    Do you prefer coffee or tea?

    I'm a tea drinker. Black, white, green...I like them all. I never liked the taste of coffee, but I do like the smell.

    I have no preference, either coffee or tea anyone is ok. But recently morning time I am consuming tea and evenings I am taking coffee.

    100% Colombian Coffee, of course!!!  We love Maxwell House 100% Colombian Coffee.  No whimpy stuff for me!  LOL  I have to have it, and the rich great taste satisfies like no other. I tried to add a photo, but none would take?  LOL

      That's my husbands coffee of choice! I do love the smell, not the taste.

    I'm a black tea drinker. I drink it hot in cold months, and iced in warm months, without sweetener. I'm not big on green tea, and I really loathe herbal teas. I never really got the hang of making and drinking coffee.

      I drink my tea straight up also. No sugar or milk. I also do not like herbal teas.

    I have tea at home, but occasionally have coffee at Canada's favorite - Tim Hortons.  Drink green tea brews mostly for the health benefits.

    I prefer tea. I don't drink coffee because i simply just don't like the taste. I love green tea. Tea has also more benefits than coffee. smile)

    I like tea except for the green, which upsets my stomach. But I much, much prefer coffee! Rich, strong Maxwell House, Folgers or my favorite, McDaniel's.

    Tea for me please made with fresh boiling water, poured immediately into a large brown teapot where ideally loose leaf Assam or similar strong Indian tea sits in a little pile waiting to mingle and mix with those molecules of H20 then it's wait, wait, 3 or 4 or 5 minutes for the perfect infusion after which you can pour the peaty rich tea into a big mug where previously you put a little milk by now the steam and aroma is filling your head so make a space, sit down, grab two or three chocolate digestives (biscuits here in England, cookies in the US) a book and relax by slurping down that good cuppa tea.

      Sounds interesting and delicious, but don't you strain the loose tea?  When I make teas from loose leaf, I put them in a little tiny "tea strainer" that sits in the pot.  Is that a "No-no?"

    As long as it is well prepared, I enjoy both.

    Coarsely-ground dark-roast coffee beans brewed in a french press; or Twinings English breakfast tea steeped for five to six minutes, with milk and two sugars.

    Preferably start with distilled water or a purified water with the lowest mineral and sodium content available.

    It depends on the mood! Coffee is always good in the mornings and tea is always good at night. That's just my preference smile

    Tea for sure and really almost any tea from strong black tea blends to the mildest green and herbal teas. Though these days I also like coffee sometimes.

    Penny Gposted 9 years ago

    I like both, when I am sick I always go for tea. I drink it other times too, but it makes me feel so much better when I have a cold especially. Coffee I can drink anytime, especially at work as I am a night worker.

    Oh yeah.....deep, dark, rich, freshly ground coffee beans, freshly brewed...and lots of it.  Everyday, all day....a little Splenda and a little touch of cream....Mmmmmmm   I LOVE coffee. I have been in heaven since owning a Kuerig which allows me to make one cup at a time, each cup as fresh as possible!!
    Also enjoy a cup of tea now and then, black or green and herbal as well.  I make my own gallons of iced green tea with lemon & sweetener to have a cold beverage on hand since I do not drink sodas......
    I'm one of those people who is shocked to learn that there are actually people who do not drink COFFEE!!  I used to respond with, "You're kidding...really??!   LOL..........good question, GF.

      I'm one of the anti-coffee consumers. I never liked the taste and I will never understand all the fancy coffee drinks. To each his own smile

      Well know my frugal ways.  The "Fancy Coffee Combo Drinks" do not tempt me in the least.  Whether they're purchased from coffee shops or made at home....they're seriously OVER-priced!!  Love you even if you don't like coffee!!  LOL

    I prefer coffee, but I'm trying to stay clear of it these days because it's making me more jittery than usual. I guess my body can't handle it the way it used to.

    Neither. I rarely drink hot liquids. If I do it's usually hot chocolate.

    I love ice cold sweet black tea.  I am the same way Sunshine.  I do not like coffee but love the smell.   It makes me hungry.

      I've never tried ice cold black tea! Only green. That's a great idea! smile

    I love the taste of coffee, refreshing and awakening and who can beat that fresh Colombian smell?

    I'm a black coffee drinker in the morning and midday. But I find that as I grow older, I am turning more and more to tea. I can't seem to tolerate coffee 24/7 the way I used to.

    I take both tea and coffee alternatively. 4 cups tea and 2 to 3 cups coffee per day. Since 6 am to 7:30 pm normally at intervals of 2 hours or so.
    I like both of them. I prepare the filter coffee with the chicory mixed powder. Tea is natural ingredient blended powder.

    I prefer tea, even though like you I like the smell of coffee. BUT!!! I can't drink coffee (sometimes my stomach can be too sensitive for it !) I like Lipton tea!!!!

    Personally, I prefer coffee. It allows me to wake in the morning and  good cut throughout the day is relaxing. Not to say tea isn't great too. Tea helps lose weight, is great anytime of day, and is very soothing.

    I PREFER coffee, but because of an ongoing acid-reflux problem I'm involuntarily bound to tea.  Actually, it was my fondness for Starbucks espresso-blend coffee that caused my reflux issue!  (Who said too much of a good thing will never hurt you?)
