    Every time I go to Starbucks for coffee, I get bloated as shit. And the coffee doesn't taste that great. And the hwc has carageenen

    But in other news! I like to get a brewed coffee with warmed heavy cream on top. And if I can't get the heavy cream, I just take it black

    Once I learned to make espresso at home in a stove top espresso pot (like my dad used to use on holidays), drinking coffee from a shop was ruined for me. But if they made it, a mug of espresso with two tablespoons of half and half. In my jammies.

    6 shots of espresso followed by a Venti coffee. No sugar, no cream. Just the straight stuff for me.

I like a "corn tea" that a local Korean restaurant serves, though I have no idea what is in it or how it's made.
    Have you given green tea with mint a try? It's quite tasty both cold and hot, and of the "fancy greens" is usually one of the easier to find. Tazo has a blend called "Zen" that you can usually find in chain coffee shops, and you'll sometimes see it marketed as "Moroccan Mint" or "Moroccan Whatever." Earl Grey is nice, zingy without being syrupy, and you might like Lady Grey as well - it's Earl Grey with lavender. All three of these options are best without milk, IMO.

    My all-time favorite green (ok...well...maybe tied with a more grassy tea that you might be less into) is Bancha Hojicha. It's a roasted green tea that's got this wonderful nutty flavor. I have no idea what your "corn tea" tastes like, but it might be close. There's another green called Genmaicha that contains toasted rice (legend has it they started adding this to tea during WWII to stretch their supplies). Anyway, it has a similarly toasty flavor to it as Bancha Hojicha, so I thought the Hojicha might replicate the "corn tea" without containing corn...or rice. :-) Be careful, though, because I've seen places get Genmaicha and Hojicha mixed up. Just look for the rice, if you want to avoid it - it's right there in the tea, looking like little tiny pieces of popcorn.

    So, uh...yeah, right after college I definitely worked simultaneously at a Starbucks and a loose tea shop. :-D I love this stuff!
