I've got to "beef" up a little and stop being the whipping boy around here.

Your poll should have a NONE choice as well. Not everybody drinks coffee which makes the poll invalid.

Hate coffee. Diet DP or Pepsi myself, five times a day. Same result. Used to drink two six packs a day of the real stuff, but at about age 32 I could no longer fit into size 34 pants, so I switched. Thanks to cardio, and diet crap I stay a 32 waist now. Age, eh?

That'll be 'Earl Grey' and if you drink it with milk you need shootin' ;-)

That stuff will kill you! Research shows that soft drinks, especially "diet" soft drinks, are very bad for your long-term health. You might want to cultivate a taste for coffee.

I don't drink coffee, if can avoid it, It makes me thirsty. Tea does not. I believe for that reason coffee was usually served with a glass of water in old style coffee houses. I stay away from tea bags and mix Assam tea leaves with about 15 % Darjeeling for taste, the same amount of Earl Grey for aroma, and add one or two cardamom seeds to a pot. The tea mix goes into a tea ball. The key is to let the pot heat up before adding the tea and again filling with hot water and placing it on the samovar and to be heated by steam. The pot should be ceramic/pocelain (unlike the pic).

I drink 2-4 cups of coffee a day for its ability to reduce cirrhosis of the liver by 80%. That helps to offset the effects of my 2-4 martinis a day.

On a cold morning in Iran, you would buy piping hot tea from a road vendor, pour it into the saucer to cool faster, place a sugar cube in the front of the mouth, and slurp the tea through it. One of lifes small pleasures.

Captain Jean Luc Picard likes Earl Grey Haught. It was a couple of years of watching Star Trek before I realized that he liked it 'hot'.
