Hello lingli. I am more of a tea person. I drink tea every day. Once I get to the office, I start to make tea. I do not like plain water very much. So tea is always my first choice. Besides, it could make me feel awake when I feel tired and sleepy. and have to get concentrated in my work.

I was a coffee drinker only. I would drink it all day. But in my efforts to lose weight, I've cut way back on the coffee (1-2 cups in the morning) then drink green tea all day long. :O)

Always on! - coffee maker
I am a coffee addict! I always have a pot on during the day. I'm so bad that it doesn't even keep me awake no matter how late I drink it. Once in awhile I do enjoy a cup of tea...in fact I have one in front of me now but I love my coffee!

I can drink either coffee or tea, but I like coffee better. I don't drink coffee or tea everyday, though.

I was big lover of coffee, btu since we came here to us and the coffee is not the same, I stated to drink much more tea. Now I will drink coffee only like ones a two weeks and 1 liter of tee every day. But I am glad I change it, since tea is much better for you.

Yes laurika, Coffe is not the same everywhere. The way we make coffee at home is different. So whenever I go out I do not drink coffee, I try to manage with Tea. I need coffee only in the mornings and so I can manage. But it is very difficult if you get used to drinking coffee and then not being able to have it. All the best

I love the taste of coffee...but I'm not addicted to the caffeine so I'm fine just drinking Decaf coffee. But I've never liked tea although I try it again every so often. To me it just tastes like slightly flavoured hot water (which it is ;) ) whether it's regular or herbal. So I'm definitely a cofee fan!

IF I drink any "hot" beverage it's generally tea. My drink addiction is mostly diet sodas, Diet Pepsi in particular. I've tried to add on more water lately but that's hit & miss with me! I love a good tea though. Just seems to relax you and make the world slow down.

I am a tea person though I don't refuse the coffee. Maybe I perfer to slight flavor, so tea does. Occasionally I drink a cup of coffee under the circumstance of extremely tired when I have to sit up. I really enjoy the flavor of coffee. But I sometimes feel uncomfortable like fast beat of my heart if two or more cups of coffee once.

I am definitely a tea person. I don't drink coffee or even eat a food with a coffee ingredient or flavor. I don't know why. It just that I feel dizzy whenever I smell a coffee aroma. Maybe it is also connected wit your situation. I have been gastrically sensitive and undergone a colon surgery twice. I used to drink coffee but after my two operations, I lost my taste to coffee.

We do not drink coffee or tea because of Religion preferences. However, we do drink herbal tea as long as it is pure herbal tea.

Both, but I drink more coffee than tea. I can drink coffee with out sugar but need cream. Tea I need sugar to drink it. Cream doesn't work that good with tea like it does coffee. Everyday just about a 12 cup pot of brewed coffee for breakfast every morning. It gets me started for the day. Right now I have a cup close by.

Hi lingli_78. I loved coffee. I prefer to drink coffee in the morning to make me alert and stays awake., I like the taste of herbal tea, but I just drink this very rare. When I got stomaches upset I prefer tea. And when I want to stay alert I like coffee. I'm a coffee addict, and it really satisfy my day, most specially in the morning!. 1 cup of tea is good, but when you take to much is not healthy, and If you have a hyper acidity coffee is a big no no. Take care my friend. Just take Milk instead of coffee. Happy myLot and wish you best of luck!

Hi lingli_78, I like to drink coffee so I am called a coffee person I guess. I think more people drink coffee than tea. Tea is good for your health so keep on drinking tea. Sometimes I want to drink tea but when I smell the coffee I prefer to drink coffee. Have a nice day to you to my friend lingli
