Usually coffee. But since you mention tea, I think I will give Chai a try. What could be better since I love chai already than chai and a good book?

Tea with honey is a staple for me. For both reading and writing.

I also like cappuccino.

I usually read and write with a latte! I cannot live without coffee.

It depends on the day. If I'm feeling indulgent, I will have coffee with creamer, but otherwise I have tea. Lots and lots of tea.

I am not a drug addict so I avoid mind altering substances if possible. Coffee sometimes smells acceptable but the taste is so horrid I wonder why anyone would develop a taste for it (sort of like escargot, you eat that? My stars, WHY?). On the rare occasion I drink coffee - such as facing dehydration with no other acceptable liquids available - the preferred mix (supposing a standard 10oz restaurant cup) is a minimum of 2oz of cream and at least 6 tsp of sugar. Hopefully that will kill the taste enough to choke it down.
I drink tea. Usually I drink about 1/2 gallon a day but when summer hits, with the 100+ days, that will climb to 5 or 6 quarts. Mint is almost always part of the blend added to some other herbal flavoring agent. At the moment my mug holds mint and ginger; yesterday it was mint and blueberry. The tea is cold unless I am cold then I will drink it warm.
The book I am currently writing has a Sherriff's lutenent drinking traditional Navaho Greenthread tea and a bumbling deputy that drinks "Float-a-wrench" nasty coffee from the local diner.

I don't like the smell of tea, so I like coffee better. It helps me get through the day and energized me. I think I can't go on a day without drinking at least one cup of coffee.

Definitely tea. Preferably herbal or green, straight up, brewed in the pot until beginning to cool, then poured into my favorite pewter mug. Lately, I've been drinking a chocolate chai blend with some honey added, though I also enjoy peppermint or a loose leaf fruity blend from time to time. Then turn on some epic, classical or soundtrack music in the background and write. :techie-studyinggray:

I do enjoy a cup of tea (milk, no sugar) during the wintertime, and often also have green teas. During the summer I tend to drink water or carbonated soft drinks. Occasionally I'll have an iced latte (weather permitting) and really enjoy it, but I don't have it too often otherwise it begins to taste too sweet! I think I tend to drink plain water more than tea or coffee though!

I am a tea person. You can say tea addicted or teaholic. I am not ashamed of saying I AM A PROUD TEAHOLIC 🤪🤪💐💐💐💐💐💐
