Neither. Maybe an iced coffee but that's it.

Any goes, or both. I've always been a tea person but now I can't seem to decide which one I like better.

I always start my day with a cup of black coffee and on the days I workout I drink a small cup as a preworkout. It gives me the boost I need to start my day. For the remainder of the day I stick to tea and water.

Always green tea first thing in the morning. A coffee (with milk and cocoa) mid morning then another tea (usually chamomile or other herbal blend or black) at night before bed. Sometimes I'll take the tea to bed with my book.

I cannot do coffee at all. I love tea and have quite the ever growing collection. For caffeine I do blends with black tea. I'm currently drinking a vanilla Earl Grey. My favorite caffeinated tea is Chocolate Rocket from David's Tea. I think it has more caffeine than coffee.

For teas that are calming of relaxing, I have some great green tea blends, as well as an herb garden I take full advantage of. My favorites are lavender and chamomile.

As for cups a day, that would be too many to count. I am constantly refilling my mugs.

I also have an ever growing mug collection, from quotes and saying to basset hounds and the occasional squirrel. A lot of what goes into the mug for the day is what is clean and not and what I randomly gravitate to on any given day.

In the winter I'm a coffee person all day. Maybe if it gets later in the day I'll switch to something like hot chocolate or black tea. In the summer I will drink a small cup of coffee in the morning, but the rest of the day it's tea. Doesn't matter if it's caffeinated or not. I just feel that in the summer coffee is just too heavy.

I prefer tea because I don't want to be addicted to the coffee.

I prefer tea to coffee, since tea is more common than coffee here in Kenya.

It really depends on my mood. Sometimes I will drink coffee and sometimes I'll drink tea. My favorite coffee right now is Kona Blend. I will either put cream/milk and 2 packets of Stevia in it, or I will put a caramel flavored sweetener in it. If I am drinking tea it varies greatly. I love green tea, peppermint tea, black tea, Chamomile tea, ginger tea, and a ginger-pear tea that a friend gave me. I always make my hot tea with a small bit of honey lemon. I will only really drink one cup a day. My favorite mug to use is one that I got while my husband and I were traveling in the New England area. My "writing spot" is sitting on the couch, under a big blanket, with my sweet puppers laying under the blanket next to me.

I really like coffee, but only with a lot of milk and some sugar. Tea is not really something for me, I don't like most of it. I really tried drinking tea, but I only like those really sweet berry teas.

For me, it's Chai Tea made from loose leaf in a tea ball. I cuddle on the couch with my cat helping me type as I drink out of my heavy clay mug with cats playing on it.
