I mostly grab a Diet Dr Pepper out of the fridge. That's not to say when its really cold, I won't heat up some water & fix tea or hot chocolate. I'll also drink iced tea if I have it made. I mostly do the cold stuff because its there & its no work AND I live in Texas, where its more often hot than cold.

In the summer it NEVER gets below 70º just at dawn, the absolutely coolest part of the day. It can be 90º at midnight. And, its humid in my part of Texas, in the mornings humidity can be in the 90 percentiles. So, if you think 75º with 92% humidity is cool, then maybe it does.... I don't. May say 75º, but it feels like 85.

I drink iced tea a lot in the morning. It's a nice burst of cafeine to wake up in morning if I need the help. For hot drinks, I enjoy the occassional cup of hot chocolate! But not often, I like cold drinks better.

I drink hot chocolate,tea and coffee. It depends on what mood I'm in. Tea is very good with lemon n it. Allof it is very refreshing and relaxing.

I think a hot tea or coffee in the morning is better. It stimulates you brain and make you alert after the long sleep and not to forget the limit of quantity to be consumed

i feel tea is a better option than coffee as tea is an anti oxidant

I would have to say that I normally drink tea in the morning because when I drink coffee too early in the morning I find that my stomach gets upset. And I only like to drink hot chocolates during th afternoon on a cold winter day.

i also get upset stomach when i get to drink more than 1 cup of coffee in the morning. so after i drank a hot coffee at home, i drink a hot chocolate in the office. (i tried also to drink green tea in the morning in replacement of cofee, once or twice in a week) and a cold refreshing iced tea in the afternoon.

hi, I usually start by drinking water first when I wake up in the morning, and after breakfast, a cup of tea will be nice. and hours later I usually have ice tea. I rarely drink coffee, unless I've still been too sleepy in the morning when I have to work, because if I drink too much coffee I will get addicted to it. ice chocolate drink will be good at noon, because sometimes I might feel a bit hungry but it is still not dinner time yet. and warm chocolate will be good when it is raining. ^_^

We take tea in the morning breakfast hours. Tea is available here and we pay a little than coffee and chocolate to purchase it. Coffee and chocolate is expensive here in our country so we prefer tea to take in the morning. A couple of hot cups of tea make us fresh and warm in cool winter season. So we like it very well.

tea is by far my preferred drink out of the three. proper english breakfast, milk, but with no sugars is definitely the best. Chocolate can be nice later at night, but coffee would keep me awake with all the caffeine!

yes, i think tea should be the best drink out of the three but more often i go for a hot coffee in the morning and cold iced tea in the afternoon, it's refreshing for a hot day.

I am a coffee drinker. I drink two to three cups a day. I am also a chocoholic. I love chocolates as much as I love coffee. So I have no choice but the two.

I had learnt from an article that to take black tea in the morning and this could get rid of the waste material from our body. Then to take green tea in the afternoon could make our body healthier. But I still prefer to take coffee in the morning and green tea in the evening.

I don't like coffee or hot chocolate...but I do love to drink hot tea! I drink hot tea almost every night while I'm up (I work night shifts) and I drink it sometimes before I go to sleep. Love it!

A quick swill of water to take away nasty night-mouth and then a nice cup of hot tea is always a winner. Tea is refreshing, uplifting and simple enough not to mess up in a bleary state.

i've read in a book that blood type a people should drink water with the juice of a half sliced lemon! i guess tea is really good if we are after its medicinal effects.

Coffee to wake me up as I have such a hard time getting up in the morning. I really look forward to it because I only have one mug a day, any more and I don't sleep.
