Question Coffee or Tea?

So, which is your caffeinated... or decaffeinated, as the case may be... brew of choice?


--
Personally I'm a heavy Tea drinker. I'm especially fond of spiced black teas. And in fact I have a severe distaste for Coffee.

I like nothing more than drinking a large, strong coffee whilst reading on my Sony.

I can't drink straight coffe (only a tiny little bit with milk or in the quantities in a coke), I become "alergic" to it for no reason (i get sick when I drink an expresso, for example).

I don't like tea... It's like hot water. I guess it could be a matter of habbit.

What I find out a like to do while reading in my Cybook, is to be nibbling a piece of fruit. That one advantage of having an ebook: it frees one hand.

Tea! Tea! And more tea!!!
I drink about 3-4 litres of tea every day. English Breakfast tea (Taylor's of Harrogate,) Yorkshire Tea (it's not for them wot's from Surry!) Keemun and Assam. Hot and black, no sugar or lemon. For a rainy cold November day reading by the window, nothing beats a steaming mug of Lapsang Souchang. (Except perhaps a good single malt.... Nah... TEA!!)

I am mainly a tea drinker- made with leaf can't stand the taste of the paper in tea bags or the poor quality dust they are made from.

I do however enjoy a cup of fresh ground coffee with my breakfast along with fresh orange juice (from my garden, whole 6 months of the year have oranges)

So I voted Tea , Coffee - and Spain of course

i must have my cafÚ au lait in the morning (as my brother once remarked, there's no point in trying to talk to me before i have ) but the rest of the day i drink tea. at home i drink it black, no sugar or milk, and depending on the time of day and my mood i like lapsang souchong, cha´ masala, prince vladimir from kusmi tea (similar to earl grey), or maybe black tea like keemun, or else ginger tea (particularly in winter or if i'm feeling a bit under the weather). my father makes black tea with honey and with him i drink it the same way even though i don't take honey at home.

i can't drink coffee past lunchtime, it will keep me up, and in fact too much tea will as well so in the evening i drink non-caffeinated tea. my current favorite is a masala chai made with rooibos tea, i can't pronounce it but it tastes good ! sadly i finished the box so i'll have to go back to the indian neighborhood to get some more.

Tea!

I love Taylor's, sadly it's not that easily available here... We need a new batch... I'm particular fond of Earl Grey.

And I can't stand Rooibos... (who would drink a red forest anyway?!?!)

i used to agree with you, until i tasted this cha´ masala rooibos. it tastes not like rooibos (which, in my experience, has not much of a taste...) but like cha´ masala...

if you like earl grey, have you tried princ wladimir ? i thought i wouldn't like it because i'm a bit of a purist but it's quite delicious...

Wow what a pretty tin.

'Fraid I am a coffee drinker - doesn't even have to be posh coffee, can just be old freeze dried instant lol - I just love the stuff. First cup is at 6:30am normally and last is about 10pm. Maybe that is why I have trouble sleeping...........

I like both at different times of the day so I picked neutral.
An English Breakfast to take back to bed with me in the mornings. (The joys of being old and retired.)
Vanilla tea mid afternoon.
Coffee midmorning and late afternoon.
(Tea and coffee don't get a look in in the late evenings - that's time for muscat.)
I have about 6 different kinds of tea bags and 6 different flavours of instant coffee.

CHOCOLATE! (you people are falling down in the polls, let me tell you!)

Okay, coffee. Fresh, hot, and weak (sorry). Frankly, I prefer just a cup (a pot, really) of Folger's (sorry). After my morning pot is gone (about 9:00 or 10:00), I'm fully wired and so go strictly decaf the rest of the day by drinking herbal teas.
