Hi, KUSHANK55. This question about whether one prefers coffee or tea is not a simple one for me. That is because I like both of these beverages you mention. I think that I select coffee more often than tea. These days, if I am out and about, I tend to order an iced, decaffeinated, nonfat latte, without sweetener at either Dunkin Donuts or Starbucks. That's my favorite drink right now. PearlGrace

I personnaly prefer only coffee.. i dont like tea.. We use to have a coffee in the morning once we wake up, brush our teeth.. immediately have a coffee then only the day will start for us.. for all our family members.. May be in the evening, we use to took a cup of coffee.. We never took any coffee/Tea in between.. That will affect our stomach.. it distrubs a lot.. As for as "Tea" is concern, i don't have a habit of having a tea, from my childhood days.. so, i never taste it yet.. In my office tour, i forced to have one cup of tea, but i had the same with half a cup of tea for a half an hour of time..

okay it is all the same with traditional indian families. ours being a hot climatic zone taking more of tea/coffee will definitely spoil the health something like stomach upset or even liver problems, acidity etc. so one has to limit the quantity of whatever beverage you take.

I prefer tea if compared to coffee. If not necessary, I won't take tea. I know that these two, tea and coffee, have caffeine more than any other drinks, but coffee has more caffeine than tea. So yes, milk is probably the best drink for us. thx for the advice. PS: You may want to look at my discussion under title: "Is it true that tea affects pregnancy or planned pregnancy?" I posted a long ago and some myLotters wrote about the scientific studies about caffeine in tea and coffee. thx

really is it so? is there any scientific basis for this kind of thinking or just a hearsay mrs.jofeli. if you go by hindu (indian)philosophy then i will recommend lot of good milk(specially cow milk) for you and your husband and no tea for a few months before pregnancy. it will definitely have a direct bearing on semen which will become thicker and some other effects.

Hi Kushank, haven't seen you in a while, so I thought I'd stop by and see what was up. Anyway, I'm mostly a tea drinker but I do occasionally enjoy a cup of coffee. It doesn't always agree with my stomach though, that's why I started drinking tea!

so nice of you dear, to have remembered me. i appreciate your concern , i was a bit too busy with some other activities but you see you wanted me here and there i am responding to your response!! telepathy!!! gooD GOD YOU ARE GREAT!! well tea is definitely more refrshing and lighter on the stomach. better go for light and unboiled black tea. you will relish and enjoy it!! just try and share your experience!! good luck and thanks again!!

i drink both. i prefer coffee with some flavored creamer, especially in the mornings. but i have a couple of favorite teas that i will drink when i am in the mood for something a little sweeter. one is a vanilla caramel tea and the other is raspberry royale tea. yumm! i also have a white chocolate kisses tea that i have to try. i like sweet, dessert teas! :)

Coffee is the number one choice for me! I drink it all the time though I know it's not so good since I add 2 teaspoons of sugar with each cup... well I use a mug not a small cup. I don;t like tea with milk, in winter I drink tea with some honey and a slice of lemon.

hi you. interesting question .well it all depends on mood , occasion and your own feeling . normally coffee making is a ritual kind of a thing and takes little longer to brew than tea so it also depends on time too. well some people make really good coffee so with these people i wd prefer to go for coffee. otherwise normally tea is ok. but a glass full of cold coffee after dinner will always be welcome.
