Starbucks Sued For Serving "Unreasonably Hot" Tea

Starbucks has certainly been accused of serving coffee that tastes burnt, but a customer in NYC has filed suit against that java giant, after allegedly suffering second-degree burns from a pipin’-hot cup of tea.

According to the suit, which seeks unspecified damages, the plaintiff went to a Manhattan Starbucks and got a tea that was served “unreasonably hot, in containers which were not safe.”

In addition to the alleged burns, the plaintiff suffered “great physical pain and mental anguish.”

The plaintiff also probably paid way too much for that tea.
