Which do you have to have first thing in the morning or during the day.

Tea-
Coffee
Herbal Tea
Other

Im more of a coffee drinker with two sugers though i do go through stages of either tea or coffee, not a fan of Herbal tea.

I just drink normal grained coffee not a fan of the special coffee avaliable.

During the hot months of summer, I start my day off with a Large Dunkin Donuts Regular Ice Coffee with milk and sugar I'm addicted to it and sometimes have 2 a day.

When the weather gets a little colder, I'll start my day with a large hot coffee.

Every once in a while I will drink hot tea.

Yes. While Coffee is more popular in the United States, I believe that Tea is right behind it as far as hot beverages go.

We mostly use Tea bags here in the states. Has the use of tea bags become more common in the UK? Or are tea leaves still used by the majority?

As far i am aware tea bags are the most common. I think maybe the older generation use leaves still, i know they still sell it in the shops.

I picked coffee. Lately I've been drinking decaf. I pour a little of this in my coffee. I'm addicted to it. French Vanilla. I haven't tried the other flavors yet.

Coffee, coffee, coffee!! I drink a minimum of three cups per morning. On the days I go into the office, I have three cups before I leave the house, and another one or two when I get to work.

I have started drinking Arizona Iced Green Tea with lunch. It's really good.

Depends on the tea. Regular breakfast tea, yes. Earl Grey, herbal, green or white teas no.

I never developed a taste for coffee, and have never drunk it. I do like tea, and drink it occasionally although rarely in the morning.

Yes, DeNiro, I use milk in my tea, and would guess that more people in the US, who drink tea, use milk rather than lemon. I usually drink Red Rose brand tea although it doesn't make a difference. I buy that brand primarily because my mother collects the small porcelain figurines that come in the box. She has many that she keeps in her basement. I should add that my father is a voracious tea drinker while my mother has never had a cup.

I remember drinking a lot of tea when I was in Ireland in the 1980s, and it was far more delicious than anything I ever drank here. I imagine the tea in Britain is just as good.

My mom would give me tea with milk when I was sick. I still make that association with it... you have to be sick to drink tea with milk.

Both of my wives were Irish, and they'd drink their tea with milk. My people would drink tea out of a glass (a glass tea). I like some of the flavored teas but there's nothing better than a good cup of coffee with breakfast.

I LOVE coffee! But after many years of drinking anywhere between a quart and a pot of black coffee a day, on an empty stomach, it stopped loving me. \:\/ I can have the occasional cup after dinner (only when I'm at a restaurant), with cream, but for the past few years it's been hot tea (green and/or black) for me when I get up... and hell no, no milk in it!




I studied Italian for 2 semesters. Not once was a "C" pronounced as a "G", and never was a trailing "I" ignored! And I'm from Jersey! tongue lol

There was a time I used to drink many many cups of tea every day. Indian tea has to be drunk with milk for good taste. The flavored, herbal, green tea etc are not very popular there. I drink these now, without milk of course. Iranian tea is just one of the best and has to be consumed without milk. My Iranian friend makes it whenever I visit her home and I just cannot stop. I try to make Indian tea at home, but it takes more time and effort to make than coffee.

Having said that, what I end up drinking most nowadays is coffee. At home, I make it completely in milk with instant coffee and very little sugar. In my school, I try to get the strongest and blackest coffee with no milk or sugar. It is not for taste at all, I need it to keep myself awake.

A good friend of mine, who was born and raised in Italy (A funny story how I met him...I'll tell sometime), told me as a kid he would drink hot barley in the morning as a kid. He said it was good. I had never heard of that, but it sounded good.

I used to drink plenty of cold barley in the morning. Only difference is, we call it beer, here. ;\)

Definitely coffee for me, usually only in the morning, but it's always brewed when I wake up. It's gotta be black. None of the sissy stuff like cream/sugar. \:D

However, I also drink Ice tea and hot tea. Although, hot tea I haven't had in a while and like SC, I relate to having it when I'm not feeling well, like a sore throat. My mom would always serve me tea/toast. \:\) Btw, I "have" to have milk/sugar in my tea. Go figure. ;\)

Speaking of coffee, am I the only one that likes regular ol' coffee????
I never go to Starbucks or feel the need for anything other that my regular black coffee, be it Maxwell House, Folgers, or whatever????? I think I'm the only one in California that doesn't go get a latte (or whatever) every day.

Because I've never had coffee, I probably wouldn't know a latte, espresso or capuccino if it slapped me in the face.

My wife's favorite coffee is Eight O'Clock Columbian beans. I think that's regular old coffee.

TIS, I don't get that whole latte, macchiata, whatever it is. I like coffee. I used to get Gevalia delivered, but then realized how ridiculously expensive it was, and switched to Folgers. I tried Martinson's recently, but I didn't like it at all. I do enjoy an occasional cappuccino or espresso, but only after dinner,

As for tea, I enjoy most kinds. I usually buy whatever is on sale to keep in the house for company. But when we drink tea, it's Twinings English Breakfast Tea or Earl Grey. If I do herbal, then it's lemon.
