    I clicked coffee. But actually I drink both hot coffee and iced tea, almost never hot tea. Since the OP was from Michigan, I assumed he was asking about hot tea as opposed to coffee.

    Exactly, MaryP, that's why coffee is awesome.

    Whether coffee, tea or chocolate, I depend on caffeine for a personality. :p

    I love coffee, but I also like hot tea in the wintertime or when I'm not feeling well. When it's cold it's too expensive to drink several cups of coffee a day to keep warm. So I drink either regular or herbal tea.

    Sometimes I like iced tea.

    Coffee ofcourse

    Tea is only for sick and pregnant people :)

    I lived in Wales for about 6 months, and while I was there my flatmates got me hooked onto tea. I'd never had any kind of tea but herbal before, and so I thought of it as kind of weak stuff that you drink when you're sick. But British tea is...shall we say...stout? Its wicked strong stuff! Now, I'm absolutely addicted. I can't get up and function in the morning without a cup of English Breakfast with some milk.

    And, as Toni mentioned, another plus for me is that its cheap!

    Coffee in the AM, ice tea the rest of the day during hot weather. We have a hot afternoon tea time in the winter.

    I drink coffee and love a good cup.
    I drink iced tea and love it.
    I drink good hot tea and enjoy it; especially with home made shortbread.

    An avid coffee drinker for all my life, (mom claimed to give it to me in a bottle!):eek:, I never would have dreamed that I would become a tea drinker.
    Except iced tea of course...sweet iced tea..sweetened with real sugar when brewed, not added later. HOWEVER, when my daughter came back from Ireland, she got me hooked on Irish Breakfast tea with a teaspoon of honey.
    I put a cup of water with a tea bag into the microwave and zap it for 3 min.
    ...comes out really stout. So let's see...:think: I like stout tea. strong black (stout) coffee, and Guinness Stout.:lol::lol:

    I like both, but prefer tea. I can never finish a cup of coffee--too much caffeine, and I make it very weak! But I could drink a cup or two of black tea with milk and a wee bit of sugar. I only enjoy coffee with french vanilla creamer, or caramel chocolate creamer, etc, though I would drink it with milk and sugar instead if had to.
    But I have been on and off pregnant for almost the last four years, so perhaps that is why!

    I prefer iced coffee, actually. I'll drink hot coffee if it's mixed 1:1 with cocoa, though.

    I voted coffee but I do drink hot and iced tea as well. Oh, and don't forget hot spiced Cider!

    I chose coffee because I figured it was choosing b/t the hot varieties of each. However, I do like iced tea, as long as it is sweet.

    And you know what they call sweet tea -- "The House Wine of the South."

    I have one real coffee when I first get to work, a decaf mid-morning, and then green tea throughout the day if I want it.

    I used to drink 4+ cups of real coffee during a work day and was getting pretty jittery. Maybe it's a sign of getting older. I can't have a cup of cafeinated coffee after diner anymore either; it will keep me up all night.

    Even though I drink my hot tea a little sweet, I drink my iced tea, "unsweetened."
    I have heard that this is a sin, especially that I live in the South!

    I started drinking coffee when I was seventeen or eighteen because my mom always used to keep a pot brewing around the house. Even at that time I don't remember ever getting a "buzz" from it. I wonder if, over the years, I've just developed a tolerance to it. I can drink three cups of coffee in the morning and not feel anything (to my chagrin), and I can drink two cups at midnight and go to sleep.

    Granted this isn't any gourmet coffee, just Folgers or Maxwell House or stuff like that, but even when I do drink "nice" coffee, I still don't notice anything.

    The only time I ever really "felt" coffee was when I went to some Pentecostal pastor's meeting (from various Pentecostal churches and denominations in Charleston) back when I used to attend charismatic churches. A pastor from the Vineyard had just returned from Africa, and he brought some coffee from, I think, Kenya.

    I had half a paper cup full, maybe even less than a half, and felt like I was hooked up to a humming V-8 engine. Just a pleasant vibrating buzz that 100% woke me up good and proper.

    I would love to have some of that stuff, or know where to acquire it for a reasonable price.

    It is, Jessi! It is! But not as bad as being a Gator fan. ;)

    Tea all the way. Hot or iced -- both at all times of the year. A good Assam tea is my favourite. Always made with boiling water (I love my electric tea kettle!) -- unless it's green tea, of course, in which case I let it sit a bit so that the temperature falls (I think it's supposed to be 85ÂșC for green tea). At the end of last term, I also took to making sun tea in my water bottles. I really need a proper container for that sort of thing.

    At certain crucial moments, when I need an extra caffeine boost, I'll stop by Starbucks for a coffee (I don't actually own any coffee whatsoever, such is the rarity of my drinking it) -- iced in summer, holiday coffees in winter (I think it was a ginger bread latte that got me through my last final last December!). Because I pretty much just get by with tea, I haven't been desensitised to it, so the coffee actually helps.

    Coffee in the morning and tea the rest of the day, hot on cool days and iced on warm days.

    Iced Tea (NON sweetened) is OK, I prefer water.

    Coffee (caf or decaf) I drink for the sheer pleasure of it. It is a reminder that a loving and provident God has given us the fruit of the ground for our pleasure and enjoyment as well as for our sustenance.

    Real men drink coffee. Hot tea is a girly drink for readers of Jane Austen novels and effete Europeans. :lol: (UK and Scandinavian brethren and lovers of Austen novels, no real offense meant, but certainly intended by the tease!).
