Default Coffee or Tea?

If you are one of the many that imbibes caffeine, especially every morning, which is your choice, coffee or tea? Both, but one more than the other? What types are your favs? I'll post mine when the phone stops ringing.

I usually have a caramel frappucino or a chai latte from Starbucks. Yummy, I could use some caffeine right about now.

COFFEE : Espresso over ice. 1/2 n 1/2, Equal

Tea : English Breakfast. Honey and 1/2 and 1/2.

I didn't start drinking coffee until I was 30. Once I did, I got addicted like everyone else. Until then, I was strictly a tea drinker.

I like both, but nothin gets my a** in gear in the morning like Starbux iced triple espresso

Wow, you do a triple?! woo hooo...bet that does work. Just be sure you have plenty of potassium and other electrolytes and then you know the caffeine shouldn't mess your heart up.

I was raised in South Texas with the coffee really hot and the tea really cold. the coffee maker always had coffee, from rising till bedtime.

I moved away upon marrying and can't recall how I got so hooked on hot teas instead of coffee, but now I have coffee maybe once a week, or less but I have six to eight teabags a day, two at a time in a giant, 32oz. ceramic mug from "Big Dogs" outlet of Waikele.

I dig flavored black teas the best, but a red and white tea infusion sure is a nice change and very healthy. I'm working on emptying a cup right now, ahhh.

I am a strict coffee drinker. I make it in a 12 cup pot and turn off the warmer (burner) after I draw the first cup so subsequent cups won't be burned or bitter. There's not much worse than 'burned' coffee. I use a blend of one part Gevalia French Roast to two parts Maxwell House French Roast with one pinch of salt to kill all the bitterness.

Any coffee left over gets put in the refrigerator, from which we pour and microwave individual cups on subsequent days. No sense wasting a good cup of coffee.

I drink mine black, my wife uses half-and-half and Truvia (wimp).

What do you mean 'I'm obsessive?'

Just don't drink too excess on the tea. I don't know about the coffee (yet).

Coffee every morning, hot, black, and strong. I buy roasted whole beans from Blackgoldcoffeecompany in Georgia, $50 worth at a time (to get free shipping) at about $9/lb., usually Indonesian, Italian roast.
