    Tea. Preferably Ceylon or Kenya varieties. Always loose, never in a bag.
    My favorite shop is teatrader.com

    I rarely drink coffee. Once or twice a month I'll brew a couple of cups of
    coffee. Caffeinated, otherwise what's the point? I drink it strong and
    black. Sometimes I drink hot tea. (I can't stand the stereotypical
    southern iced tea.) Hot tea infused with cardomon seeds, and I'm a milk in
    first (MIF) kinda gal

    The difference in cost between loose tea and tea bags is huge. I
    haven't bought teabags in at least 15 years. Iced tea made with cheap
    Chinese gunpowder is almost free until/unless one adds adjuncts like
    lemon and Splenda.
    http://www.amazon.com/Special-Gunpow...dp/B0009X65FC/
    $9.99 a kg last time I bought it.
    I'm happy enough with medium priced coffee too, SuperValu's® Java
    Delight®, which is probably in stores in most of the USA:
    http://coffeegeek.com/forums/members...reviews/512901
    Goes on sale frequently for $4.99/12oz ground or whole bean (reg.
    $5.99).

    Depends on the circumstances.

    Coffee in the morning. Tea at Chinese or
    Japanese restaurants. Iced tea if the place
    only has Pepsi and I want caffeine.
    About once a year I make tea at home,
    usually on a cold winter afternoon.

    I'm not really enthusiastic about tea tho I do drink green tea in
    Japanese and Chinese restaurants that don't sell beer. I also have an
    occasional cup of white tea in the evening. I drink two mugs of coffee;
    one after dinner and one with breakfast and perhaps another cup after
    dinner in a restaurant. That's my total caffeine fix since I don't
    really like coke.

    Why decaf, if I may ask?

    In our house, it's all good but it's all with whatever caffeine it came
    with.

    We drink espresso most of the time thanks a one-button espresso machine
    (bought second-hand via craigslist). The machine has its own grinder
    and makes delightful espresso. As the day goes on, we sometimes make
    hot or cold lattes, and often flavor them with homemade vanilla syrup.

    We have a drip coffee maker (also with its own grinder) we often use on
    the weekends, just for a change of pace.

    We're big green tea fans and make what's often known as gun powder green
    tea by the pitcher and drink it iced all year long, often with a little
    lychee-flavored syrup added. In the summer, I make batches of "boba",
    the tapioca starch balls used for Bubble Tea, and we drink that, again
    iced.

    We both also like hot tea, both regular and green. One of my favorite
    winter drinks during the day is a hot tea with one tea bag of English
    Breakfast tea and a second tea bag that's herbal, just peppermint
    leaves - I put both bags into a single, large cup and have peppermint
    black tea.

    If you're wondering how one even has time to drink all these, it's
    because neither my wife nor I eat much during the day - it's usually
    just a bite or spoonful or handful of this or that until dinner which
    is, btw, a wonderful way to mind your total caloric intake and therefore
    your weight.

    coffee! The darker the better. Have to have caf. For some reason
    green tea makes me nauseated.

    Both. I frequently have coffee on the weekends. Now, during the week
    in the mornings i have a cup of good Japanese loose green tea.

    In the afternoons a cup of yerba mate.

    In the morning I drink decaf coffee. If he did not drink coffee, I
    would not make coffee at all. Tea stains my teeth, so I avoid that,
    although I like it, both hot and cold. The last time I had tea, was in
    a Vietnamese restaurant in Seattle. We did not order tea, but they
    brought it to the table and I tried it. Most of the time, I drink ice
    cold water.

    Becca,

    Once upon a time, in Oakland, CA, I was apartment manager when they went
    away on travel.

    I occupied their apartment periodically for a period of time.

    There was a tea cup that was ridiculously stained so, being my usual
    self, I went about cleaning it all up. On their return I was scolded for
    my tea cup cleaning. I thought I was doing a good deed.

    Nobody told me!!!

    Sounds like a way to tank my blood sugar and become a complete

    Tea, of course. (I loathe coffee!!!!!) I like a nice
    darjeeling. But I'll drink almost any tea. I also love
    sassafras tea (the old version with whatever the "bad" stuff
    is in it). I know it's not really tea, but I love the stuff.

    I'm reminded of an art show I worked with John back in 2005. We were at
    Buzzie's, a truly cool 1950's diner on route 66 (not kidding!) in Highland,
    Illinois. We went there for breakfast. The server asked him if he wanted
    coffee then turned to me and asked, "tea?" Why on earth she thought I
    wanted tea I don't know. (John said it's because I look British... I'm not
    sure what that means.) I do like hot tea, but to me that's an afternoon
    (tea time!) drink.

    I remember tea & scones in Oxford, England, sometime between lunch and
    dinner. Seemed like English "siesta." Everything seemed to instantly
    come to a halt, in the hotel, anyway.
