Chai became SO popular so suddenly... I've still never tried it.

The coffee place across the street from where I work has pretty good cafe mochas and frozen mochas. They also have this drink called "Viennese Chocolate Delight" which is basically a very thick hot chocolate and then it's supposed to be mixed with cinnamon and milk. Sounds DELICIOUS. Well, much to my dismay, on my very first (admittedly large) sip, I realized they do NOT put cinnamon in, they put CINNAMON SYRUP in.
*coughcoughgaspspluttergag*

It was like drinking a cinnamon imperial.

I can't see how some people can stand coffee. I'm ok with tea but coffee makes my stomach turn every time I smell the stuff.

Ok. So ask for a Chai blended with ice. Same shit.

There is huge variation in types of tea, though; it's hard to tar it all with the same brush. I tend to not like "normal" teas, though, I drink green tea generally.

That's the way the British drink it though. I have it with sugar too, which is generally frowned upon.

Maybe he was the victim of a school prank, like getting a wedgie. Except worse. Much worse.

But regardless; straight, unadulterated black tea is heaven on earth in my opinion.

On the other hand, I don't like Earl Grey. It's the bergamot; way too "citrusy" for my tastes. In any hot drink, I want it to be as strong as possible. That goes for coffees and teas. Sure, Earl Grey is black tea, and black tea is plenty strong enough, but the bergamot makes it too fragrant.

I want to fear my tea, as if it might kick my ass if I disrespect it. Earl Grey smells like a girl.

For some reason, the bergamot makes my teeth hurt... I like black tea though. Real strong. No sugar. It's best if you drink it out of a glass cup. Don't ask me why.

NO, but I do it anyways because it's sterile and I like the taste.

Our local coffee house stocks Kenya AA. It's a really dark roast, really oily, but not bitter at all. I'm not really a big fan of Kona, it's a little light for my taste.

But, on the other hand, if you hand me a cup of Kona, I won't bitch.

Make sure you don't overlook African coffees in your coffee tasting. Some of the offerings from Somalia and Kenya are really top notch. That and some of the mexican coffees, but Mexico can be a mixed bag.

Oh, I've had them all. I generally love heavy, strong coffees, but I hate Kenyan. Oh well - everyone's different. Just a personal taste thing.

6 years on, and I've become a regular tea drinker. Love having a "cuppa" in the evening. I usually have a black tea, occasionally an English Breakfast blend.

New England Journal of Medicine found that coffee drinkers "who drank at least two or three cups a day were 13 percent less likely to die for any reason during the 13 years of the study.

I like black tea. Finding decent black tea around here is problematic but this is actually a very consistent B:

Chai is tea... It'became really popular ... suddenly... about 5000 years ago. Calling it chai became popular with annoying yuppies and preppies suddenly in the 90's as did pretending boiled weeds and milk was tea. Europeans started drinking tea and wearing silk somewhere around 200BC when Zhang Qian mapped the routes for what later became the silk road.

Interestingly enough, America owes tea. The Chinese workers who built a lot of Americas railroads did not die like of typhus like the European workers largely because they made some tea instead of drinking contaminated water.

Good thing I had that Senseo way back when

I wonder if the Keurig at the office will suffer the same fate a few years from now.

Frank has just brought coffee to me at my PC. It's Markus Mild from the supermarket Aldi.

Dunkin Donuts... We have them also in Berlin, for example 3 U-Bahn-Stations away from us. They should finally open again the latest 2 U-Bahn-Stations near our end, because it's a pain to use the bus. Since August 2013 there are repairments in the tunnel and on these stations. I want to reach Dunkin Donuts much faster, because I want to eat some now...

Strangely I've not really got any sort of regular morning drink, except maybe orange juice. When it comes to caffeine though I'd rather drink tea... most coffees I can't stand (not that I've tried that many, to be honest). Even with something mixed in, .. eh. That said, I used to like tea a lot less until I found out I was overdoing the steeping. Oops.

I drink the coffee a very few times a month.
I prefer to green tea as compare to black tea or coffee because green tea is more beneficial for the health and fitness.
