; they will promote some sort of tasteless Frankestein available in seventeen flavors, including cookie crumble and M&M. This has a good chance of being the final nail in tea’s coffin.
