You would have seen ALL of yesterday the news about how a coffee cup was left in a scene in Game of Thrones.

It took a lot of viewers by surprise that Daenerys Targaryen seemed to have visited Starbucks before she celebrated that night with everyone at the feast. 

Naturally the internet went a bit wild with the thought of takeaway coffee cups existing in the Game of Thrones universe, forcing HBO to respond.

In a press release, it said: "The latte that appeared in the episode was a mistake. Daenerys had ordered an herbal tea."

Well played guys. 

Elaborating on the error in an email to Variety, art director Hauke Richter said that this sort of thing happens on set all the time, but in this instance it has been blown way out of proportion.
