What's you first drink in the morning? Tea, coffee, juice or maybe something else? And why?
I am a huge tea drinker (English upbringing) but my first drink of the day is always a coffee. I think it's just habit as it is quick and easy using my Keurig one-cup coffee maker. How about you?
Coffee has been my first drink of choice for as long as I can remember. If I don't have it I will end up with a headache. During the day and in the evening I'll drink tea.
I'm actually one of those people who CAN drink coffee late at night and still sleep. My wife is the exact opposite. I tell her I have a clear conscience...
I drink tea--brewed strong--no less caffeine than coffee--all day and evening. That is not a problem with sleeping. But I dare not take a codeine cough med at night--I'll toss & turn all night! Opposite of most folks.
I know I am the unusual one. In the winter it is a cup of coffee. In the summer, I have to start off my day with a Mountain dew.
I drink two things in immediate succession, so I'll lump them together.
I drink water because I've been told it's good for the heart first thing in the morning.
I drink coffee because I've been told it's bad for the heart first thing in the morning.
Why do I drink both?
Because I like the freedom to decide for myself.
I am a coffee fiend... I drink coffee from the time I wake up until I go to bed at night. I've never had any issues not being able to sleep after drinking coffee. I absolutely love the taste of it and sometimes drink 4-5 cups a day. Thank God for my Keurig! : )
Water, to remain hydrated. Then some coffee to wake me up or tea to keep a relaxed state.
I'm not a coffee drinker so my first drink of the day is Diet Cherry Dr. Pepper, right after my peanut butter toast.
Mine is coffee, which I find particularly comforting in cold mornings. However, I only like to drink one cup, and don't continue drinking it throughout the whole day like some people do. My last and second cup will be after lunch.
I drink 8 ounces of water every morning before eating any foods, it works for me because I sometimes exercise in the mornings. The mornings that I skip on drinking water I might drink a tea or coffee instead; occasionally.
My first drink in the morning is a weak cup of coffee with half a teaspoon of sugar because I believe it wakes me up as I am not a morning person. I mean it takes time for me to get up to go to work.
I like coffee but I don't drink it everyday. I'll have my coffee when i feel badly need it. My first drink in the morning is milk or tea.
I drink a smoothie made from spinach/kale, banana, frozen strawberries & blueberries, almonds, flax seeds and chia seeds. I use a NutriBullet to liquify everything into a delicious smoothie. I never miss a day. Then coffee and water the rest of the day.
COFFEE, COFFEE, COFFEE!
I did not start to drink coffee until I was in my 30's. My kids were young, and I had NO time to pursue my writing dreams because I also worked a full-time job.
So...I decided the only way I could MAKE time to write was to get up at 4:30 a.m. ahead of everyone else. Which I did. BUT I was SO tired, I started perking coffee in a corningware coffeemaker I had held onto from a marriage to my first husband.
I would guzzle it down while typing writing submissions at our dining room table.
It felt SO GOOD to get that almost immediate energy with the very first sip. I used to use sugar and milk, but now it is just milk.
To this day I HAVE to have my coffee. I now take it in a thermos cup on my daily morning walk. To be in the fresh air among nature, and to take that first sip is a wonderful way to start the day.
I am definitely a morning person and I cherish my coffee! Blessings, Sparklea
Water, because it's important to clean out your system first thing in the morning to better absorb whatever it is you're going to consume (vegetables, vitamins). After that I love to drink tea. My favorite is peppermint tea because it keeps my stomach soothed.
As an Englishman I'm also a big tea drinker (milk and 1 sugar). But I've developed a taste for good coffee over the last 12 months. I can't bear instant stuff but I like a good coffee now. I don't want to become one of those people who 'need' coffee though in order to start their day. That doesn't sound good to me.
It depends on what I'm eating... If I am having a sweet breakfast (croissants, pancakes, brioche, jam etc) I will have coffee but with anything else I'll have tea. I'm not sure if that is odd but I've always been that way.
Most of the time I swill down tea like it's going out of style. I mostly drink iced tea during the day, and hot tea on cold mornings. During the summer, I can go through 2 quarts of iced tea in a day.
