Am in the middle of a book review which happens to talk about this quite a bit. From a medical standpoint (according to the author) 2-3 cups of coffee in the morning is good, more is bad. If you still need a fix, next go to green tea which is very healthy for you. If you can't handle green tea then black teas are also good - just not as good as green tea. Of course, you should avoid adding sugar.

Coffee or tea, it depends on what sounds good at the time.

I'm not a fan of coffee. I'm more of a tea person. I can take any kind of tea, from cocoa beverage to ginger to green. And yeah, tea works good with writing, but it's not a necessity.

I try to write soon after waking up and I normally do this with a coffee at my elbow. There's always something special about the first one of the day! I normally drink instant coffee - I'm lucky enough to have some Douwe Egberts in stock now, because it tastes so good. I drink it preferably with whole milk. I do like black tea too - of all kinds. I also drink this quite a bit and prefer it with skimmed milk. At the moment I have a Ceylon and Assam blend on the go, which tastes great.

Most definitely tea,I don't like coffee so I rarely take it. Mmh milk tea if you ask me with just a notch of sugar and slow music,this is what puts me in the mood to write. I don't have a special mug or anything, can drink from any mug and feel relaxed

Can I toss in a vote for Red Bull or am I not allowed?

Tea! Because often coffee gives me the jitters. But a nice cup of tea or two is enough to keep me awake without the stress coffee induces.

I love tea, especially herbal tea. My favorite tea is lemon grass. I usually drink it with milk, and I like to eat bread while drinking it because I can wet my bread in the tea. Besides, I prefer to make my tea from the real leaves of the plant; I do not like to use tea bags. I like to drink it in my bed.

I don't really drink either often, but when I do its usually English Breakfast tea with some milk and far too much sugar. However, Diet Mountain Dew is my drug of choice.
