On waking up in the morning who would not desire to have a good cup of tea. In fact tea enlivens your senses and builds you up for the day.With or without milk, tea as a rejuvenating drink has little substitutes.Nowadays tea is available in the forms of leaf,dust,green,herbal etc.Unlike caffeine in coffee tea is of lesser harm and more of beneficial properties for general health.

Yup but it is much less than coffee usually (if we are talking about caffeine).

I really prefer coffee because of it's extreme waking affects with caffeine. However tea can be enjoyed any time of day and in multiple quantities. Unlike coffee, more than one a day can be unhealthy. I love Earl Grey. Makes me feel a bit British, cheerio.

Usually I have coffee in the mornings and tea at night before I go to bed, it relaxes me, I think it's kind of the same as if I had comfort food, it's comforting. It's kind of nice to know at the end of the day that there is something warm and relaxing waiting for me. I also drink a lot of the bottled teas when I stop at a store. I don't know if the bottled teas have the same effects that homemade does, but I like the taste of black and green teas, sweetened with NO lemon.

I like coffee when I first get up in the morning or evening. I like tea later on during the day. I have never drank warm tea but I bet that would be good in the wintertime. I may try it.

Tea has been described as 'the cup that cheers but does not inebriate', a very good description. In England all ills can be cured with a nice cup of tea.

I like green tea. Unfortunately I haven't been abe to break my two cups of coffee in the am. But that little bit is not reaaly going to hurt.

I'll admit that on these recent cold mornings a cup of hot tea or hot chocolate has been hitting the spot, but normally I'm drinking my tea iced - in fact, as I sit here with my breakfast, I've got a cup of hot tea beside me and also a glass of iced tea - because if I'm really thirsty, the hot stuff just doesn't do it.

I used to be totally addicted to coffee, but switched to tea drinking several years ago. Now I can't imagine having coffee instead of tea. I still prefer the smell of roasted coffee beans, but manage to resist it without too many problems these days. - Derek

Hi sukumar794, Which particular type of tea do you drink? For me, I do not have the habit of drinking tea (I drink green tea in the evening) in the morning to wake up my senses. Normally I would choose to have cold milk/soya bean or any hot beverages. Tell me more, I would love to kick start my day better.

When I don't sleep enough and have to get up for work, I always drink a lot of tea to build me up for the day. Tea is a good stuff to me. But I try not to drink tea in the late afternoon as I don't want to keep me wide awake for the night.
