Coffee or Tea in the morning?

    Random question

    What do you like to drink in a morning to wake you up? A cup of tea? a fresh-ground coffee? a glass of orange juice?

    I like a cup of tea (two sugars please) on waking up. But a cup of coffee with a shot of mocha when I sit down at my desk in my office. 

    This is a quick shot of my desk right now

    So, come on guys. What's your poison?

    I drink 3 - 4 mugs of coffee a day! I was actually told to stop drinking so much 

    I'm also a tea fan

    Hahaha morning. Coffee all day every day, I have a problem, I admit that but I will continue to drink 4-5 cups of Coffee a day (that's only weekdays, throw another two in and I'm good for weekends)  until I run out of Coffee (so soon if I don't buy more)

    I'm rapidly coming to the conclusion that nothing in my life is either normal or simple. I work nights, so when I'm working (12 hour shift) I drink around 10-12 cups of coffee per night. When I arrive at home in the morning then I'll have a glass of milk. and drink juice. If I have a day off (Night off) then I'll only have a few cups of coffee.

    3-4 cups of coffee Tai? I drink that in the last two hours of my shift. (I'm not boasting here, IF I gave up coffee I'd probably collapse and die)

    Most days a choice cup from my Keurig. If I have time, mostly weekends, I grind beans. When I am running late and desperate, I'll hit the Foldgers-Year-Old-Cheap-Stuff at the work pot.

    So, coffee is a must.

    Now that you mention it, I'm drinking coffee right now (9:15 am est)

    I used to drink almost an entire pot of coffee a day, but now I'm down to only two cups. I also like Earl Grey tea.

    Coffee was discovered by a farmer eating goat shit. It looks and tastes like diarrhea. Coincidence? Nope.

    Tea is an elegant beverage, from a more civilized age.

    I will drink either, but I much prefer tea.

  • April 29, 2015 1:10 PM EDT

    While I am partial to a good latte (or whatever the fuck my friends ordered last time we went to Starbucks), I only know how to brew, choose, buy and drink tea.

    Coffee, if I ever get up early enough to make it. Although the end product is more like sugary milk with a hint of coffee.

    Never been a fan of tea. Hot, iced, sun, green, no thanks. I would have joined in the Boston Tea Party simply for the fact that I dislike tea. Thinking of staging another just typing about it.

    Cold milk.

    I was once drinking coffee but then I begun drinking it without milk which caused it to taste so bad I stopped coffe drinking.
