Most people I know tend to be pretty firmly entrenched in the coffee camp or the tea camp...not much crossover.

So, what's your beverage of choice? Are you a coffee person? If so, how do you take it? Black? Or froofied up with all sorts of syrups and creams? Or are you all about the tea? Chamomile? Earl Grey? Rooibos? Or do you just drink Neo-Citran and walk around all day in a pleasant haze?

If I want something nice and hot to go shopping with I get the white mocha from starbucks, or I do plain black coffee. that one is a good energizer. I also like Irish morning tea, but my all time favorite hot drink is Hot Chocolate mmm with loads of marshmallows

lol...Thanks Anika, thanks for that. I didn't start drinking cream in my tea until I got pregnant, and now I just can't kick the habit. I kicked the root beer, but somehow not the cream.

Tea for me! Earl Grey and Chai are at the top of the list, as well as English Breakfast and I also enjoy Rooibos...I take cream--yes I said cream, and sugar in my tea.

Black tea, no milk, no sugar, just a big spoonful of good honey mmmmm.... preferably in the morning with soft boiled eggs on toast with lots of black pepper. Or any herbal tea with honey, no milk.

Before my first pregnancy I was a coffee addict, had to have at least one a day to function. Good coffee, italian espresso style never any sweetener, but the only hot drink apart from hot chocolate that I could drink with milk. Now I rarely drink coffee (seems like I'm always breastfeeding or pregnant!) but the smell of fresh ground beans and fresh brewed espresso still warms my heart.

Mmmm I love Cinnamon chai tea with whipped cream on top (yummy yummy).



I like coffee at home or in other people's homes because people cannot make tea...scratch that...because my MIL can't make tea, she makes dishwater in a cup and calls it tea bleugh!



Tea in most cafes and restaurants because the coffee is too strong for me there! Starbucks and other coffee shops I have a latte of some sort though ;-)

I don't drink tea or coffee.
Actually, I rarely drink anything hot, unless it's hot water with lemon or in the winter, I will drink french vanilla cappuccinos, warm apple cider or peppermint hot chocolate.

Once in a blue moon though, I will have a cup of kicking horse coffee with a flavoured creamer... usually hazelnut or caramel.

Chai! In any form lol. Hot, frozen, in cookies, cakes, air freshener etc.
I ♥ Chai.
You can even get Chai liqueur! OMG it's fantastic.
All other teas come in at a close second, then coffee (preferably french vanilla).
I currently have about 20 different types of tea in my house.
And for a nice desert (or in the mornings for the hell of it) nice cup of regular tea (with milk) and a couple Tim Tams is perfect ^_^

Darn it. I knew I was spelling Chammomile wrong yesterday. How embarrassing. Moving on...

I don't enjoy anything hot....not coffee, hot chocolate, or tea; to be honest, not even my dinner....I prefer food cold or luke warm at best. You won't find this chick eating anything "hot". My mom thinks I'm strange and we've noticed Roxanne following in my footsteps. Ooops. but IF and on very rare occasions that someone insists I have something I would opt for a herbal, non-caffeinated tea. Preferably CHAMMOMILE. I even drank Neo-Citran cold...BLECH!

Hate all coffee EXCEPT at christmas time Starbucks comes out with a peppermint latte thing, that I LOVE!
Other then that, cold drinks for me, and by drinks I mean I could live off of Watermelon Slurpees year round :)

I like coffee but I have to put a package of hot chocolate mix in it to be able to drink it lol...

No-water chai with a squirt of vanilla and whipped topping and either cinnamon or chocolate sprinkling.

My favorite is French Vanilla Cappuccino....but I will drink a three cream three sweetener coffee as well...

Augh...holy cats, Brittanie! Just the thought of that concoction is making me feel ill.

I do like a cup of Earl Grey in the evenings. I'm an evening tea drinker and a morning coffee drinker. I also enjoy rooibos tea, and love a nice chai (if they made perfume that smelled like chai, I'd wear it.)

I wish they made non-medicated Neo-Citran, though. It is such a soothing drink when you're cold.

I'm an absolute tea addict!! English breakfast... not this fancy herbal stuff! I can drink like 10 or 12 cups a day... mmmmmm... might go brew me a cuppa now :)

[deleted account]

Mocha. Not coffee filled mocha, but this mostly caffiene free mocha powder that I have. I also do it 50/50 w/ Nestle Quik.....

For tea (which I very rarely drink) I like this I Love Lemon stuff. Caffiene free and w/ Vitamin C. That w/ a bit of honey helps whenever I've got a cold or something. :)

Haha im a coffe snob , i used to be a barista so i know good coffee when i get one and i know shit coffee when i get one and i am a very harsh critic LOL

[deleted account]

I'm a tea girl. English Breakfast mostly. I HATE proper coffee which is a bummer because my husband is the biggest coffee snob you have EVER met. I don't mind instant coffee though, but I mostly drink that just to wave it in my husbands face and go "mmmmmm" LOL. And kinda related but not really, I hate the smell of Starbucks cafes. Ick. Every time we visit the US we end up at Starbucks (because bad coffee is better than no coffee in my husband's book) and I hate it! Ah well. :)

I only drink hot coffee when I'm a smoker, so I don't drink it anymore. I used to love going to Starbucks and getting a White Chocolate Mocha, and sitting with my friend smoking clove cigarettes.

But now I just stick to cold drinks (like my iced chai... mmmmmmmmm).

I'm a coffee person, myself. I used to drink it with cream and sugar, and then switched to milk and sugar, and then just milk, and now I drink it black. I can still handle it with milk, especially if it's strong coffee, but if I tried to drink it with cream and sugar now, I'd probably barf.

Peppermint or Green tea with honey, I used to drink coffee but after going without when I was pregnant because the smell made me sick it gives me a headache now.

Black coffee, with a few shots of espresso. "Kamikaze," "shot in the dark," whatever the coffee house I'm at prefers to call it, is my drink of choice. My friends say it's just steamy motor oil.



Not a fan of hot tea, love my iced teas.



Also love hot cocoa and apple cider.

[deleted account]

Mmmmm coffeeee....me want. I like it every way except black.

I don't drink a lot of hot tea, but I do like Earl Grey with one sugar and some milk.
