Green tea drinks boost Starbucks revenues

A sign of green tea's growing popularity in the United States: Starbucks (no hissing, please) reports that a strong showing for green tea beverages was a major factor in a 27 percent rise in quarterly profits.

Alright, we all have to feed our sweet tooth once in a while, but I can't resist pointing out the irony of drinking a super sugar-charged green tea beverage "because it's good for you." (Kinda like washing down your vitamin supplements with whiskey. Not that I'd know anything about that.)

Besides, can you even taste the green tea in a green tea latte?

Come out of the darkness and into the light, o drinkers of green tea lattes!
