For coffee I always go straight black.

I only drink tea if I'm sick or feel sickness coming on. I mix in a spoonful of honey and a spoon of vinegar. It's disgusting but it usually does the trick! :)

Milk and two sugars for either beverage; if it's coffee then I stir up the granules with the sugar and milk before I add the boiling water so it doesn't burn the coffee.

Whiskey or baileys is also a good subsitute for milk, well dependant on what time of day you're caffeinating yourself; also I'm not sure if the term has been coined before but I refer to coffee with baileys as an "Irish Latte".

I love strong black coffee and my plebian tastebuds can't discern a good brew from my instant Nescafe. I also love trying new teas, though my favourite is jasmine green tea.

I am not a sugar person, but I love full cream cafe or matcha lattes - just can't have them too often since I am sadly lactose intolerant.

Coffee: On the very rare occasions that I want coffee, I like it mild to medium roast, lightly sweetened, with a fair amount of cream or milk.

Tea: Tea is my daily drink of choice. Every day or two I brew up a big pitcher (and brew it somewhat weakly) of flavored white or green tea and keep it in the fridge to drink unsweetened throughout the day. Now and then I like some good old iced black tea with lemon and a little bit of sugar. When it's cold or my throat is scratchy I like a hot cup of Earl Grey with a bit of honey. But lately it's been fruity flavored white teas on ice. Currant, raspberry, citrus, pomegranate, peach...

For coffee, I use my Nespresso machine, which makes the best espresso on earth. And I drink double espressos, without sugar, milk, or other adulterants.

For tea, it can be hot or cold, but not from a powder, and no sugar added.

In order of what I drink, its:
Water
Tea
Coffee
Carbonated beverages
Vodka
Rum

I like creamer and two sweet n lows in my coffee. I also like my coffee strong and like dark roast or bold flavors. I was appalled at work the other day to find a can of mild roast coffee. Gah...it was like drinking brown water. Or worse yet, hot tea. I do, however like iced tea, no sugar.

Coffee - Gevalia Traditional Roast - to 1 cup of coffee I add - about 6 oz. unsweetened Silk Soy Milk, 1 good splash of DaVinci Sugar Free French Vanilla syrup. I usually drink 2 to 3 tall mugs of coffee in the morning.

Weekends - Sometimes as a special treat, I'll opt for English Breakfast Tea instead of coffee. I usually add a splash of cream and 1 packet of Splenda or half a packet of Stevia. I reserve tea to weekends because it takes time to brew and cool and I don't have the luxury of time during the work week.

Tea - Hot - I love Celestial Seasonings Bengal Spice. I'll add a splash of cream and 1 packet of Truvia or Splenda. I also drink Sleepytime Tea and several other herbal blends of tea.

Tea - Iced - Celestial Seasonings Decaf Green Tea. I use stevia as a sweetener for this. I drink this all afternoon long. Sometimes I'll switch out and drink Mint Green Tea. I always use lots of ice (we have a crushed ice machine at work).

Coffee with 1 scoop of Secure Soy protein shake and cremora, or 2 splendas with cremora. The protein shake is a necessity cause of weightloss surgery that left me with the need for consistant vitamin supplementation and anemia...yet I'm still a very big girl. :huh:

I don't drink coffee often, but when I do I just have it with some basic sweetners. I've tried hazelnut sweetner once. It's ok.

Tea? I don't generally sweeten tea unless it already comes sweetened. I'm a tea head though. I like various types.

I usually get cream, sugar, with a tiny bit of coffee added. Seriously, I'm so pale I'm see-through, and most of the time my coffee's lighter...

Tea gives me heartburn.


Coffee, milk and splenda. If there's no splenda I have two teaspoons of sugar.
