Coffee, Tea or Other?
« on: March 15, 2010, 06:33:58 AM »
And I'm not asking about your political position.  :)~  As I'm swigging down my first cup of joe this morning, complete with froo-froo Cinnamon Bun coffee creamer, I was wondering what gets others here started.  I can drink coffee any time of the day or night.  I prefer it with a coffee buddy, but I'll take it alone too. 

So, what's your morning wake-me-up beverage?

Coffee. Sometimes 2 bags of green tea with a little instant coffee thrown in after the bags are soaked and taken out, add sugar then.

The green tea--decafinated. I used to work at companies that served free coffee all day long and found myself filling up my sports mug all day long. Several years ago, I decided that I could probably do well to take (some of) the edge off and cut out the caffine. Man, the withdrawal was brutal! Now, I'll have coffee every once in a while, but always feel like crap the next day if I've had more than 2 cups.

Well I don't drink Coffee, and the only 'Tea' I drink is "Ice Tea" which I don't drink in the morning.

Usually I have water with lemon for my morining drink, or sometimes semi-frozen chocolate milk (I like to put it in the freezer and let it almost freeze so it'll taste like ice cream! (I'm trying to lose a little weight so I have given up my favorite - Blue Bell Ice Cream).  Anything I can do to help me get through that (like freezing chocolate milk) is a help! :rofl_2:

A friend of mine recently introduced me to loose leaf tea and WOW! I like it.  I have never really been a fan of tea up to this point, unless I was sick with a cold and then it was ONLY peppermint tea.  But this kind that she gave me a bit of (some sort of Oolong tea with Jasmine, I think?) was a treat for the senses.  I could smell the flower as well as taste it.  Very nice.

Cream with some coffee :rofl_2:


Cream? Really? Or milk?

I had a friend--exchange student--from Sweden. When she first got here, she was raving about how good our milk was. I was like, huh? milk? So I asked her what she was buying, and she said it's called Half-and-Half. :yuk:  Now you're the second person I've known that enjoys a glass of cream.

I didn't realize that that's a picture of Tiger Woods. The episode hasn't even aired yet. It will be on tomorrow.

Oh, I drink Half and Half in my coffee!  I also have been known to use Whipping Cream in a pinch.  Hello fat grams going straight to my hips!

So do I. I'm just saying that a glass of Half and Half may be delicious, but it's pretty gross.

Capuccino during the winter/autumn and chocolate milk during summer/spring. Of course the milk with cereals and the capuccino with bay biscuits.

Neither. Non-lactose creamer. I'll add in some skim milk if it's too hot for me to drink. If I have some half and half, I'll add it because it's makes the coffee super creamy, but that's too many calories :yuk:

My parents used to drink like 7 cups of tea a day. on average. weekends, used to be like 4 by around 10 in the morning. It's a very indian thing to do. People drink tea left and right. So I promised myself I would never drink tea or coffee (same concept really, both are hot caffeinated beverages people drink).

Well, now I'm 21 and I decided that coffee and tea drinking are "adult" things to do. Especially lately when I go to people's houses with my parents and they offer me tea or coffee along with my parents and I feel just  a tad bit awkward saying me and my brother (who's 8) will have milk or some kinda juice or soda instead.
Not that I see any shame in saying I don't drink coffee or tea but you know, you "go out for a cup of coffee" when you have nothing to do.. its just  a very cultural thing to do.

So I have tried to acquire a taste for at least some kinda coffee/tea. At first I used to HATE, absolutely HATE the bitter coffee taste. Now I like the sweet coffees, I love French Vanilla Cappucino! And I do like strong tea the kind my parents have (loose leaf.. ). Another thing is I don't like hot stuff.. like hot drinks or hot food.. in general I  like things room temperature or cold. I drink Iced Coffee like the soda-vending-machine kind, I never counted that  as tea though.
Oh, I also like sweet lattes and coffee coolatas at Dunkin Donuts. I'm trying to slowly get the hang of bitter/normal coffee and put less sugar and stuff because its healthier. And maybe also green tea and oolong tea or something.
I drink every now and then, like once or twice a month. And I want to keep it like that, so I can have it when I "need" to or feel like it but not become addicted to it.

Funny you post this. I went out and bought two bottles for the first time in my life. I am thinking I should go on a diet, I really need to lose a good 20lbs at least by summer.
