I prefer tea to coffee.

Why pay 8-12 bucks for coffee when you can buy tea for under $3?

Agreed; especially interest.

Why pay..?
Because coffee is different in pharmacodynamics.
While tea is good, no objections, and it makes you feel better in the long run, coffee 1) kicks you faster, 2) and it has a Holy effect - drives you to excrete the body liquids (which is essential in the case of some bad headaches).

It is? I thought dehydration caused by excretion of bodily fluids was a cause of headaches. :)

Anyway, count me in the tea camp.

This one I suspected, but wasn't sure. It's a good thing my country has no Starbucks.
Quote
Coffee companies such as Starbucks and Dunkin' Donuts sometimes use "fake coffee smell" to entice shoppers. ScentAir, a so-called "scent provider," is a popular choice in the coffee industry as well as retail stores, restaurants and hotels, where methods of "aromachology" are used along with the "latest in fragrance technology."

This one I suspected, but wasn't sure.

I recalled reading something about that a few years back, and here's an article from a few years back (http://www.telegraph.co.uk/finance/newsbysector/retailandconsumer/8259915/Smello-retail-shops-using-scent-to-keep-hold-of-customers.html). (I have no idea if that's the one I read, of course.)

Incidentally, this comment could've been written by me:
Quote
If they go ahead with using scents and get the audio bit right, shopping will require some drastic counter-measures on my part. I shall have to wear headphones (like pneumatic drill operators wear or should wear) and a gas mask.

I tried to enter an "Abercrombie & Fitch" store once to see what the heck was going on in there. The combined olfactory and auditory assault, coupled with what seemed like a bunch of overpriced junk, quickly chased me out.

Well, I suppose that was a bit off topic. :P

I like to mix up some green tea and mint leaves.
