I went to Starbucks last evening and ordered myself exactly what I wanted:
a venti, 2p peppermint, nonfat, light water, one zen, one refresh tea misto
High maintainence? I prefer not to think to. I like to call it "lots of words for less ingredients". The barista looked at me like I was nuts, made my drink, and sent me on my merry way. I could not have asked for better service and a better drink.
