Coffee, tea and 'man, you're picky'

I know that American espresso drinkers can be a fussy lot (two-shot, half-caf, no foam, sugar-free, etc.). But tea drinkers?

I've been trying to go off coffee this week, but today, in desperation, I headed downstairs to 'bucks for a mid-morning java jolt (with the week I'm having, it was either that or start drinking the hard stuff at my desk). As I was paying, the nicely dressed gentleman behind me ordered a grande Earl Grey tea with three shots of peppermint syrup and four honey packets. I'm not sure why he even bothered with the tea part of that concoction.