Whether hot or iced, I like my tea black and strong; no additives, please! And I do not care at all for herb teas or green tea.
Weekends, I make myself coffee-mochas. As I'm not much of a coffee drinker, and prefer sweet things, for me, a mocha is more like hot chocolate with coffee in it. ;-)
Tea straight up is cool, but I like a dash of milk just to take the edge of it.
Oh, I do NOT like milk in my tea; in fact, years ago, I read that drinking tea British style, with milk & sugar, you are drinking the chemical components equal to leather. :-( Yuk
I either drink water to get myself hydrated and ready for the day, or I drink pop or soda, as some call it) for the caffeine boost and because I am absolutely in love with the stuff. Occasionally I'll drink tea, but I tend to drink a nice cup of it in the evening.
It is either a coffee unless I am the one to make it. While I am waiting I either have water or a soda. If there is left over coffee in the pot I will drink it cold.
Yuk, cold coffee! Sorry but that's just gross.
My mom used to fix coffee in the a.m., and sip on it all day long as it got colder and colder. Bleccchhh...
I can't really drink it cold from the pot but a sweetened iced coffee is delicious on a hot day
I'm a coffee fiend, but the first thing I typically drink in the morning is some water. I wake up, grab a glass of ice water out of the fridge, and then go about getting ready for the day.
After that, if it's a work day I head to Dunkin Donuts for an extra large coffee. If it's not a work day, then I brew a cup in my Keurig. Either way, coffee is necessary.
Cleansing the body of half a century of abuse (including far too much coffee).
Tea with soya milk and unrefined sugar (tastes much nicer than it sounds!) first thing, then lovely coffee later in the day. I drink water throughout the day in the interests of stopping wrinkles from forming
I've never tried soya milk, so can't comment on its taste. Good for you with the water - I try to drink plenty throughout the day too along with my copious cups of tea! Only issue is not to be too far from a bathroom!
I drink unsweetened Alpro Light and it is really nice, it taste quite sweet and the perfect compliment to your english cuppa! It is apparently a much healthier alternative to cows milk as well. Think of all the exercise sprinting for the toilet
Definitely coffee with soymilk...Peet's grind as the beans are cooked in house.I used to be a starbucks fan but I have boycotted them due to unfair labor practices for their coffee growers. They pay 1-2 dollars for their south american coffee growers and they sell my small chai tea latter for $ 3 a cup. THAT IS OUTRAGEOUS!
The first thing I drink in the morning is water. I mostly drink water anyway, for health reasons.
I am of the CFC (coffee fiend clan); however, although it was a Keurig Italian or the more elusive Columbian (I could always discover decaf yet the caf. version was quite elusive); since Christmas it is has been a Verismo expresso (4-shot) and a once a week, Starbucks "Gringo" more commonly identified as a Americano. Although I must admit because of all the pills I pop (vitamins) I do indeed down a glass of distilled water on the rocks before the cafeine is devoured... I seldom drink coffee after the mourn. Once in awhile I sip one in the early eve after dinner either by the fireplace or in our backyard.
My mother was; and my better-half is of the TFC...
The picture is of one of my brats advertising for Starbucks for free; they should hire her...
I starts my day by drinking 1 glass of water. It helps to clean everything inside.
I drink coffer every morning.. i just simply love the taste of coffee while i read emails and check my status and other stuff on Facebook and HP.
I usually ahve a nice glass of tea in the mornings. Sadly most the time I am in such a hurry that I have to settle for a soda.
Physically cannot function without my morning brew of tea!!
I drink a glass of cold water immediately after waking up and one hour later on the breakfast I drink green tea or coffee with cream

I have decided I have to stop. I am so sad. I love coffee; the taste, the smell, how it makes me feel.But lately I've been having pains in my chest that go away when I don't drink coffee. So, I think I'll have to switch full time to tea. I bought some green tea yesterday and when I was drinking it...

I was put on a Candida diet about 7 weeks ago, instantly had to stop drinking coffee (green tea only). At the 6 week mark, I was able to start re-introducing foods I had to eliminate, coffee was one of the first options.However, this morning I found myself tied between wanting tea, or coffee! I...
