I Think Coffee has its advantages, but tea wins in the war of the antioxidants. While green tea is most commonly associated with antioxidants, white tea actually contains more. Coffee also contains antioxidants, but in a much lower concentration than white tea. Thanks

    Tea, hot black British Tea, with milk and sugar, the best. Now and again, a coffee but I would never buy a coffee maker, instant is fine. In fact, when I was married my wife had a Keurig and I found I could make a perfect cup of tea by placing two teabags in it.

      I'm with you on the tea. I like the Constant Comment, Chai,
      Orange Zinger, and many of the various flavored and herbal
      ones. My tea box is an 18 gallon Sterilite tote. I love it with
      sugar and cream as well. I'll have to give your Keurig
      method a try.

    No coffee - lots of tea.


    Constant Comment in the morning - Moroccan mint - heavy sugar - in the afternoon - Earl Grey with a bit of Amaretto in the evening. Many of the teas like Constant Comment come in a Green Tea version now - supposedly healthier. But I like my strong black tea...so...I alternate them.

    ...and English Breakfast and Irish Breakfast and on and on - have about 3 dozen varieties. Not much on the herbals - I like my caffeine. Some of them also make great iced tea in the summer.


    Have never tried it in Keurig - we have one of those but no one uses it....I do insist on heating my water in a teapot rather than microwave...don't ask me why as it doesn't make sense....


    Many times I've wish I liked coffee - but never could acquire the taste for it.

      I like honey and lemon in my hot tea. Again, don't know enough about it to have preferences.


      I love the smell of coffee. The taste isn't that special to me. A little milk in the coffee (always decaf) and I'm fine.

      I have friends and business associates that invite me to cigar smoking and wine tasting get togethers. But I don't smoke (although some cigars have a pleasant smell), and I know nothing about wine, music, poetry, sports, or anything else that would make me interesting.

          Whenever I have a small accident, or something doesn't go my way, my wife will usually say "Poor Baby! Suck it up" (she really does)..

          And then I get to say "I'm not going to suck it up. For the rest of the day, I have a reason to feel sorry for myself, and I'm going to take full advantage of that".

          I'm not joking. The whole day is back and forth like that. Fake arguing. Fake scolding, Fake self pity, Fake pomposity.....OK, the pomposity is real..

          And it's been over a decades since I've moaned.....or since my wife has moaned. But keep that private. People will think I'm an idiot if this gets out.

    Coffee in the morning. No machines just instant. Strong with one sugar and a dash of milk. Afternoons, English Breakfast tea, black, one sugar.

    In-betweens, a special choc flavoured dietary supplement drink I'm supplied with as part of the recovery from my operation earlier in the year, and fruit juices (apple, orange, or blackcurrant). The rest of the time bottled water.

    After dinner, just water or the choc drink. Nothing sugary or with caffeine otherwise I can't get to sleep.

    Honestly i think tea is a much better option than coffee. For me personally coffee has had its side effects like its caused me to break out a lot more. I also think its makes me feel weird after having it before food. Tea on the other hand has always made me feel i don't know somewhat healthier, especially green tea. Feels like intoxicants are being washed out of me lol.

      Brown sugar in coffee, acceptable, brown sugar in tea?. I'm surprised you have not been arrested for this travesty. White sugar only for tea. It's the law and I don't make the rules.

        No sugar needed in either. Trust me on this. Give it up now and persevere through the discomfort. After a month or two, I guarantee if you go back and try a coffee or tea with sugar, all you'll taste is the sugar.

          I'm afraid I will be turning over this post to the authorities in the UK who will triangulate your position so that an arrest can be made and confinement in an iron coffin with spikes on the inside can be implemented.

          The laws surrounding correct British tea making are set in stone. A Tetley Teabag (or PG Tip Pyramid bag) is introduced to the cup along with two sugars. Boiling water is applied and left for 4 minutes (less for the PG tip bag) A splash of 2% milk, teabag removed and cup stirred. Perfect cup of hot, sweet tea. The caffeine and the sugar provide the instant rush required.

          Without that extra sweet addition I'm sorry to sell you that you are suffering from S.A.D

            Heathen. Teabags are a recent introduction, only in use in Britain since the 1950s. 2% milk is an even more recent abomination. As for adding the milk before removing the bag...

              Full fat milk destroys a cup of tea, zero fat milk is too little. 2% is just right.

              Teabags, well it's just tea in a bag.

              I need to clarify my description. I do remove the teabag before applying the milk, that is stir, press the teabag to the side and remove, Then apply the milk and another little stir. Please don't report me although I don't know if extradition from the US will be possible for this misdemeanor. I came here under a misapprehension that I would lead a long and happy married life with an American woman. Well, at least I can get Tetley tea, that's the important thing.

                Tea managed perfectly well with proper milk for centuries before the skim fad came along. But do as you must. However, a taste for sugar really shouldn't be carried into adulthood.

    Coffee is more preferable actually, nevertheless I don't mind drink a cup of green tea, because it contains lots of antioxidants and it calms down nerve system, while coffee cheers up. Scientists recently have proved that coffee decreases the risk of cancer appearance, because of its healthy features. However, people shouldn't be used to drink lots of coffee per day, because it also can be harmful for the nerve system. Basically, people can drink anything they want in case they have a measure. When you have a measure, nothing can be harmful for you. So, it doesn't matter whether tea or coffee.
