Do You Drink Tea or Coffee?

United States

The English have a delightful tradition of having “TEA” in the afternoon with family and friends, sometimes. Even some workplaces in England stop for tea, which creates a better work atmosphere, I think. The conversation at “tea time” is no doubt, more important than the tea itself, because it allows some time to build relationships, an important aspect of a happier life. In the USA, there are hundreds of Coffee Bars and Tea Rooms in the bigger towns and cities. Friends linger over their coffee break, drinking a huge variety of premium coffee selections or tea. A person SHOULD be able to take a few minutes every day, to just relax and enjoy some pleasant conversation with your spouse or with workmates or friends. What do YOU think?

I drink both also. Lately on very hot days I've been ordering a caramel frappe, an iced coffee from McDonalds. I'm sure it has a lot of sugar though, so I don't indulge very often.

That sounds like a wonderful idea except employers who pay handsome wages to their worker wouldn't stand for it. Time is money.

Workers in the USA do get breaks during the day and there are "Break Rooms" But, a proper "TEA" would probably take longer than the usual 15 minute breaks they usually get. Even though "time is money" a more relaxed and happy worker is probably more productive after a pleasant break in routine. Just saying.

I really love tea. Sometimes I have some coffee but most of the day I drink tea. I would much rather have a conversation over tea than coffee.

@IreneVincent My hubby is the one who likes to put sugar in his drinks. Not too much but he needs the sweetness. I drink my tea with no sugar. I just plain like the taste of tea. Where I need a lot of sugar is in coffee because it seems so bitter to me and so I don't drink it too often. Way back when I had a habit of drinking black coffee not sugar nothing now I cannot drink it that way.

Neither a hot tea or coffee drinker. Yes, tea time is an institution in some countries.

I don't often drink the tea unless I am in the restaurant. Usually they will offer tea as one of their service. I like to drink coffee much more because I like to add sugar and milk to my coffee and therefore it tastes well. And most of all, a cup of coffee will make me feel energetic all the time. That's nice for me.

I like a good cup of coffee also and sometimes I drink iced tea with lemon juice. At home sometimes I will have a cup of hot herbal tea.

It can definitely be nice to take time to enjoy a cup of tea or coffee. It's a nice relaxing thing to do. Being able to go to a coffee shop or something.

It is nice to go to a QUIET coffee shoppe, but sometimes it's too noisy to really enjoy.

I like this too. I like small locally owned coffee shops. And we have quite a few around town here.

Yes, it's interesting how cultures differ in their favorite choice of drinks. I guess it's mostly how grow up and what your parents always drink. Then you adopt their choice. Usually.

I do not drink tea or coffee. I do like to drink pop or juice and relax with that.

Are you originally from the EAST? I don't hear the word "pop" too often. Usually, people say coke or soda.

I drink both tea and coffe ,It depends on my mood and who I drink it with. It remines me and old song:
