So... I live in America. A small town in the state of Ohio. OK, technically it's called a village, and there's only one street going into it N/S and one street going into it E/W. Yeah, if you blink, you will miss it - although it's a damn short cut so there's always somebody speeding up/down the street. My back yard is either wheat, corn, or soybean fields - whatever the farmer is being paid to plow under by the government. <_<

I've never drank a cup of coffee in my life - maybe two sips. I don't have much good to say about coffee drinkers. My drink of choice is tap water (I'm lucky it's very good from Lake Erie), usually ice cold and lightly flavored with either green or black tea and lemon with a pinch of sweetener. I'll have it hot with lemon and honey if I have a sore throat. I'm not picky and just buy whatever's on sale, although store brands can be a little bitter or stale, so I stay away from those.

Since you so politely asked. ;)
It's time to give this another go.

I'm a Brit but have lived in a few countries, UK, Singapore, Saudi Arabia, Spain and Sweden. I drink coffee (only ground in a press) in the morning then tea in the afternoon and Whiskey in the evening! I like earl grey on the odd occasion but normally drink Yorkshire tea (Taylor's). The Saudi tea was always very sweet. Spanish coffee very strong. Swedish coffee was hit and miss depending on the establishment. The coffee I sampled on the many times I visited the USA was always too weak!

Ain't that the truth!
I like coffee but do t drink it that often (probably 3-4 cups a week) because I seem quite sensitive to it.
Not like a caffeine rush but in the old guts and bowel area :lol:

I brew my tea in milk, no water.
Ewww, I know I'm weird.

Earl grey? Those leaves are picked monkeys? Or is that a different tea?

Brit here, tea is the drink to start the day with, proper English tea mind you, green tea is the work of Satan, although I do enjoy a good Assam. Then probably 6 to 8 cups of coffee during the day (what do you mean a heart rate of 100bmp isn't normal!), then more tea.

Living in Yorkshire and drinking Yorkshire tea.
I do take it without milk or sugar which some people find strange, but that's the way I like it.
Personally not a fan of Earl Grey, don't like the flavour.


Pennsylvania [US] here.
I dont normally drink "self-made" tea but putting milk in tea sounds strange and like something I'm not sure I'd want to try.


No stranger than putting milk in coffee if you think about it.


Tis true.
Mayhaps I need to delve deeper into the world of tea and away from the processed tea I'm accustom to consuming.

Red Rose Tea. Only available in Canada, eh? Pity.

South African here.

If I do drink tea, Earl Grey is my first choice (no milk, and a pinch of sugar sometimes depending on my mood)

But, am primarily a coffee drinker, and prefer it, although don't mind the odd cup of tea. I did deliver about 3000t of tea for the CG, though! :D

It's a part of life.
Like food, beverages, booze, video games, and sexual positions.

I aim to try all things I can get my hands on.
Some perhaps never touched again, others becoming new favourites.
